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 strong across the board, and you can see playable numbers at all resolutions. We get a nice little performance boost across the board, but the extra FPS seen at 2560 x 1600 is fantastic as we manage to get a bit more breathing room, moving from a 63 FPS average to a 68 FPS average.
