Just like its predecessor, Just Cause 3 is going to get a multiplayer mod.
One of the best things to happen to Just Cause 2 was the release of a mod that let you play the open-world game with hundreds of your closest friends. The chaos and destruction were widespread. Now its newest sibling, Just Cause 3, is getting a multiplayer mod of its own.
The new mod is being created by a team that calls itself nanos. It has developed multiplayer mods for games like Mafia 2 and GTA 4, and was working on an alternative multiplayer mod for GTA 5 before the project was brought to a halt by a cease & desist from Take Two.
That shouldn’t be an issue for this project, as the mod group’s site claims that the project is “officially approved by Avalanche Studios and Square Enix and is currently in development.” The team ran into a bit of a hangup in dealing with the Denuvo anti-piracy tech, but they’ve moved past that now, and a new trailer (seen below) shows off multiple players soaring through the world.
The mod still has a ways to go before it is complete, but according to a post made by the mod’s community manager, the build is “slowly getting to a really playable state, as we were able to play for about an hour without a single crash or timeout.”
There’s no release date set for this mod, but you can bet that the mayhem that ensues once it’s live will be worth checking out.
