Just Cause 4 is an insane game, filled with plenty of ridiculous mechanics, like creating a tornado. As such, it isn’t surprising that the newly released action title has lots of interesting secrets hidden and easter eggs inside it, just like past installments.
Here are the easter eggs we have found so far in our time with Just Cause 4. Possible spoilers below!
Getting Over It
One of the most unique releases of 2017, Getting Over It with Bennett Foddy had players jump inside of a cauldron and attempt to navigate a difficult course, using nothing but a pick ax and physics. The best – and most frustrating – part about the game is that its creator, Bennet Foddy, narrated the entire thing.
Not only did Just Cause 4 include an entire mini-game for Getting Over It, which can be found above the middle of Hanasacha and Picos Helados, they even got Foddy to narrate the quick Easter egg.
Everyone’s favorite license plates are back in Just Cause 4, as the creators of the game decided to leave their mark once again.
First seen in Just Cause 3, developer Avalanche studios created in-game motor vehicle plates that spell out “4VAL NCH.” The tag is shorthand for Avalanche and can be found on multiple different vehicles.
Cards of Chaos
During the first mission of Just Cause 4, a pile of cards can be found lying on the table near the door of Mira’s apartment. A close inspection reveals that the back of each card brandishes a picture of a scorpion.
Similar to previous games in the series, the scorpion is the symbol of Chaos. Chaos is the basis for the progression system and skill points for Just Cause 2, Just Cause 3 and Just Cause 4, simply known as Chaos points.
Ride of the Valkyries
It wouldn’t be a Just Cause game if “Ride of the Valkyries” wasn’t present.
Just like in the second and third title in the series, Just Cause 4 once again features the operatic piece, referencing the movie “Apocalypse Now,” which holds a heavy influence over the series.
The song can be heard in Just Cause 4 while Rico is riding in a helicopter, as the protagonist starts to sing it.
Mile High Club
Alongside having a promiscuous name, Mile High Club was a significant area in Just Cause 2. It was predominantly a night-club and brothel that operates directly on an airship, also playing a part in each game’s story.
In Just Cause 4, players can find a more tame, grounded (literally) version of the Mile High Club, located just to the west of Villanueva.
If you travel to the north-east region of Delta Río Wanay, you may stumble upon an oftly familiar looking abandoned enclosure. Inside the facility, there is a guard tower that features a sign of someone being eaten by a dinosaur.
This broken enclosure and sign is a nod to the widely popular film franchise, Jurassic Park. Maybe that means we will see a T-Rex in a future Just Cause game?
That is every Easter egg we have found in Just Cause 4 so far. We will be sure to update them as we find them.
