Just Cause 2 employs the Avalanche Engine 2.0, an updated version of the engine used in Just Cause. The game is set on the other side of the world from the original Just Cause, on the fictional island of Panau in Southeast Asia. Panau has varied terrain, from desert to alpine to rainforest. Rico Rodriguez returns as the protagonist, aiming to overthrow the evil dictator Pandak "Baby" Panay and confront his former mentor, Tom Sheldon.

Just Cause 2 performance looks good at all resolutions with playable numbers across the board. We can see some really nice gains against the reference clocked video card with the most appreciated being seen at 2560 x 1600 as we move away from that 70 FPS area into the 80 FPS one making sure we've got ultra-smooth gameplay.
