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 sees some really nice gains across the board and you can see we're again sitting around the same level as the original HD 7970 in this case.

 

We also again see that the new model manages to sneak out ahead of the GTX 660 Ti at the highest resolution. It does lag slightly behind at the lower resolutions, though.
