Just Cause 3 System Requirements

According to a leaked picture of Just Cause 3’s back cover, the game will use NVIDIA’s expansive GameWorks effects suite. NVIDIA GameWorks will provide lots of impressive enhancements across the game, from destructible environments and real-time physics to ambient smoke and fog effects. Considering Just Cause 3 is based around a wide, open world of fiery havoc, some of the GameWorks effects like PhysX, Destruction, Enhanced Horizon-Based Ambient Occlusion and Turbulence are a perfect choice.

Avalanche or NVIDIA didn’t revealed the full list of GameWorks effects used in Just Cause 3. But few thing that may use are down below.


  • Turbulence – High definition smoke and fog with physical interaction as well as supernatural effects
  • HBAO+ – Enhanced Horizon Based Ambient Occlusion
  • TXAA – Temporal Anti-aliasing
  • WaveWorks – Cinematic-quality ocean simulation for interactive applications
  • PhysX – Scalable multi-platform game physics solution supporting a wide range of devices, from smartphones to high-end multi-core CPUs and GPUs
  • Destruction – Enables artists to quickly generate pervasive destruction significantly enhancing the gaming experience
  • Particles & Fluids – Particles enable artists to easily provide a much more immersive environment by using physical particles which can interact e.g. with wind and explosion force fields. Particles can also be used to simulate fluids

The leaked back picture also revealed the system requirements for the game.
