Character Breakdown: Just Cause 3 Introduces New Rico

The makers of Just Cause 3 [official site] are letting out a steady trickle of info, which means no longer will you need to search month-old E3 footage for sweet hype to suckle.

The first of five dev diary videos has just released, which gives you a closer look at protagonist Rico Rodriguez. That means who he is, what his skills and abilities are, and how he fits in to the franchise.

“He’s gotten older,” game director Roland Lesterlin says in the video from his face, “he’s got his scars from his years in Panau and San Esperito. We wanted to give him that background. What would it be like if you set off a nuke? Twice?”

Rico’s been the franchise’s main guy since its launch, starting things out as an operative only to leave the agency by the time of the events in Just Cause 3. Rico returns to his home on a fictional island but poor dude can’t catch a break because it’s run by an evil dictator.

Adam had a hands on with the game just last month, calling it “exciting and exhausting.”

“It’s a cartoon, a glorious slapstick world in which collapsing buildings somehow seem consequence-free, and Fast and Furious seems like the kind of thing that’d be written on the roadsigns,” he writes. Take a look at it in action below:
