The Dunia Engine was built specifically for Far Cry 2 by the award-winning Ubisoft Montreal development team. It delivers the most realistic destructible environments, amazing special effects such as dynamic fire propagation and storm effects, real-time night-and-day cycle, dynamic music system, non-scripted enemy A.I. and so much more.

Like we've seen all along, we've got good performance across the board. But like a few of our other games the most important score we want to look at is that 2560 x 1600 minimum. We again see that the difference between the HD 4890 and the HD 5870 is the latter lets us play the game at Very High using that ultra high 2560 x 1600 resolution.
