Sky Fortress Ahoy: Just Cause 3’s Patch & DLC Plans

Open-world explore 'n' explode 'em up Just Cause 3 [official site] has been out for a month now (it's pretty great!) and the most exciting news around is surely that a multiplayer mod is coming from the JC2MP folks. All the game's actual creators, Avalanche Studios, have to talk about is future patches and DLC plans. Pssh. Sure, yeah, I bet your performance boosts are…

Just Cause 3 Multiplayer Mod In The Works

When I received definitive confirmation that Just Cause 3 [official site] wouldn't have any multiplayer support out of the box, I felt like I'd been punched in the gut. If memory serves, I was talking to one of the game's producers at the time so it's entirely possible that I left the room wincing, with a wounded expression on my face. Later in the day,…

Just Cause 3’s Patch Will Take “A Little Bit Of Time”

I've no doubt that Avalanche and Square Enix are well aware of what happened to Warner with Batman: Arkham Knight, which is why they're taking a chummier approach to launch issues with Just Cause 3. The open world being-a-cool-guy sequel is beleaguered by visual glitches and wayward performance, and an AMD beta driver hasn't fixed the issue for everyone. A wider fix will, Avalanche have…

Glitchy Just Cause 3? AMD Video Card? Try Beta Drivers

Just Cause 3 [official site] is pretty great, you might've heard our man John Walker say. He's been all over the parachuting, wingsuiting, exploding, exploring, and kissing a cow (we've all coughed politely and pretended our phones were ringing every time he mentioned the cow-kissing - boy has he ever mentioned the cow-kissing!), but some folks with AMD/ATI video cards are suffering graphical glitches. They're…

Just Cause 3’s Launch Trailer Brings Explosions

'Nerdcore' is that thing where people make rap songs but they're bad at rapping and their songs are bad but the lyrics are about video games and movies from when you were young so it must be cool, yeah? If Kieron were still around, he might drop some musical science from a great height here, by which I mean make such a brazen declaration and…

Just Cause 3 Dev Video Takes You Backstage

Game series like Just Cause are a bit like Hollywood action movies. In order to be completely absorbed by their flash and pizzazz and glitz and glamour, we suspend our trust in common sense just a little, just enough, to allow ourselves to take it all in. Getting a sneak peak behind the illusory velvet rope can take away some of this majesty, but also…

Just Cause 3 Is On A Mission For Demolition

I've hardly moved from behind my desk this week, but I just cannot get enough of flying. To my delight this afternoon ushers in more of the same courtesy of Just Cause 3 [official site] as it propels us head-first into its latest trailer, dubbed 'On A Mission', in all its wingsuit-wearing, parachute-popping, South-American dictator-detracting glory. There's tanks, flash cars, ridiculous physics, and about a…

Where ‘Splosions Come From: Just Cause 3 Dev Vid

You know how Just Cause 3 [official site] has all those huge explosions which destroy vehicles and buildings and everything? Well, you may be surprised to learn that developers Avalanche Studios have actually not created a teeny little diorama of model village houses and firecrackers inside your seeing box. Instead, they use a modern gadget known as a 'computer' to... ah... I think they record…

Explosions Galore: Just Cause 3 Gameplay Trailer

"Stop hitting yourself!" I can imagine Just Cause 3's [official site] demolition man Rico giggling as he uses his destruc-o-physics tether lines to force a giant statue to demolish itself with a mighty open-handed slap to the face.

Just ‘Cause: Grand Theft Auto V Grappling Hook Mod

As cool ways to get around go, grappling hooks are up there with skateboards and motorbikes. Unlike boards and bikes, however, the super-rad accidents grappling hooks cause won't have you lose significant patches of your skin. Not your own, anyway.You can now grapple around San Andreas to your hearts' content in Just Cause 2 style, swinging to buildings and tying vehicles together, thanks to a…

It’s Rico Time: Just Cause 3’s Spectacular Reveal Trailer

Watching the “gameplay reveal” trailer for Just Cause 3 is like watching the ambitions of every guns, vehicles and explosions game made real. It's the ludicrously overblown action blockbuster that Uncharted's scripted events and cutscenes invoke. It's Far Cry with the stabilisers taken off. GTA V with many of the best mods you can imagine included as standard. It has sunk its grapple hook into…

So Let’s Take Our Mind Off Things With Just Cause 3

It's... a funny old day. Big stuff, big response, not entirely sure how to feel about it all, no clue what happens next. Personally, I'm going to try and take my mind off it. This first glimpse at the don't worry about a thing mayhem of Just Cause 3 [official site] is probably an OK way to do that, for a few seconds at least.

Just Cause 3 Screenshots For Looking At

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…

Just Cause 3’s Probably-Not-Maybe Multiplayer

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…

No Cause For Concern: No Just Cause 3 Microtransactions

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.
