Something to look forward to: With the first E3 press event starting tomorrow, we’re almost out of time for pre-conference game reveals. But one title that was already rumored to appear at the event has just had its existence confirmed by Steam: Just Cause 4.
The fourth entry in the long-running Just Cause series was one of the many unannounced games that appeared on the Walmart Canada website last month. Now, a Steam ad promoting the game has been discovered by Kotaku.
Although the advertisement for Just Cause 4 does include a ‘pre-purchase now’ banner and an option to ‘click for details,’ it seems the game isn’t quite ready to be fully revealed. Clicking for extra details didn’t take users to a Just Cause 4 store page; it just redirected them to Steam’s front page. It also appears that the ad has now been removed.
It seems an almost certainty that Just Cause 4 will be officially revealed at publisher Square Enix’s E3 press conference, which takes place on Monday June 11 at 10 AM PDT/1 PM ET. The ad doesn’t really tell us anything about the game, other than it once again features Rico Rodrigeuz, who is looking out onto a stormy jungle.
Just Cause 4 is the latest title from the Walmart leak to be confirmed. After Bethesda sent out a jokey tweet mocking the Rage 2 page, the gaming giant officially announced the post-apocalyptic title a few days later. A new Assassin’s Creed and Lego DC Super Villains have also been verified, though we’re still waiting to hear about a new Splinter Cell, Borderlands 3, Gears of War 5, and Dragon Quest 2, but expect at least some of these to appear at E3.
