Square Enix Announces Just Cause 3

Square Enix Announces Just Cause 3

Just Cause 3 is official -- a third game in Avalanche's open-world action/adventure series will come to PS4, Xbox One and PC next year, Square Enix announced today.

Game Informer has the official Just Cause 3 announcement as part of their December cover story, which will go live for digital subscribers later today.

This official announcement comes in the wake of some early leaked screenshots from Just Cause 3 that hinted at a game with at least some form of micro-transactions. Game Informer reports that this third Just Cause will be a full retail game (aka: $US60, available at GameStop), though we don't yet know if it will also feature any sort of micropayment system.


    Oh, man. That's so cool! Just Cause 2 was an incredibly addictive (and utterly massive) game.

    Let's hope they refine it and make it more interesting.

      That would be too much interesting. JC2 is my go-to game for mindlessly messing around, I can play whole days at a time, and I'm wayyyy past 100% completion. Any more interesting and I'll fear for my personal safety

        There's something about this game that makes me not love it. I can't put my finger on it.

          I'm the same, I think it's the weapon's lack of satisfaction. Something about firing them just doesn't feel quite right. I may have to give it another go, if it eventually clicks I'll love it, but so far no luck :(

            Multi-player is fun, but still lacks something to.
            The multi-player would be amazing if you cold turn off scanners and name tags.

              There's too many servers for such a big map, so it ends up being so empty. It's not really an easy issue to fix, but I hope they find a way, maybe an official server and user hosted servers as an option?

            I feel the game needs auto aim - it's too much coordination having to grapple from point to point and at the same time aim your gun - also the guns need to be more powerful - the enemies in JC2 were bullet sponges and yeah Multiplayer needs to be a standard feature

    Didn't anyone else here read the word 'microtransactions'?

      That what I was thinking. Everyone else glossed over that apparently.

        Probably because it's listed only as a rumour, and is false. Avalanche's followup:

        "To be perfectly clear: Just Cause 3 will be available in 2015 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC. 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." - Christofer Sundberg

          I do really hope this is the case, whilst Christofer Sundberg states there isn't any microtransactions... things can change, especially if the publisher wants to push the game in a certain direction...

          Even though the leaked screens are rough around the edges, the UI did look like it has had some work put into it, so it certainly could have been something on their minds.

      If I'd seen that word in some kind of context such as a sentence that starts with "It has been confirmed that Just Cause 3 will contain..." then I'd be annoyed. RIght now I'm just happy it's coming out - there's plenty of time to be pissed off about that later if/when it gets confirmed.

      In JC2 there was a black market where you could buy weapons and vehicles but with dollars you earned in game - I assumed the screenshot was showing this

    No multiplayer, no buy.

      I had a lot of fun with JC1 & 2 single player, but yeah, if they don't have official multi this time around they're really shooting themselves in the foot. JC2MP was/is amazing fun.

        Yep- I might buy it either way but official mulitplayer would be the shit.

    my favourite part of just cause 2 was when you'd been gliding on the parachute for a really long time, and it started playing that really mellow mariachi guitar as a soundtrack - so awesome
