Just Cause 3 Will Only Be Single Player, No Microtransactions Either

Avalanche Studios has confirmed that Just Cause 3 will be a single player affair, so those of you hoping to see Just Cause 2’s multiplayer mod having an affect on the new game’s development may be disappointed. That isn’t to say that Avalanche hasn’t considered the option, but the studio want to focus on the solo experience for the player.

“We’ll continue to support the multiplayer mod, but for us the single-player experience is what we’re focusing on right now. Maybe sometime down the line we’ll take Rico into the world of multiplayer, but right now it’s the sandbox experience.”

Some of you may also have seen the early leaked shots of Just Cause 3, and those featured what looked like microtransactions. However, Avalanche has confirmed that these will not feature in the game, and were mock ups for early concepts.


“Following last week’s rumours and speculation, we also wanted to take the opportunity to address a few misconceptions. 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.

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.”

At least all that has been cleared up then.

  1. If they say no microtransactions then there will be Weapon/Vehicle DLCs =P

  2. No multiplayer is kinda surprising after the successful online mod of the first game. It even got on steam!

  3. Glad to see no micro transactions and not that bothered about no multiplayer.
    I’m surprised we haven’t heard a lot more about this game seeing as they’re hoping to release it next year.

  4. No micro transactions. Good times! No multiplayer. Bad times! Still as it’s just cause provided the world is a little more densely populated with different things then it’ll still be grand open world antics. Couldn’t get enough of nicking big choppers and laying waste to military bases on JC2.

  5. That’s all good news to me :)
    A new Just Cause, without stupid schemes, and the developer’s full attention directed towards the single player campaign?

    Bliss! :D

  6. What happened to Mad Max?

  7. This is the best news of the day. Focusing on singleplayer can only be a good thing.
