I know that so far there has only been a teaser image released back in late Feb. but I thought I would make a topic and see what people think of the series and whether they would like to see a JC3.

Avalanche Teases Just Cause 3

Incidentally, JC2 is $3.00USD on steam if you've never played it. It's a heap of fun.

JC2 was my favorite game ever :) It still would be but too much time has passed.

Not much to say about 3 yet but I'm sure it'll be fantastic.

Well i think we can safely say it will have multiplayer. Which if done right, could be absolutely brilliant.
It will be interesting to see what they do with the story as that has been the weakest part of the series.
It just felt like filler in between the chaos.

I'd love a fully destructible persistent environment. If it is next gen (most likely) then i don't see why it isn't possible. It might just not be fun from a gameplay point of view.

Meh. I played the demo of 2 and it was alright for the hour of gameplay it offered. Then a couple of months ago I picked it up for £12. I think I've played the full game less than I played the demo. The action was too mindless for me, the story more so.

The first hour of the full game is very scripted and boring, it picks up after that TBH.

I've played JC2 for many hours. After playing through the story for a little while I decided to just explore the massive map and just went around shooting everyone, blowing things up and causing chaos. I eventually grew tired of it. I'm not too interested in JC3 as I can only imagine it'll be more of the same.

The action was too mindless for me, the story more so.


Although I enjoyed playing it, I have to agree that it's mindless.

That is agood tip.
I found the start soo boring, go here do this, go there do that.
But after that, its more like GTA. do what you like, do missions or dont. :)

On another note, about the mindless destruction. that's sorta the point of the game. Its called "Just Cause" as in, just because. for no particular reason xD

I hope they improve the "checkpoint" system. Nothing worse than dying/turning the game off only to have to travel 20 bloody miles to get back to where you were.

The game also needs to tighten up the vehicle controls especially the planes. :s

Just Cause 2 is an awesome game, with great open world gameplay.

Really looking forward to Just Cause 3 when it arrives.

I tried to complete the entire map but there were some bugs at some locations o.o
(realistically though, I probably put enough effort in to do it 2.5 times!)

I loved JC2. The only problem I had with it was that I spent so much time roaming around blow s**t up I never got too far into the story.
