Xbox has unveiled Contraband, a new title set in the fictional 1970s Bayan world, known as a smuggler’s paradise. Because this game is an open-world cooperative game, it was developed in partnership with Avalanche Studios, perhaps best known for working in the Just Cause franchise. The Teaser trailer set for Steely Dan’s “Do It Again” gives us an idea of the tone the game is aiming for, but little else.
As mentioned earlier, Contraband is an open world collaboration title. You’ll get a glimpse of what the game will be like when the 1972 classic rock hits are played. The map spread out on the table gives you ideas for robbers who may play a role in the game. I don’t know what a “Sun River Job” is, but it seems that I will take out the fireproof safe from the private storage unit and make a big escape across the border. We can also get a glimpse of the fireproof vault mentioned above, indicating that work has already been done by the time this trailer is filmed. Another person is sitting in a chair and talking while repairing the getaway car.
You can see the trailer for yourself below.
If the Contraband looks and sounds just above the alley, it comes with your Xbox Series X / S and Windows 10 PCs and is set to appear on your Xbox Game Pass on the first day with support from Xbox Cloud Gaming. Check out our review here for our thoughts on the most fun Just Cause 4.
