We are less than one month away from the release date of Just Cause 3, an open world action-adventure game that is planning on giving you more bang for your buck.  When the trailers for the game first appeared, it looked like what you could find in a Michael Bay film, but it insisted that all the action and explosions were part of the gameplay.  If you have your mind set to purchase this game, this is what to know about the Season Pass and Special Editions before you pre-order. 

Just Cause 3 is about a hero named Rico Rodriguez who is trying to stop a dictator name General Di Ravello, who rules a fictional Mediterranean island known as Medici. The game has an open world of about 400 square miles, which is equal to the game's predecessor. What makes this game different is the vertical feature, as Rico can use a new wingsuit to take to the air on certain occasions, which makes the open world even more open. In addition to the wingsuit, Rico can use another new feature of "infinite C4". Instead of paying for this explosive all the time like in Just Cause 2, Rico can apparently explode things at will.

According to Gotta Be Mobile, there are actually a few versions of Just Cause 3 that you can purchase.  For example, it is available on the Xbox Store and PlayStation Network as a digital version for about $59.99. 

The Day One Edition costs $59.99, and includes 3 vehicles that the developer, Avalanche Studio, has equipped with weapons for use in the game.  The first is the Mugello Delphino GLF, a speedboat with two mini-guns attached, the second is the Urga Pocoma X4 Buggy which also has machine guns, and the third is a Kerner Serpente R12 ground vehicle equipped with rocket launchers. 

As for the Just Cause 3 Collector's Edition, it is made for the die hard fans available on Gamestop and Amazon for $119.99.  Along with the game is an art book that details the game's concepts and original version, as well as a 24 x 24 inch map with directions and details of the entire island of Medici.  Then there is a grappling hook on a stand that is inspired by the hook that is used in the game. 

In addition to these editions, you can also get some exclusive extras made for the fans.  The Gamestop Day One edition includes a capstone RPG weapons.  The Xbox Store has a free downloadable copy of Just Cause 2 with ever digital pre-order, and there is a similar offer from Best Buy.  The PlayStation Store has a free Just Cause 3 theme for the PS4 as well as a Final Argument Sniper Rifle for the digital buyers. 

Many players will also want to purchase the Season Pass, which costs about $24.99 and has 3 different add-on packs.  What is interesting of this Season Pass is it has three separate waves known as Air, Sea, and Land.  When the Downloadable Content (DLC) is released, there will be new missions, weapons, and enemies. 

Just Cause 3 is available on December 1, 2015 for Microsoft Windows, the Xbox One, and the PlayStation 4.
