Just Cause 3 Screenshots For Looking At

By Graham Smith on December 15th, 2014.

We don’t often post about screenshot releases, because there’s always a trailer that shows more, with less of likelihood of each frame having been doctored in Photoshop before release. Just Cause is the kind of series though where half the fun comes from how pretty it looks and the other half comes from tethering guards to rockets and standing astride vehicles as they launch over cliffs. These Just Cause 3 screenshots show a bit of both – and are obviously carefully posed – but I like to look at them.

Maybe you will also enjoy looking at them? You can click to make each one bigger.

Just Cause 3’s Probably-Not-Maybe Multiplayer

By Alice O'Connor on November 18th, 2014.

Plane-o.

Will Just Cause 3 have multiplayer? Just Cause 2‘s wonky-but-ace Multiplayer Mod showed that – surprise surprise – running and driving and flying and grappling-hooking and exploding all around an open world with your chums can be pretty fun. An actual, proper, made-with-access-to-the-source-code multiplayer mode could be something special. But Just Cause 3 won’t have one, Avalanche Studios have said. Probably. At this point of the game’s marketing campaign, it’s hard to tell how much of this is a firm declaration, how much is uncertainty, and how much is The Official Marketing Line. Don’t get your hopes up, in short. But maybe don’t be surprised. Oh, I don’t know!

No Cause For Concern: No Just Cause 3 Microtransactions

By Graham Smith on November 12th, 2014.

Only DLC on the list of things people hate, so far.

When Just Cause 3 was announced yesterday, Square Enix said that it was a “full price title”, causing speculation that earlier fears about the game containing microtransactions were unfounded. Now developers Avalanche have confirmed it in a post on their own site: “It does not feature in-game micro transactions.”

Yep. Confirmation that the speculation about the earlier speculation being false is true.

Grapple Of My Eye: Just Cause 3 Announced

By Adam Smith on November 11th, 2014.

Just Cause 2 is a game about gravity and grappling hooks. It’s what happens when Grand Theft Auto and Far Cry hook up, and make Saints Row the godfather to their bastard child. The child is baptised in a font of flame that is kicked out of a helicopter and parachutes onto the burning wing of a plane that is tethered to a lorry that is driving off a cliff while somebody stands on its roof adopting a surfer pose while shooting rockets at the moon.

A sequel has just been announced. I sincerely hope I can fire my grappling hook into the moon and swing it at my enemies like a big ol’ wrecking ball. Details below.

Just Cause 3 Ready To Explode?

By Jim Rossignol on October 27th, 2011.

Not looking!
VG247 has word that Avalanche are (reportedly) working on Just Cause 3. Which is both pleasing and disappointing at the same time. Pleasing because, hey, the last Standing Not Looking At Explosions Simulator was pretty ace, and disappointing because I had sort of hoped that the awesome Avalanche team might try and do something else open-worldy, rather than revisiting the island-busting stunt-murderer.
