The next installment of the 'Just Cause' franchise will unleash more chaos on the 4th of December 2018 on Xbox One, PC and Playstation 4. Rico Rodriguez will be on our screens once again in the location of Solis which is set in South America. It will be the series’ biggest world as there are four different biomes – rainforest, grassland, alpine and desert that gamers can explore throughout their Just Cause journey.  

Each biome will have its own extreme weather; the desert biome has sandstormsreducing your visibility but also making it more difficult to travel from A to B. The alpine region will have blizzards causing greater difficulty in survival. The grasslands will have tornadoes wreaking destruction in the environment but a cool side noteyou can drive up the tornado and shoot up into the air flying. Lastly, the rainforest will have lightning storms which could trigger explosions.  

Rico will be going up against a gang called the Black Hand and as he takes them down, through chaos and destruction in true Just Cause style, it will add to the power of his own allies – the Army of Chaos. Again, in the series’ true unique style the wingsuit, grappling hook and parachute will all return in Just Cause 4. The grappling hook is coming with customisable features and new functionality. For exampleyou can deploy boosters each time you throw the grappling hook line and you can switch between three functions and set it, so it is easier to switch between the three during combat. 

There’s a key change in the game where you don’t have to destroy all the red painted construction in a settlement – there will be different objectives for these settlements that are not necessarily tied to destruction, adding a different twist to the previous games. Of course, gamers will find a plethora of vehicles including fighter jets, sports cars and military helicopters.  

There are different versions of the game – the standard, deluxe and gold editions. 

The standard edition will include just the base game and the Deathstalker Scorpion pack which costs £54.99 

The deluxe edition will include the base game, the Deathstalker Scorpion pack and the digital deluxe content which costs £64.99 and if you pre-order you get early access to the game.  

Finally, the gold edition will include the base game, the Deathstalker Scorpion pack, the digital deluxe content, the expansion pass and the Golden Gear pack which, will set you back £79.99 and like the deluxe edition you can get early access to the game if you pre-order this edition.

Energy price increase set for the UK

Consumer regulator Ofgem has announced that the price cap on energy will increase on 1 April 2021 due to rising wholesale costs and growth in demand.

This means that a typical household on a default energy tariff could expect a bill increase of £96 per year.

This could affect around 11 million homes in England, Wales, and Scotland (Northern Ireland sets its own cap).

The cap for prepayment meter customers will increase by £87 per year, affecting around 4 million households.
