Square Enix has just announced that that the PC version of their upcoming game Just Cause 2 will feature a suite of advanced graphical enhancements supported by NVIDIA GPUs (taking advantage of the CUDA technology), including next-generation lighting and water routines and full support for 3D Vision, adding further immersion into the graphically rich game.
The developer Avalanche Studios has incorporated support for NVIDIA CUDA technology which helps to deliver a higher level of visual fidelity within the game’s environments. CUDA-enhanced features in Just Cause 2 include incredible in-game effects, with rivers, lakes and oceans beautifully rendered with realistic rising swells, flowing waves and ripples, while advanced photographic Bokeh lens techniques add an additional cinematic quality to the look and feel of the game. Just Cause 2 has also been optimized to take full advantage of NVIDIA 3D Vision technology on compatible hardware, creating an incredibly immersive 3D experience.
In Just Cause 2 you’ll be taking the role of Rico Rodriguez, the Agency’s most powerful weapon. You’ll take on the island of Panau and its military regime in order to track down Rico’s former boss and mentor, Tom Sheldon, who has gone rogue with millions in Agency cash and intel. Using an unique grapple and parachute combination, there is no vertical limit as the air becomes your playground: grapple a passing plane in flight, hijack helicopters, BASE jump from the tallest buildings or mountains and leave a trail of chaos and destruction in your wake. Just Cause 2 offers players the freedom to tackle missions any way they choose and, with over 100 vehicles and countless upgrades and collectibles, the choices for relentless adrenaline-fueled action are limitless. And all that combined with great stereoscopic 3D support is very promising.
The game Just Cause 2 will be available in-stores on March 23rd, 2010, in North America and March 26th, 2010, in Europe, Middle East, and Australasia and is already available for pre-orders for everyone willing to get is as soon as it is released.
