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.

While we've got playable FPS at 2560 x 1600 on the reference clocked card, we're not all that far over that 30 FPS minimum we want. You can see here we manage to stretch our legs a bit more and get a good distance from it.
