The Just Cause series is almost an off shoot from one of the biggest titles around. GTAs mastery at enabling the player to do whatever you want, in a huge sandbox game pushed it beyond all competition. To keep keeping it gritty it added layers of realism. While that direction was appealing for the GTA franchise, this meant there was massive scope for some other games, Saints Row and Just Cause, to go totally nuts.

Just Cause 3 offers the equivalent of all the most insane/ludicrous stunts from every James Bond film and making them possible for a player to do the same, while tearing it around a Dictator owned tropical island.

Check out our similar Fallout 4DOOM, BattlefrontDishonored 2HitmanTotal War Warhammer and No Mans Sky sys spec summary.

Just Cause 3 Release Period: December 1st 2015

Platforms Just Cause 3 is available on: PC, PS4 XBox One

Just Cause 3 full development began: 2012

Just Cause 3 Background: Taking place several years after Just Cause 2, you again play as Rico Rodriguez. Returning to your home country of Medici, a fictional island in the Med sea, you discover that a vicious dictator, General Di Ravello, has taken control of Medici. And from there unfolds the special kind of devastation that only Rico can deliver. A one man wrecking ball, armed with guns and a grappling hook.

What we know about Just Cause 3

  • Open world third person game
  • Just Cause 3 will have a similar map size to Just Cause 2. The equivalent of 400 square miles
  • There is more physical depth to the maps. Allowing underground gameplay in caverns etc
  • There are 5 key areas in the map, each with their own unique environmental factors
  • Grappling hook and parachute will return, with enhanced game mechanics
  • There is a wingsuit, that can be used at any point in place of the parachute
  • Due to popularity of many mods in Just Cause 2, Just Cause 3 enables the player to tether multiple objects together with the grappling hooks
  • Every object and non playable character can be hooked together with a grappling hook
  • Vehicles such as fighter aircrafts, planes, ships, and exotic cars will be included
  • In game currency will not be in Just Cause 3. This gives access of the fun supply drops to all players
  • Enemy AI will adjust to allow for the players currently selected equipment. If a player is in a tank then the enemy will increase their own levels of equipment to better match the challenge. If the player is in a tank, this might mean that enemy soldiers get a hold of rocket launchers
  • Destruction frenzy is a new feature in Just Cause 3, which will provide new available objectives once the player destroys an enemy base
  • Everything can be destroyed in multiple ways including bridges, statues, buildings, vehicles
  • Rebel Drop is another feature of JC3. A player can pause the game to select equipment, guns, vehicles, which will automatically appear in the game world for the player to use once unpaused
  • No co-operative play or missions will be possible at launch of JC3
  • There will be player leaderboards to encourage global competition

Just Cause 3 Game Engine

The guys at Avalanche Studios are developing Just Cause 3 and they are doing this on Avalanche Engine 3.0. This amazing engine was used to great effect with Just Cause 2 and has been modified for Just Cause 3. I reckon Just Cause 3 will have solid FPS for older machines, while still looking pretty modern.

Just Cause 3 System Requirements (Speculative)

  • OS: Windows 7 or Windows 8 and above - 64bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-660 3.33GHz / AMD Phenom II X4 905e
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU VRAM: 1GB
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 or AMD Radeon HD 7790
  • HD: 15 GB Free Hard Drive Space (speculative download size)
  • DX: DirectX 11

This is likely to be one of the best hi-octane, bat sh!t crazy sandbox games around. Tonnes of fun and hopefully comparatively accessible, when it arrives.

Check out the latest trailer to get you warmed up for Just Cause 3's explosive release later this year.

Let us know all the cool mods you have used on Just Cause 2 and want to see find their way into Just Cause 3. Also share all other things you have heard will find their way into JC3, that we may have missed out on below.

The GPU as speculated above will not be recommended and also the size of download.. The GPU will get high enough for recommended settings at least 2gb of VRAM and at least 20gb hdd space.

Just Cause 2 was more than a blast, it was addictive and I laughed so hard at the insanity that was the JC2 Multiplayer Mod. The server issues also made the multiplayer mod even funnier. People were skizzing all over the screen psychotically. It almost made sense for the mod to be worse than better. I hope that cackling sense of hilarity comes back with JC3 and true multiplayer implementation happens

I'd imagine though that since consoles represent the "minimum" spec for most gaming since their pricepoint is so low, their custom AMD HD 7770s or whatever is in em might very well become the minimum for next gen in coming months. The previous Just Cause was murderous on PC's but lighter on consoles, so there is a factor too. The Avalanche Engine is also now 3.0 so who knows what that entails for effects and big bada booms. The game sure seems it'd be more CPU intensive though with all the stuff crumpling to pieces and those grappling hooks tangling everything up xD oh and the wrecking ball!!

I don't have a whole lot of hype for this game. I played a good bit of JC2 but for some reason I can't get into it all that much :/

For some reason I am not interested in this game at all but but maybe its because I haven't played the first two.

Too high?! They look great, if these are the minimum and recomended requirements it will be fantastic. Aldo I think in the end the recomended ones are going to be a lot higher than what is predicted right now!

I really hope that driving feels better than in JC2, in original JC driving was pretty fun, but JC2's driving was terrible IMO. Though i still liked the game a lot.
