Phew, Just Cause 3 Won't Have Micro-Transactions

I can't blame people on the internet for thinking that Just Cause 3 was set to have free-to-play style micro transactions. I mean honestly.

It's not like micro transactions in full-priced games isn't a thing. It's totally a thing. There's that and there's also the above screenshot, a screenshot that totally features micro transactions for Just Cause 3. So yeah, I can't blame people for thinking Just Cause 3 was going to have micro transactions. But thankfully, it won't.

Christofer Sundberg, Co-founder and Chief Creative Officer of Avalanche Studios posted a blog on Avalanche's website to address the rumours.

"To be perfectly clear: Just Cause 3 will be available in 2015 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC,"he wrote. It will be distributed as a retail box and digital download. It is not a Free To Play game. It does not feature in-game micro transactions."

And also:

"Those leaked screenshots were taken from an ancient version of Just Cause 3. Like most games, this one went through an exploratory phase where we looked at different control schemes, different technologies, different business models. Those leaked screenshots show aspects of that process, and in no way reflect the game we are making today."

So Just Cause 3 won't have Micro Transactions, that's been confirmed, but Sundberg also wanted to make it clear that Just Cause 3 won't be a static piece of content on a disc. It will evolve and change.

"Beyond launch, we are likely to look into DLC packs and items as part of our ambition to support Just Cause 3 and its players for many years to come, but until that time we’re completely focused on making the best Just Cause game we possibly can. Rest assured it will be a huge, fully packed and extremely rewarding experience right out of the gate."



    "there’s also the above screenshot, a screenshot that totally features micro transactions for Just Cause 3"

    What screenshot? I only see a title pic, which honestly looks like concept art to me and doesn't have anything related to micro-transactions in it that I can see :/

        Fair enough. The article would've made sense if they bothered to provide that link :P

    JC2 had plenty of DLC for it, ranging from guns to vehicles etc. It was all fine and functional and added little bits to the game which I STILL play heartily to this day especially the multiplayer. Hope they build in a solid MP game into 3!

    They have said they are concentrating on single player which is fine but after the success of multiplayer mods on PC I would really, really, REALLY like to see massive multiplayer mode on the console versions.

    I would like to reiterate REALLY.

      jc2mp was a success during the build process because every couple of weeks they ran tests and there were like 1000+ ppl on at once. Once they released the server it's hard to find a local game with more than 100 people, which kind of killed it for me.

      As far as JC3 goes I'd be happy with massive open world sp game, wing suits goddammit please.
