Get your first look at Just Cause 3 running on PS4

1 min read


Just Cause 3 is mere days away, and so far most of what we’ve seen of the explosive Avalanche Studios sequel has been ripped straight from PC. It’s a way to ensure that the game always looks its best, but its given us no idea just how well (or horribly) it runs on console. That’s changed before release thankfully, with a rather long look at the game running on PS4.

Square Enix already showed off he first hour of the game earlier this week, but PlayStation Access managed to get around the same amount of time on PS4 to show to the world. It’s running at 1080p and 30FPS, and for the most part things look incredibly smooth. Whether Rico is wingsuiting through an explosion or creating said explosion with a volley of rockets, the PS4 seems to deal with everything just fine. Take a look.

Of course there are many other ways to analyse a game’s performance, and I’m sure the experts in this field will have their hands dirty with the game when it launches next Tuesday. Open-world games of this manner are often hard to get locked at 30FPS (or any framerate for that matter), and Just Cause makes it even more difficult with all the errant destruction you’re able to cause. That’re a lot of calculations happening at a time to make sure the bridge you just blew up actually falls and breaks properly, but it’s all worth it.

It’s happened before with Arkham Knight earlier this year (the console versions were stellar), so here’s to hoping that Just Cause 3 is a stable, enjoyable romp throughout. It’s out on Tuesday.

      I think it’s pretty close to the PC 1hr demo actually and bear in mind the PC demo was a precisely created mp4 video made by the dev. This PS4 demo is just a capture done by a website and looks to be using causer video compression. On PS4 direct to your HD TV it will look amazing.

      I’m really impressed how smooth it runs with all that detail. Never judge graphics by looking at Youtube compressed video. The mushiness is the video compression. Just use Youtube as a rough guide and then expect better. It always is better on the actual console.

    Am I the only one who is having performance issues? When I blow up a lot of things at the same time with a flac cannon, the fps seems to drop even below 25 which is really disappointing. Until now I’m the only one who’s having the issue it seems. Hope it gets patched soon

        Yeah, I know it’s supposed to be 30 fps but it’s dropping way lower than that sometimes
