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 coming from the VisionTek R9 280X 3GB. We see, for the most part, performance is just slightly ahead of the HD 7970 GHz Edition 3GB.
Against the GTX 770 2GB, you can see performance is strong across the board, with the most impressive performance difference being seen at the highest resolution with a strong 87 FPS being seen from the VisionTek R9 280X 3GB.
