Just Cause 4 is the latest installment in the series, released in 2018, and fans have been anticipating a new Just Cause story leading up to the next mainline game in the upcoming mobile game.
IGN’s review of Just Cause 4 gave it a score of 7.9/10 and stated: Compared to Just Cause 3, improvements are spread across its beautiful open world, but generally smaller. So blowing up yet another dictator’s army is the same kind of mindless explosive fun and physics-based comedy that the series is built on, but with a new weather system and fighting mods in combat. Not very useful for embedding. As a result, I was clearly left with a sense of “more of the same”. “
