Just Cause 3 patch available on PC, PS4, Xbox One; 'significantly improves' load times

The first patch for Just Cause 3 has just been released, and with it, the loading times of the game have been 'significantly' improved.


Square Enix has released the first patch for Just Cause 3 after saying it would take a little bit of time to publish a patch for the open-world action game.

Patch 1.02 offers a number of improvements, which includes significantly improved loading times, online stats optimizations, and general stability fixes as well as some specific issues, such as fixing challenges that had vehicles sometimes disappear when starting, or issues with screen resizing.

Square Enix assures those who still have issues with Just Cause 3 after upgrading to today’s patch that they’re still working on alleviating them. In addition to this assurance, the publisher published some points that will help alleviate some issues players are having with the game:


You can skip cutscenes, in fact – all you need to do is hold B on your gamepad, or hit ‘Skip’ from the pause menu.


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.


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.

Just Cause 3 patch 1.02 is currently available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
