Like, on Thursday*. Yes, the official website for Just Cause 2 (www.justcause.com (http://www.justcause.com)) will finally launch onto the internets this week!*

**UPDATE**

Due to a last minute technical hitch caused by a couple of gremlins that snuck in over night, the site will now go live on Monday 17th August at 2pm GMT. Sorry chaps, but I'm going to be adding extra goodies to its pages in the meantime to make up for it.

As we head towards release, JustCause.com will be the main resource for all the latest news and information on the game - including the latest screenshots, videos and announcements, along with exclusive behind-the-scenes features and awesome new content such as developer blogs, interviews, videos, podcasts and more. If it’s Rico-flavoured, it’ll be there. We hope you will too.

We’ll also be adding plenty more features to the site as we go, making it the essential companion to your game experience. Explore the tropical island of Panau and fully prepare yourself for the chaos that awaits you prior to the game launch, and then after that, take your experience to terrifying new heights with our in-depth game stats drastically changing the way you play the game. Though more on that a little later.

All this and I’ve barely mentioned you guys, the Community. JustCause.com serves as the central nervous system of the Just Cause 2 community, incorporating these official forums and offering opportunities for you to get involved in a vast amount of ways. Whether it’s speaking directly to the team working on the game, bickering with your community manager (!) or entering once in a lifetime competitions (no, really), you’ll never be short of things to do between grabbing the latest game news and updates, and chatting with others.

So mark it down on your calendars, this Thursday* JustCause.com goes live and its gonna be a doozy. Be sure to drop by and sign yourself up. We’ve literally so much planned and we don’t want you to miss out.

Love,
The Just Cause 2 Team.



*See UPDATE, we goofed. Lol.

Keir/mycoldman - any chance that the release date will be announced when the site launches, or maybe at GamesCom in a few weeks?

Oh site is up on Monday? :( Ah well drop us some goodies instead Mike ;)

PoorBison
12th Aug 2009, 11:14
Ah well, the extra goodies will more than make up for this small delay!

Oh and, while you are here mycoldman, I was wondering if perhaps you could shed some light in regard to the situation about the Stirling STL-3 Octavio plane in Just Cause! I'm not sure if you are aware of the fairly major following it got from its mention in the game guide, and appearance in some screenshots, but a whole load of people were searching for it! Apparently it was removed from the game, but what have you to say about any such inclusion of it in Just Cause 2? Are there any plans that you know of?

Just checkin' :)

mycoldman
12th Aug 2009, 11:59
Ah the Octavio! :)

I do hope we've not seen the last of that. Rest assured at this point, on vehicles alone - Just Cause 2 gives you plenty to get excited about.

12th Aug 2009, 13:33
I wouldn't expect such an announcement oat GamesCom i'm afraid. I would however, be expecting other goodies...

Thank you, my good man!

...not knowing a definitive release date for this BEAST of a game is killing me, however!! :nut:

*sheepishly walks in, head low*

Hey guys, it looks like I've some bad news - though nothing life threatening. It just looks as though the Just Cause 2 website won't actually be hitting the internet quite when we planned. :S Instead it's likely to now go live tomorrow... but I'm dmaned if I'm gonna build you up and put a definite on that. I'm sorry. We're working round the clock to iron out the creases, and it'll be more than worth the wait when it finally arrives... tomorrow (see I've done it again!).

Hang in there, chaps. I'll keep you posted on here as much as I can. Or if you're more the twitter type, you can follow me behind the scenes here (http://twitter.com/mycoldman)*

*Though i make no apologies for my inane ramblings.

No worries! We can wait for this website for as long as it takes, any day before Friday would suit us all, I'm sure.

Any day after, and you can meet what we call an angry mob! :p

2010

Shhhh...

2010 is going to be an absolute killer for my wallet next year, there are so many games coming in each season, it's just mind blowing that it could potentially top 2007 as a golden year for gaming. I also doubt 2010 is going to clinch some of the people's thirst here, they will try and soak up any information they can get and I don't blame them :p I am looking forward to the next press release for this however, the more information the merrier.

Hopefully today will be the day for this website to unleash some magic

Having been waiting for JC2 ever since number 1, i have regulary visited these forums, and having checked out this new 'Visit Panau' trailer, theres 1 image that excites me. Its about 8 seconds in, where the ski lift is heading up from 1 station to the next, and in the far backdrop you can see a small city centre.

This image however makes me wish skiing was apart of the game, how cool that would be.

But still, minus the red highlighting of opponents when being shot at, this will rock most gamers worlds.

we have no set date for release at this time other than the already stated early 2010. The second we're ready to make an official announcement of the date, I'll be shouting it from just about everywhere.

There's a lot of things that can effect the date, and at the moment our focus is making the best damn game possible.

Rest assured though, you'll not have too much longer to wait.

I think it would be good if Just Cause 2 was perfect, because then for Just Cause 3 they don't have to much work on improving the previous one, they only have to add new features and a few upgrades and will have much more time to do so.
