Just Cause 3 Updates to Version 1.02

By Rebecca Smith, 1 year ago
Those of you who have experienced a few bugs along your journey through Medici in Just Cause 3 will be pleased to know that the game will be updated this week. Over the next couple of days, Xbox One owners will be able to take advantage of the following fixes:

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
Developer Avalanche Studios has also added a few tips for some of the more common problems that players have been having:

UNSKIPPABLE CUTSCENES

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.

NO CROUCH

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.
This patch is "part of a much larger plan to optimize and improve the game". Be sure to stay tuned to TA as we bring you news of all of the future updates to the game.
