Just Cause 3 doesn’t come out officially until December 1, but because we got our hands on a retail copy early, we can confirm it does indeed require a patch download.

The patch size is just below 2.8GB on PlayStation 4. It’s not clear at present if another patch will follow on release or before, but as of right now, patch 1.01 is the only “day one” patch available.

Find all the notes below, it’s quite a list. The initial set is particularly funny.
