Just Cause 3 is an Action and Adventure game published by Square Enix released in 2015.

Just Cause 3 offers the following styles of gameplay.

  • Games that are considered action are all about centering the player in the middle of an evolving situation.
  • In an adventure game you generally play through a story, usually as the protagonist. They rely heavily on story telling and can be inspired from books or movies.

Port Forward Just Cause 3

When you are playing Just Cause 3 you might need to forward some ports in your router. Forwarding ports is a useful trick in gaming because it can really help to make your network connection most stable and frequently even faster. Routers were not designed to allow incoming network requests and some games can play tremendously better if an incoming connection is forwarded through the router to the game.

Before you can forward a port you need to know the following things:

  • The IP address of your network router.
  • The IP address of the device that the game will play on: either your computer or your console.
  • The TCP and UDP ports that need to be forwarded.
