Just Cause 3's patch will significantly reduce the amount of time spent waiting for the game to load. It also addresses some other technical issues.

One of the criticisms leveled at Just Cause 3 is that between all the chaos and carnage, there's a significant amount of waiting for the game to load. Patch 1.02 should improve load times across all platforms.

The patch is available now for PlayStation 4 and will roll out on other consoles this week before arriving on PC on Friday.

According to the patch notes on the game's official blog, the 132.1MB patch offers the following:

  • Significantly improved loading times
  • Optimisations to online stats
  • General stability fixes
  • Fixed an issue related to challenges, wherein vehicles sometimes disappeared when starting a challenge
  • Fixed issues related to screen resizing and closing the game window before the game has fully started up [PC ONLY]

Developer Avalanche wrote, "Since launch, we've been pouring through your reviews and comments to help us prioritise our fixes accordingly. We know many of you have been patiently awaiting today's patch, and this update is part of a much larger plan to optimise and improve the game. Thanks for your patience."

Avalanche is currently working through some technical issues with Just Cause 3, particularly on PC.
