Hey everyone,

As we mentioned in our last blog post, we are eager to share more behind the scenes information about the future updates to Just Cause 4. Thanks to everyone for their words of encouragement in response to this news!

The team is ready to launch a new console update. Xbox and PlayStation users can expect this patch to roll out today. Included in this patch is the latest water effects and anti-aliasing improvements. PC players will receive a similar update later this week, along with additional features such as Chroma Keyboard support. Follow @JustCause on Twitter for the latest news on this!

Here are the patch notes for PS4/Xbox One:

  • Performance improvements
  • Water improvements
  • Vegetation improvements
  • New anti-aliasing system
  • New 4K rendering solution
  • Various bug fixes
  • Updated Customization menu
  • JC3 Rico Skin (Legacy Item)

You can see the improvements to anti-aliasing in the below image:

We’ve also added a little gift for all you double denim fans out there. Included in the patch update is a free Legacy Item – The Just Cause 3 Rico outfit! This is just one of the free Legacy Items we have planned. We hope to share more about Legacy Items soon. You can access the JC3 Rico skin from the updated customisation menu.

We know that a lot of fans have asked about DLC and future content for Just Cause 4. We have put together a roadmap that shows some of the upcoming updates to the game. We will of course be sharing news on DLC3 and other content down the line closer to their launch. Please note that some of these timings may change but we will keep you up-to-date via this blog.

As you can see, we’ve split this timeline between free and premium content. As well as the expected DLC packs we’re also going to be releasing more legacy item updates for free, and continuing to patch updates into the game.

We are also pleased to reveal that we’ll be launching a free monthly challenge program starting with the launch of DLC2. These Monthly Challenges will test even the most skilled JC players. Completing each challenge will earn you cosmetic rewards for your wingsuit & parachute – we will be talking more about Monthly Challenges closer to launch.

We look forward to sharing more with you soon!

Thanks for keeping up with the news. Much better improvement then day one launch. Waterfall still glitchy and the rocks around it are not rendering right. Please fix.

Please add a proper day/ night cycle. If GTA 5 can do it why can’t you? Rico’s already got a watch on his wrist, just put a time display on the map or in the corner of the screen.

Please please please add an option to turn off auto boost on planes (especially the large passenger plane) and regarding that pearticular plane can you make the flight mechanics a little stiffer like the private jet for the huge passenger airliners or have them how they were in jc2

PLEASE, I'm begging. Restore proper day/night cycle. The effects are there. It's just that the night lasts for a heartbeat. At least put it in as an option. I loved JC2 as a sightseeing game. Now JC4 has no ocean, no sunrise, no sunset and no night time. PLEASE, get us some of that back.

It is very difficult to improve first view on airplanes or helicopters? Thanks

Please add first person view in all vehicles or in the airplanes.

@ricofan60 - Just Cause 2 is no longer updated if I'm not mistaken.

@antonio15198 - If add endless ammunition to the vehicles will be unrealistic and boring.

With everything thats an issue so far, yes updates are great but its basically fixing something that should of been fixed to begin with.
