Just Cause 4 Expansion Pass Detailed Over a Month Before Launch
The Just Cause 4 Expansion Pass has been detailed by Square Enix over a month before the game launches for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
Yesterday, we learned that Avalanche Studios and Square Enix’s Just Cause 4 had gone gold over a month before launch. That means the game has hit the “gold standard” for release and the printing of physical copies. Now that the base game is locked in, Square Enix has turned to hyping up the game’s expansion pass, titled Just Cause 4: Demons, Dare Devils, and Danger.
All three parts of the alliterative expansion pass title are representative of the three waves of DLC coming; in fact, this is not too dissimilar to what Avalanche Studios and Square Enix did with Just Cause 3‘s DLC. Because the game is releasing late this year, all of the expansion pass content is slated to release throughout 2019. That being said, those who pick up Just Cause 4: Gold Edition will gain access to all three DLC packs within the expansion pass seven days early.
Pack 1: Dare Devils launches in early 2019 and has an emphasis on destructive racing. That DLC will have Rico participating in various death races and “rampage rallies” in the underground of Solis, the fictional country that Just Cause 4 takes place in, so those who like the driving and destructive nature of the Just Cause series will likely be pleased by this.
Later on in 2019, we can expect Pack 2: Demons to release. This pack is also referred to as Los Demonios and is a more story-focused expansion that sees Rico taking on a demonic force infecting Solis. That’s definitely much more supernatural-focused than what Just Cause fans like myself have to expect, so I’m curious to see how well it meshes with the rest of the game.
After that, Pack 3: Danger will hit PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Also known as Agency Strikes Back, this DLC has Rico face new enemies and find new weapons and technology as he fights The Agency, a CIA parody agency that Rico worked for during the events of Just Cause and Just Cause 2.
While some people are dissuaded when companies advertise DLC before the launch of a game, I infer it as confidence in the product and a guarantee of support. Just Cause 4 has already gone gold as well and none of this content is coming until next year, so I highly doubt any of this is finished content being left out at release to sell as DLC. Those of you looking forward to Just Cause 4 can check out DualShockers’ previews on the game. One is positive, the other not so much.
You can watch a brief video teasing the expansion pass below. Just Cause 4 is poised to release for PC, PS4, and Xbox One on December 4, with the Demons, Dare Devils, and Danger Expansion Pass content releasing throughout 2019. If you want to snag the base game and guarantee early expansion pass access, you can pre-order Just Cause 4: Gold Edition on Amazon.
