Just Cause 2 is one of the PC’s greatest open world adventures and features explosions, exploration and chaotic gunplay. The developer, Avalanche Studios is renowned for making absolutely stunning PC games which run superbly on a wide range of hardware. After a lengthy development period, Just Cause 3 is finally on the horizon and adopts a gorgeous visual style. If the game runs anything like Mad Max, then the performance should be flawless.
Gamersyde managed to record a hands-on preview during Paris Game Week. Interestingly, the footage is from the PC version running on Ultra and looks remarkably smooth. Additionally, the system used to capture the video contained an i5 processor (no more details on the exact model) and GTX 970. The game was probably running on a 1920×1080 display so it’s unknown how well the engine will scale to much higher resolutions.
Whatever the case, it’s great to see the game running so well on a modest setup. For those of you interested in picking up Just Cause 3, CDKeys currently has it on pre-order for the absurdly cheap price of £19.99. Once again, the value proposition of PC gaming comes into force when you factor in the price of day one mainstream titles.
Are you looking forward to Just Cause 3?
