just-cause-3-logoLearn more about Rico Rodriguez in the first of a 5-part series

Today sees the first release in the Just Cause 3 dev diary series. This first video offers insight from Avalanche Studios about who Rico Rodriguez is, what new skills and abilities he’s bringing to the table for his third outing, and how the team have brought him to life.

“He’s gotten older,” explains Game Director Roland Lesterlin in the video, “he’s got his scars from his years in Panau and San Esperito. We wanted to give him that background. What would it be like if you set off a nuke? Twice?”

If you missed it, we’ve also released a ‘Meet the Team’ Vignette’, which offers a glimpse behind the curtain at Avalanche Studios, introducing some of the key team working on Just Cause 3.

Game Informer’s Just Cause 3 announcement coverage continues with word that Just Cause 3 will not ship with multiplayer, and any multiplayer support the sandbox action sequel receives will come after release, similar to Just Cause 2, which has a multiplayer mod created with Avalanche’s blessings. Studio cofounder Christofer Sundberg remains guarded on the topic at this time, saying, “Maybe sometime down the line, we’ll take Rico into the modern world of multiplaying.” The article also talks with the creators of the Just Cause 2 multiplayer mod, who remain cagy, raising suspicions they may have plans they are not revealing at this time. Shinra Technologies vice president of business Jacob Navok has the following to say:

“We’re working on a possible future collaboration with Avalanche Studios.” Game Informer may have more game information they are not sharing as well, as despite the vagueness of all the official statements, they come away saying they’d bet “not a small amount” that MP support will eventually come to the game.
