Avalanche Studios has today officially announced that Just Cause 3 is in development and will offer a game that isn’t free-to-play or contain micro-transactions as previously rumoured.
Four years after the release of previous game Just Cause 2, the new Just Cause 3 open-world shooter will be launching sometime next year and will be available to play on next generation PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles as well as PC systems.
Avalanche co-founder and chief creative officer Christofer Sundberg explains a little more about the new title and talks about the recently leaked Just Cause 3 screenshots :
“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.”
“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.”- “Beyond launch, we are likely to look into DLC packs and items as part of our ambition to support Just Cause 3 and its players for many years to come, but until that time we’re completely focused on making the best Just Cause game we possibly can. Rest assured it will be a huge, fully packed and extremely rewarding experience right out of the gate.”
