Just Cause 2 Summary
It took a group of hard-working modders to add multiplayer functionality to Just Cause 2 with the hugely popular JC2-MP mod, eventually released by publisher Square Enix as DLC for the open world action game.
Considering the mod's subsequent success, it's strange to hear that Just Cause 3 won't ship with a multiplayer capability at launch. Avalanche CCO Christofer Sundberg explained whyrecently.
Avalanche Studios is still a busy bee with their Mad Max game in the works, but fans are also eagerly awaiting a new Just Cause. So far the studio hasn't made anything official to fans of the series.
However a former employee of Chinese outsourcing studio Virtuos lists Just Cause 3 on their LinkedIn profile, alongside Kojima's two Metal Gear Solid 5 titles.
Avalanche Studios, the team behind Just Cause 2, has announced on that it will be moving to a larger office in Stockholm, and that it has "several surprises" in store for 2015.
"2015 is set to be the biggest year since the inception of Avalanche Studios more than a decade ago,"
"2015 is set to be the biggest year since the inception of Avalanche Studios more than a decade ago,"promises the developer.
JC2:MM, the free fan-developed multiplayer mod for Just Cause 2, is to be released today on Steam. A brand new launch trailer provides some idea of the fun to be had.
A trip to Costa Rica by Avalanche Studios has been exposed in a new developer diary, where they show staff capturing the abundance of jungle wild-life and even make sure there's plenty of ocean footage.
It's all for "reference material" and research in their "upcoming open world games," and the captured sky is partially used in Mad Max. They mention Just Cause and how important water simulation is.
