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, ranging 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 again strong, and you can see we've got a slight performance increase at all resolutions. You can see the added MHz on the core helps give us a bit more breathing room like we saw under Lost Planet 2. At 1920 x 1200, you can see the extra FPS helps take us out of the 60 FPS range and into the 70 FPS one.
