Usually it’s usually PC players that get stiffed when it comes to launch day bugs—the disastrous Arkham Knight port being a primary example—but Just Cause 3 is reportedly causing problems on PC and console. Reports are entrance in from mixed media outlets and Reddit users that JC3 is pang from pointless support rate drops, crashes, and disintegrating oceans, to name usually a few problems.
An early research of a a Xbox One chronicle from NX Gamer claims that personification a diversion for some-more than hour leads to loading times of over 15 minutes, with a support rate dropping to as low as 17FPS. NX Gamer also gifted mixed crashes—which is a quite large problem for a console game—and other problems that could usually be resolved by a full complement reboot.
“This usually looks like memory leakages where it’s clearing out RAM,” NX Gamer’s video research says. “Some of a AI goes mad, a production can conflict unequivocally oddly, and unfortunately on tip of all these problems, a opening with a diversion that’s totally designed around floating things adult and carrying this pell-mell universe doesn’t perform really good during all.”
While a Xbox One chronicle of a diversion seems be pang a most, a PS4 version—which runs during 1080p, rather a Xbox One’s 900p—also has support rate drops. According to Digital Foundry, both a Xbox One and PS4 versions of a diversion are incompetent to means their 30FPS target, nonetheless it records that a console versions demeanour “equivalent to a high environment on a PC game.”
“Avalanche pushes a vessel out there with a Havok [physics engine] middleware,” says Digital Foundry, “but this does means opening issues on both consoles. Blowing adult a overpass with C4 explosives causes a mid-20s drop on both machines as a structure crumbles into a member parts. Bearing in mind that not a outrageous volume is function from a visible viewpoint otherwise, it does advise that a Jaguar CPU design of both consoles is being pushed to a limit.”

As we remarkable in our examination of JC3, a PC chronicle of a diversion suffers from mixed problems, even on comparatively good hardware (a GTX 770). This enclosed unchanging freezing, audio desyncing from video, pointless disconnects from Square Enix’s servers, and a whole sea disappearing. The after appears to be a common problem for PC users, with multiple Reddit threads commenting on disintegrating water, as good as glitchy towering ranges.
Nvidia has expelled a new Game Ready motorist to assistance assuage some of a issues, while AMD has pushed out a beta driver. However, issues still sojourn for many users, quite those with AMD cards.
“There are some famous issues that start with a many new central recover AMD/ATi graphics label drivers,” pronounced Square Enix in a matter on Steam. “We’re operative with AMD to repair a emanate around an arriving central motorist update—however to safeguard we don’t knowledge these issues yourself right now greatfully make certain we are regulating a latest beta motorist available.”
JC3 sports some large complement requirements, that creates a bad opening all a some-more disappointing. They embody a smallest Core i5-2500K or AMD Phenom II X6, 6GB of RAM, and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 670 2GB or AMD Radeon HD 7870 2GB graphics card. 8GB of RAM, a Core i7, and a GTX 780 3GB or AMD R9 290 4GB are recommended.
It’s value observant that not everybody has been experiencing problems with a game, nonetheless those that aren’t are typically using most beefier systems. In my possess contrast during a weekend a diversion ran fine, though on a complement using an i7, a quick SSD, 16GB of RAM, and a Titan X GPU.
While economics foreordain that Square Enix is expected to work on regulating a console versions of a diversion before a PC version, here’s anticipating that it doesn’t lift a Warner Brothers and usually give adult before a pursuit is finished. We’ve reached out to Square Enix for criticism on a opening problems and will refurbish a story with a response.
