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 is also looking really strong and you can see, like the R7 260X 2GB, we've got strong performance at both 1680 x 1050 and 1920 x 1200, with numbers over the 60 FPS range. The difference is that the HIS R9 270 IceQ X2 2GB manages to also just break past the 60 FPS range at 2560 x 1600.
