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.

Far Cry 2 performance is very strong across the board for most models here, but we continue to see the HD 5850 Xtreme separate itself from the HD 6850 and GTX 550 Ti. The HD 5830 also manages to perform strong, performing similar to the HD 6850 but easily beating out the GTX 550 Ti again.
