By The Just Cause 4 Team

JUST CAUSE 4: Danger Rising is now available now to Gold Edition and Expansion Pass Owners on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. All other users can get their hands-on Danger Rising next week on September 5th.

Danger Rising is the final act to the “Dare Devils, Demons and Danger” expansion pass. It’s the biggest addition to JUST CAUSE 4 since launch, featuring 9 new missions, new exciting gadgets, weapons, vehicles and a whole new way to traverse the amazing open world of Solis.

Here’s a brief look at what to expect with Danger Rising:

The Hoverboard

The Agency is coming at Rico with full high-tech force, however, Rico also has an ace up his sleeve! Introducing the hoverboard, a brand new traversal tool that pushes Rico’s capabilities to a completely new level! Take the hoverboard over land or sea whilst performing gravity-defying tricks. Try experimenting and combining the board with grapple hook, parachute and wingsuit. It’s a perfect fit for exploring and getting around the Isle of Solís in style!

The Agency

The Agency is back and brings the full force of their advanced tech and highly trained Agents to bear in their hunt for Rico and Sheldon. Agents grapple across the terrain, just like Rico, and attack from all angles, wielding hard-hitting weaponry unlike anything seen in JUST CAUSE 4 before.

Danger Rising also introduces new weapons & vehicles to the crazy JUST CAUSE 4 sandbox world. Blast enemies with the ultra-powerful Sequoia 370 Mag-Slug, bend the laws of gravity with the Stormalong Em Zero magnesis rifle, or deploy your very own remote-controlled drone with the Yellowstone Auto Sniper Rifle.
