Just Cause 2 launch trailer; Demo surpasses 2 million downloads

Square Enix have just unveiled the launch trailer for Just Cause 2 which you can catch after the break. As with the Metro 2033 trailer, the accompanying track is awesome, this time it’s Propane Nightmares by Pendulum.

Square have also announced that the demo has been a huge success for them with over 2 million downloads on 360, PS3 and PC.

Square’s PR gives some pretty awesome facts, “Players have driven a distance equivalent to a trip from the earth to the moon and back four times; Panau Island has lost almost 30 million of its population (with approximately 2.5 million headshots, almost a million drivers hurled from hijacked vehicles and 27,000 Piñata kills); and players have BASE jumped the equivalent of a freefall through the Earth’s core, pole-to-pole, twice.”

Pretty awesome, right? Just Cause 2 launches March 26th.

Just Cause 2 demo breaks 2m downloads

Since its launch on March 4th, the Just Cause 2 playable demo has taken the internet by storm, receiving well over 2 million downloads. In that time, players have driven a distance equivalent to a trip from the earth to the moon and back four times; Panau Island has lost almost 30 million of its population (with approximately 2.5 million headshots, almost a million drivers hurled from hijacked vehicles and 27,000 Piñata kills); and players have BASE jumped the equivalent of a freefall through the Earth’s core, pole-to-pole, twice.

Available on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC, the demo ranks as one of the largest playable sandbox demos of all time, featuring 35 square miles of Panauan playground in which to cause complete chaos. The stunning Lautan Lama Desert setting plays backdrop to an adrenaline-fuelled and action-packed play test, featuring an astonishing amount of activities for the player, including numerous towns, villages and military bases to explore, military assassinations and air races, culminating in one explosive mission from the full game.

As Rico Rodriguez, the Agency’s most powerful weapon, players must take on the island of Panau and its military regime in order to track down Rico’s former boss and mentor, Tom Sheldon, who has gone rogue with millions in Agency cash and intel. Using a unique grapple and parachute combination, there is no vertical limit as the air becomes your playground: grapple a passing plane in flight, hijack helicopters, BASE jump from the tallest buildings or mountains and leave a trail of chaos and destruction in your wake. Just Cause 2 offers players the freedom to tackle missions any way they choose and, with over 100 vehicles and countless upgrades and collectibles, the choices for relentless adrenaline-fuelled action are limitless.

Just Cause 2 will be available for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Games for Windows® and will be released under the EIDOS brand portfolio. All formats will release in-stores from March 23rd, 2010, in North America and March 26th, 2010, in Europe, Middle East, and Australasia.
