During their Square Enix Presents showcase, the company revealed new mobile titles for Just Cause, Hitman, and even Space Invaders!
While all eyes were on the console reveals and debut for Life is Strange: True Colors, Square also revealed some upcoming mobile titles based on some fan-favorite franchises.
Expanding the series, Just Cause: Mobile delivers the explosive action of the Just Cause universe to your fingertips in action-packed, single-player and multiplayer experiences that offer on-the-go grappling, gliding, and shooting, all presented through exhilarating top-down gameplay. Featuring in-game cutscenes and fully voiced characters, players can customize their agent and join the ranks of Firebrand, a special division within the covert organization, “The Agency.” The mission: stop a new mercenary group under the name of Darkwater. Darkwater is a group made up of ex-Black Hand military forces from overseas that are now a major threat to The Agency across the globe. As a new recruit of Firebrand, day one starts off with a major attack on the base – one that the player narrowly escapes alive. Firebrand leader Carmen Padrón gives you the order to further investigate the mercenary group Darkwater and track down allies to assist you on your mission, including her former agency partner Rico Rodriguez
Throughout the campaign, players will come across well-known characters from the Just Cause series who will give important intel on the enemy and assist players as they embark on missions. Team up with battle-hardened mercenaries such as Annika & Teo from Just Cause 3 and locate the whereabouts of ex-Agency legend, Rico Rodriguez.
The Just Cause: Mobile campaign will take place across three sprawling open-world locations around the globe. Track down Darkwater and take them out using a huge arsenal of weapons, vehicles, and gadgets! Expand and upgrade your loadout as you progress through the story, multiplayer, and challenge mode missions.
Just Cause: Mobile will be free on devices later this year.
This new game takes the Iconic franchise in an exciting new direction, delivering players a compelling and completely new experience through its blend of proprietary AR technology and modern art style. The beloved IP is among the highest-grossing game franchises of all time and a premier brand within the Square Enix group portfolio.
