Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Nope, it’s Rico Rodriguez, soaring through the skies in…wait for it…JUST CAUSE 3! (http://eu.square-enix.com/en/blog/just-cause-3-here-0) (Official SE blog)


Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Nope, it’s Rico Rodriguez, soaring through the skies in…wait for it…JUST CAUSE 3! The Just Cause series has always been known for giving players the tools and freedom to unleash their creativity and wreak havoc across the world in ways that other games cannot match. With Just Cause 3, the team at Avalanche Studios are pushing that crazy sandbox action to a whole other level, giving you more toys to play with, more ways to cause chaos, and more beautiful open world to discover than ever before.
Set in the sun-drenched Mediterranean island republic of Medici, a land crumbling under the ruthless rule of General Di Ravello, you take control of series’ hero Rico Rodriguez, a man on a mission to liberate his homeland and the people of Medici…by any means necessary. Armed with his classic grapple hook and parachute, weapons and vehicles galore, and with a whole bunch of new tricks up his sleeve (just wait until you see his Wingsuit…), Rico is a one-way ticket to creating the most over-the-top action moments you can possibly imagine!
If that’s not enough to get you excited, the reveal article in Game Informe (http://bit.ly/1zJPgt1)r is going to tell you and, more importantly show you, what ‘by any means necessary’ looks like. So head to their page here or pick up a copy of the magazine to see it all for yourself.
Just Cause 3 will be arriving on PS4, Xbox One and PCs in 2015, so you’ll be hearing plenty more from us next year. You can follow Just Cause on Facebook and Twitter, where I’ll be answering questions and revealing more info as we go. If you want to be the first to know on all the latest goings on in the world of Just Cause 3, you can also subscribe to JC newsletter here. (http://bit.ly/1yvvoG0)
For the really eager souls out there, we’ve also opened up pre-orders over at the SE Store here (http://bit.ly/1Eyb4aQ).

Hello! :) If you have any questions about JC3, please ask away! :)

Yes I have a few question regarding the general game play.

In JC2, besides creating chaos, there was allot (too much) focus on chasing after a quadrillion of small shiny white boxes and etc.
Imo this was very tedious/annoying so is this part of the game play implemented in JC3 as well, or have you removed it?

Then I would like to know about chaos/propaganda/demoralizing effects and etc.

In JC2 it doesn't matter how much chaos you create/how many propaganda trailers you destroy/how many military bases you destroy,
you won't notice any difference. Is there any changes to that in JC3?

Hi!

We have included a wider variety of missions that also tie to new tools and game mechanics. So hopefully, you won't find it as tedious.

I cannot reveal much as the main JC3 campaign kicks in next year when we will have a lot of gameplay videos, events and also streaming sessions as a lot of stuff is still WIP now. But I can say that your activities will have a larger impact on the world around you and on the story.

Personally I love collections missions. One of the beautiful thing about the 300 Chaos Items in JC2 was that it gave you more reasons to really delve deep into exploration of the stunning world of Panau. Another thing I love still about the collections in the game was that they appeared on the map. Seriously, guys, please add TONS of collectibles in this game! :)

@ChiroVette you don't need shiny boxes to explore the world and in JC2 most of the boxes were in settlements or military bases anyway.

I love collections in sandbox games, and I think most people do as well. One thing I would request, though, would be to PLEASE give us some serious rewards. lol It was a huge let down the first time through to get nothing but chaos and money at the end of each of the collectibles. There should be a nice, juicy unlock when you collect all of each type.

I have another question, will JC3 have any support (on PC) for external controllers such as a joystick,
so that you can use the joystick to control planes and helicopters?

In JC2 there was tons to do in terms of side missions but the actual story itself was fairly short so l ask will JC3 have a longer story?

The article also contains an over 6 min long video of Christofer Sundberg & Roland Lesterlin talking
about JC-franchise and JC3. A few JC3 screenshots can be seen in the video and it looks fantastic.

Some confirmed features are: caves, tunnels & the ability to blow up bridges :D

So there it is, no MP for JC3, personally I don't play much online but I definitely think that the devs should
have included some form of MP/Cp-op to JC3.

Bubo999, I honestly have mixed feelings about multiplayer. On the one hand, the potential fun for a multiplayer sandbox seems jaw-droppingly attractive. on the other hand, I honestly believe that the quest for full-blown multiplayer is what ruined GTA. While GTA was a single player sandbox, the focus was on over-the-top fun, breaking rules, and just having a riotous good time.

When Rockstar started designing GTA IV, I believe that they had to curtail an unacceptable amount of single player fun in order to make the world more stable so that cheaters couldn't easily exploit the sandbox to their own ends and victimize honest players. Oh, certainly Rockstar's newfound need to turn GTA into some version of a "playable movie game" didn't help either. But I believe that when you create a game as huge as a good sandbox environment and you focus a lot of resources on the online, the game has to become a great deal more inherently stable and far less over-the-top so that the gameplay can be grounded to accommodate true multiplayer.

I would be on board for Just Cause 3's having multiplayer if, and only if, it is developed LAST and not used as a platform to drag the gameplay down to Earth and make everything all believable and realistic.

Thankfully, Avalanche is NOT making this a multiplayer game from the start, so if they do add it later on, they will have to layer multiplayer on top of the original over-the-top game, so the single player will come first AND dictate the tone of the game even if multiplayer follows. This is the complete opposite of GTA, where I believe it is the multiplayer that dragged the gameplay into mundane, boring, "realistic" territories.

Hello! :) If you have any questions about JC3, please ask away! :)

Can you tell us anything about what kind of vehicles we could expect?
Any new type(s) of vehicles? Like perhaps mini-submarines (which we need to explore the underwater caves) ;)
or perhaps some form of car transporters?

"The Face Of Just Cause 3: The Evolution Of Rico"


Fictional characters never emerge into the world fully formed; it takes time and a lot of
iteration to create a person out of nothing – even if they aren't real. Using original concept art and
in game art, we take a look back at Just Cause's protagonist.

Born on the Mediterranean island of Medici, Rico Rodriguez was recruited by a covert arm of the
CIA – simply called The Agency – when he was only 18-years-old. While with the The Agency,
Rico ran a series of black ops to support Guerrilla revolutionaries and overthrow evil dictators
around the world. As you can see in one of the first concept sketches (below), Rico's origins
were quite a bit different from his final form in the first Just Cause.

Awesome screens, Bubo!

You know which one I find the most exciting? Believe it or not, the third from the top. Because while I have ALWAYS loved JC2 (and still do to this day) one of the most limiting things about the game was the fact that you could only hold one heavy weapon. This means that in ALL my saves and play even to this day, I almost never use the rocket launcher. I basically spam the Heavy Machine Gun in that slow. But that screenshot of Rico's back shows TWO heavy weapons, not the one you usually see there in JC2.

I can't wait to play this game.

Hello! :) If you have any questions about JC3, please ask away! :)

Доброго времени суток! Приобрел игру JC3 несколько дней назад. Начал проходить, прошел вступление и несколько последующих миссий и вышел. На следующий день снова зашел, но осталось сохранение только после прохождения вступления, а дальше игра не сохранилась. Снова решил пройти миссию, вышел, зашел, но все равно игра начинается с одного места
