The answer to that question, folks, is "no". Unless you managed to acquire a copy via a retailer that's broken the game's street date, in which case, good news everybody! And by everybody, I mean those people who are playing Just Cause 3 right now. You know who you are.
Developer Avalanche, who I'm sure is well aware the early user reviews can sink a game these days, has decided not to hold back on the Just Cause 3 patch front, despite the title's official release date being 1 December.
Instead, it'll have an update out "within the next 24 hours" for all three platforms: Xbox One, PC and PS4.
