2010’s Just Cause 2 has become something of a surprise hit—intentionally campy from beginning to end, the entire game went for a distinctly B-movie-esque atmosphere. With Steam sales lowering the cost down to as little as $2.99, its sales have reached upwards of 6 million copies. This sudden increase in units sold led many to fear for Just Cause 3‘s future when a leak was released showcasing microtransactions.
However, Avalanche Studios’ recent blog post announcing
Just Cause 3 in an official capacity has put our worries to rest with a confirmation that it will be a fully-featured $60 release that won’t nickle-and-dime players into oblivion. Of course, this doesn’t mean that Avalanche will be dropping it post-release. With a quick glance below, you’ll find their full quote.
To be perfectly clear: Just Cause 3 will be available in 2015 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC. It will be distributed as a retail box and digital download. It is not a Free To Play game. It does not feature in-game micro transactions.
Does that mean we’ll release the game and call it quits? Nope. Beyond launch, we are likely to look into DLC packs and items as part of our ambition to support Just Cause 3 and its players for many years to come, but until that time we’re completely focused on making the best Just Cause game we possibly can. Rest assured it will be a huge, fully packed and extremely rewarding experience right out of the gate.
