The release of Just Cause 3 may have provided gamers with a fairly stable version of the game but it was not without its issues. With problems with long loading times and a few stability issues, the patch that has arrived this week has been eagerly awaited.
Today Xbox One users are confirming that the patch has arrived and is 2.9GB in size, the PC download is a lot smaller at 132.1MB which is a surprising difference. Here are the official notes on the new patch, as well as a few comments on some user feedback for the game:
In the 1.02 patch (132.1MB), you can expect:
+ 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]
To those of you still having issues, rest assured we are working hard to alleviate these, and are listening very closely to everything that’s being said.
While the patch will improve performance on the whole, we’ve listened to some of the other concerns raised about the game and put together a little list of points which might alleviate these issues:
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.
Hopefully this will make the performance for the game better for those who are still enjoying it. Now to see just what these improvements are.
