Avalanche Studios, the independent AAA games developer based in Stockholm, has announced that Just Cause 3 will ship during "holiday 2015."

The Just Cause 3 release date was announced at the end of a new CG trailer, which features a cover of the Prodigy's '90s hit song Firestarter, set to slow-mo images of explosions.

GameSpot now has fresh details of the game, taken from a recent preview event, and outlines some new elements to the game, such as the option to tether three items together at once using the grapple hook.

Just Cause 3 is in development for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. It features a 400 square-mile map, split into three main areas that are available to explore from the onset.

Throughout the game, you encounter enemy bases, propaganda billboards, and loudspeakers, which you must destroy in order to "capture" the area. Doing so means you're able to fast travel and save vehicles there.

In the gallery below, hero Rico Rodriguez can be seen skydiving with a wingsuit, tethering himself to an attack chopper, and commandeering a fighter jet. The images also flaunt the game's sun-kissed locations and depth of explosion effects.
