Just Cause 3 is getting an update which promises to improve load times with the arrival of Patch 1.02. The update is being made available on the European PlayStation Store today with the US Store and Xbox Marketplace being updated over the coming days following the required approvals, the PC update will release on Friday.
The announcement and patch notes were released on the Official Blog along with some explanations of “issues” which aren’t actually issues, like
You can skip cutscenes, in fact – all you need to do is hold B on your gamepad, or hit ‘Skip’ from the pause menu.
NO SPRINT BUTTON
This isn’t an oversight; it’s very much intended. Our designer’s intent was to encourage you to use Rico’s unique grapple to move around Medici far quicker than his legs would allow, as well as giving you the ability to traverse vertically.
Rico doesn’t hide. Getting him up in the air is our version of the cover mechanic. Rico is far more deadly in the skies, than pinned behind a container on the ground.
FINDING THE LAST CHAOS OBJECT
While there’s no mini-map to help you liberate bases and towns, you can always bring up your map to help find Chaos objects. When you’re down to the last few objects in any given settlement, an approximate location for these will be displayed on the map.
So for just over 132MB, the update does aim to address:
- Significantly improved loading times
- Optimizations to online stats
- General stability fixes
- Fixed an issue related to challenges, wherein vehicles sometimes disappeared when starting a challenge
- Fixed issues related to screen resizing and closing the game window before the game has fully started up [PC ONLY]
Just Cause 3 is currently available for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
