Ever wanted an insight into the mind of walking disaster zone Rico Rodriguez, protagonist of of the Just Cause series of games? A new teaser for Just Cause 3 offers just that, and is understandably called “Firestarter”.
Now, as a teaser it offers a total of zero insights into gameplay (beyond showing the wingsuit previously mentioned). What it does show however is Rico’s thought process – things catching fire and blowing up; sometimes, things crashing, while on fire, usually with some blowing up to follow; occasionally objects destroyed by flames before they can explode. You get the idea.
Now, normally I’d watch a teaser, nod quietly at the concept and then move on until some gameplay is on offer too. But… I did get caught on the soundtrack, a trip hop cover of Prodigy’s Firestarter which replaces Keith Flint’s anger with some ironically calm vocals.
He finds calm in the destruction. That’s kind of scary…
Just Cause 3 is due for release later this year.
