Just Cause 3 Multiplayer Mod Launching Very Soon

Just Cause 3 is finally getting a multiplayer mode next week. The online portion arrives on PC as part of a mod by a fan group called Nanos GBR, and it launches on July 20.

According to the mod’s Steam listing, it will bring “hilarious brawls, stunts, and races” and allow you to play with “hundreds of other players.” Modes will include races, deathmatch, skydiving, freeroam, and more.

The mod had previously been available as part of an open beta, but July 20 sees it launch in full for the first time.

A separate Just Cause 3 multiplayer mod appeared to be dead in 2016 when its lead designer, Cameron Foote, abandoned the project after he was offered a job at Avalanche Studios, the base game’s developer.

“Several months ago, I was approached with an offer I couldn’t refuse: to join Avalanche Studios Sweden as a developer so that I could work on projects present and future,” he explained at the time. “Unfortunately, due to time constraints, neither I or the rest of the team can actively pursue development on JC3-MP; our lives are just too busy to allow for it right now.”

Foote was part of a team separate from Nanos called JC-MP, which developed the successful multiplayer mod for Just Cause 2. After the success of that add-on, many hoped there would be official online support for the third entry in the series. Just Cause 3 launched without any multiplayer, however, leaving community groups to take up the project.

Right now, Nanos’s mod is only playable on PC, though Avalanche Studios has said it is thinking about bringing mods to consoles.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
