Mod Brings Multiplayer To Just Cause 3's Chaotic Open World

Just Cause 3 is best known for giving players the ability to rambunctiously cause havoc and destruction in its large sandbox world. Now, thanks to a multiplayer mod that recently released, you can go on a rampage with a group of friends.

The mod, titled JC3:MP, can hold more than 100 players on its servers, so that you can explore Medici cooperatively with friends, or go against them competitively in races and deathmatches. On the mod's official website, the team describes the multiplayer addition as such: "Our modification opens the door to incredible multiplayer possibilities including racing, deathmatch, skydiving, roleplaying or free-roam."

You can view the beta trailer for JC3:MP below. It is available for download via the modder's website, with the official 1.0 release coming in February or March on Steam. Because this is a beta, some bugs are still in the process of being fixed.

Just Cause 2 also received a multiplayer mod by an entirely different group of modders, who were also planning to make a multiplayer rendition for Just Cause 3. However, after the lead creator Cameron Foote was hired by developer Avalanche Studios to work on the Just Cause series itself, this modder group canceled the project.

JC3:MP is created by Nanos GbR, and while it is not available on Steam Workshop at this time, you can download the PC mod beta here. You can also check out our glowing review for Just Cause 3.

Correction: A previous version of this article stated that this mod was officially released. However, JC:MP is currently out as a beta, with its official release happening on Steam in a couple months time. Game Informer regrets this error.
