JC2MP Creators Cancel Just Cause 3 Multiplayer Mod

What?! Didn’t Alice report just a few days ago that the Just Cause 3 Multiplayer mod was coming along nicely? Yes, but that was a different Just Cause 3 multiplayer mod. The one that’s been cancelled is the one that was being made by the developers of the popular, trendsetting JC2MP. Although it might not all be bad news: its primary developer has gone to work for Just Cause creators Avalanche.

Just Cause 3 Multiplayer Mod Coming Along Nicely

The multiplayer mod for Just Cause 2 is a ridiculous and special thing, partially for the accomplishment of fans adding multiplayer to a game not made for it and partially for the sight of hundreds of players flying, driving, parachuting, and exploding all over Panau. Mod team Nanos are working on a multiplayer mod for Just Cause 3 and, judging by a new wee video, it’s coming along quite nicely. Observe, a few folks parachuting and wingsuiting around together:

Just Cause 3 New DLC Dated, Adds Mechs & Gravity Gun

Never one for the conservative approach, Just Cause 3 [official site] is getting another batch of ostentatious DLC that’ll see protagonist Rico Rodriguez pilot powerful mechs and get to grips with an antigravity gun.

Mech Land Assault follows the Sky Fortress DLC expansion and marks the game’s second offering of additional content. Publisher Square Enix have now announced it’ll launch on June 3 (this Friday) for Season Pass holders, and June 10 for everyone else. Its big features include:

Game Box Art Recreated With Cute Japanese Stock Art

I don’t know what a ‘meme’ is anymore. First they used them for science, then memes escaped a lab as a virus in a monkey, then Internet turned the viruses into jokes, and then the virus infected every other form of joke. (I think, at this point, we’re either safe or have ourselves become memes?)

All I know for certain is that delightful recreations of video game box art using cheery stock art have recently filled my corner of the Internet, and I think you might like them.

Just Cause 3 Patch Cutting Load Times Ahead Of DLC

Just Cause 3 [official site] will be ready to blast off with a cracking-looking rocketpack in the Sky Fortress DLC on March 8th, Square Enix announced today, though only folks who pay for all the DLC up-front in the Season Pass will get to play then. Folks who’d buy it separately will need to wait until the 15th.

On the bright side, a free update is coming for all and sundry tomorrow, bringing performance improvements, faster load times, and more fine things.

Just Cause 3 DLC Pretty Much Adding An Iron Man Suit

You know those bits in the Iron Man movies where Timmy Stark rockets up into the sky then does fancy barrel rolls dodging missiles while blasting his shoulderguns? Great, aren’t they? Our lad Rico Rodriguez is getting into that game too, as publishers Square Enix have announced that the first big Just Cause 3 [official site] DLC pack is adding what is, pretty much, an Iron Man suit. (Without all the armour – Rico likes his chest hair rippling in the wind, you know.) Observe these antics:

Frustrated Pirates Prophesise The Death Of Game Piracy

And on that bombshell

My eyebrow’s raised so high that it’s knocking plaster off the ceiling, but it’s worth sharing this oddity as a talking point if nothing else. It seems Just Cause 3 [official site]’s DRM is still presenting stiff competition to crackers over a month on from release, prompting one pirate collective to predict that we are in the game piracy end times. “According to current trends in the development of encryption technology, in two years time I’m afraid there will be no free games to play in the world.”
