The trailer opens in live action, with a guy in a hoodie walking down a busy urban backstreet - which appears to be in the middle of New York City. They are using full CGI-style animation for that game, which means it may be a while before it comes out. This bundle will be available exclusively from the Square Enix store.

Since "Just Cause 4" provides a follow-up plot to the events of "Just Cause 3", players can also expect to see Black Hand return.

What did you guys think?

Square Enix this year confirmed that its pre-show E3 briefing will begin on Monday, June 11 at 10am PT / 1pm ET / 6pm BST / 7pm CEST.

Another new title announced during the stream was A Quiet Man. Before any of the hoodlums knew what was going on, one of them was laid out on the ground. Hopefully, Avalanche Studios has improved this game over the criticisms of the last one, but we can only wait and see.

The best part is that the game will be free and will launch on the 26th of June 2018 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. They also promised more details sometime in 2018, so E3 2018 would be the ideal time to share those details.

Those aren't the only no shows at E3 2018.

The game's website is up and gives a few more details.
