    I'll be looking forward to this game, the first two were really fun. "Holiday 2015" is a little vague though, is that easter holiday or summer holiday or xmas holiday or one of the bank holiday weekends ?

    Holiday period in this regard is almost always some time during school summer holidays.

    I thought the "Holiday" season/period was Christmas time.

    PCGamer staff revealed that playing Just Cause 3, at the Avalanche Studios HQ in Stockholm, presented "not a huge leap from Just Cause 2, but it's more fun, more polished, and more over-the-top in almost every respect." Hopefully that's the kind of news Just Cause fans will be happy to hear.
    Erm, "more of the same, but more polished" sounds pretty fine to me.

    I thought it was usually the "Fall"/Thanksgiving period.

    That said, if JC3 is even half as good as some of the leaks (and doesn't need some kind of supercomputer+GTX980 SLI setup) then they can have my pre-order now!

    I wonder if the plot will be as disturbing as the plot of the second game? Although, to be honest, I didn't even notice the plot when I played JC2, and only realized how disturbing it is when I thought back to what I had seen and put the pieces together. Even the much vaunted GTA series has never had a plot quite so cynical and psychopathic. What's even more disturbing is how realistic the idea behind the plot was...

    Re: Just Cause 3 to hit PC, PS4 and Xbox One by Holiday 2015

    I always found JC to be totally underwhelming, probably due to the lack of a proper story-driven plot.

    Which is a shame as I love 3rd person adventure titles. I guess I've been spoiled with things like TLOU, Batman, GoW, TR etc....the 2 JC titles so far I couldn't care about after the first 30 minutes

    Sorry, I'm going to disagree with you strongly on that. Although I'll give you that if the story didn't grab you then I can see how you're going to be bored.
    First off, the dev's have been very clear that JC (and especially JC2) was about the Michael Bay-style set pieces. Secondly, a "story driven plot" in Gears of War? Seriously?! AFAIK the "story" in GoW was about as engaging as CoD:Ghosts, i.e. not even challenging to a Sun reader. Batman at least had the detectivey bit, but apart from that it was pretty much a beat-em-up button mashing fest, (based on playing the first one)
    Lastly, there definitely IS a story thread going on - with the main one being the usual "locals being used as pawns of superpowers just after resources". Plus there's the Apocolypse Now ripoff looking for the White Tiger.

    Yes, the JC2 plot IS pretty cynical. Okay, it's not Clear And Present Danger or All The President's Men, but still... Although I still think it'd have been a nice twist for Baby Panay to try and offer Rico a job rather than just trying to decorate the walls with him. Wouldn't agree though that JC2 is more psychopathic than GTA, just perhaps, "grimier".
