The last Just Cause 3 dev diary is here, taking a look at the tech behind the game: the Avalanche engine.

Linus Blomberg, CTO at Avalanche Studios said that “The ability to create a world of this density, complexity and size – that alone is something that makes the Avalanche Engine stand out,” and this video definitely proves his point. They talk about the combination of mechanics the engine allows for, procedural destruction models, and enemy AI behaviours – all fascinating insight into how this game ticks.

You won’t have long to wait before you can play it; Just Cause 3 launches for high end PCs, Xbox One and PlayStation Four on December l. Watch the first sixty minutes of the game here.
