There’s a moment in the Just Cause 3 trailer above that, to me, so perfectly sums up why the game is so exciting. Our hero Rico rides a propane tank up in the air that he’s grappled himself to and shot once or twice. The push of the tank keeps him floating, and chaos ensues.

That, to me, is Just Cause in a nutshell. Absurdity rides in from all sides, and Avalanche’s game is all the better for it.

This trailer comes fresh from gamescom. It aired during the Xbox press conference, though the video and description make no indication that this is Xbox gameplay specifically.

Just Cause 3 is set to launch for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC platforms on Dec. 1, 2015. We’ll have more on the game as it comes.
