The Unofficial JC3 Multiplayer Mode Goes Live!

It’s here, it’s out, it’s finished! Well, alright it’s not finished, yet, but we can enjoy it now and it’s also available on Steam. Nanos, the guys behind the infamous GTA V alternative online mod that was stopped by Take Two a few years back, got together with Square Enix and Avalanche to implement their crazy idea of a multiplayer into Just Cause 3.

It took them quite a few months to get this modification where it is now, and Nanos aren’t done yet. Features like achievements, synced tethering and being able to change your player-skin are planed for version 1.1. However, NPC’s are missing from the world and I’m a bit skeptical that we’ll ever see them in this multiplayer-mod. The empty world of the Just Cause 2 MP mod back in the day was one of the biggest gripes players had with the modification. But it’s understandable that some things might just not work out in a shoehorned multiplayer mod like this.

That said, you’re able to script your own game-modes and UI’s for your own dedicated server. Mmh… dedicated servers, delicious, something I haven’t heard in quite a while, right… Destiny 2? By the way, have I mention that the JC3 multiplayer-mod is absolutely free? Gotta give it to Nanos for their upstanding work and dedication, kudos!
