Just Cause Demo Dated

Only hours after our news story that a Just Cause demo was rumoured to be on course for a August 24 release date via Xbox Live Marketplace, the game’s developers at Avalanche Studios have confirmed this drop date on their official site! With the release date for the retail version of the game is set for the 22 September this gives gamers a full month to enjoy everything the demo has to offer.

Just Cause is set on a fictional South American tropical island called “San Esperito”, where the player works as CIA black ops agent Rico Rodriguez in a guerrilla war to overthrow San Esperito’s dictator, who may be in possesion of weapons of mass destruction. The game draws its premise (and name) from the real-life United States invasion of Panama, code-named “Operation Just Cause”, which involved United States military action to overthrow military leader Manuel Noriega.
