Avalanche Studios and Square Enix have revealed the latest batch of DLC coming to their open-world action title, Just Cause 4.
The new content sees a “return to the popular liberation gameplay of Just Cause 3,” and will “seamlessly” integrate into the Just Cause 4 sandbox world, adding new missions, weapons and equipment.
“Los Demonios is the second DLC pack in the ‘Dare Devils, Demons and Danger' Expansion Pass, and it brings a totally new experience to Just Cause 4,” said Avalanche Studios’ Creative Producer, Bryan Rodriguez.
“For the first time, Rico is tangling with an otherwordly threat that will push him to his limits. This is our chance to see if Rico is as good at squashing demons as he is at toppling dictators!”
As well as news of the new expansion, Square Enix also shared details of a large patch that went live yesterday as part of the game’s Spring Update.
The patch “completely changes” the in-game lighting, according to the publisher, improving the way it reacts to the environment. Also added were destructible bridges and statues and new chaos objects, plus a “dialled-up ‘heat’ system that will have the Black Hand challenging Rico like never before.”
Los Demonios is available to expansion pass holders and owners of the Gold Edition of the game on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC from 26 June, with everyone else getting access a week later.

Funcom and Petroglyph have released a new video looking at their upcoming RTS, Conan Unconquered.
It’s not just the strength of their walls players have to take into consideration, with disease also playing a major part in survival - if the bodies pile up too high, you could find a plague ravaging your armies.
Fire can also decimate a stronghold and there’s even the chance your food supplies might be poisoned, or your gold resources plundered.
To bolster their survival chances, players are able to call upon hero units, such as Conan himself, and even summon towering avatars that are capable of crushing both enemy and friendly units.
Conan Unconquered is out 30 May on PC.

Close to the Sun is out 2 May on PC via Epic Games Store with an RRP of €29.99 (or regional equivalent). Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions are scheduled to arrive later in the year.

The Game Bakers have rolled out a free update for their boss rush title, Furi, across all platforms.
One of the most notable new additions is Invincible Mode, which lets players skip a particularly tough boss fight or repeat a certain phase of an encounter to practice it. As the name suggests, you can also become immune to damage.
The mode is targeted at those who want to practice fights before attempting speed runs or players that want to better experience the game’s atmospheric setting and narrative.
“We’ve been listening to Furi’s community about the features and improvements that they were hoping for and we have been releasing some of those over the months in our Steam version,” said Audrey Leprince, co-founder of The Game Bakers.
“With the Freedom Update we’re happy to be able to share them with players regardless of the platform they play on.”
To celebrate the update’s launch, Furi is currently discounted by up to 70% on Switch, Xbox One and PC.
