Just Cause 4 isn’t the sort of game that’s going to win awards for visual fidelity alone. It’s fairly easy on the eye but it’s also not exactly leaps and bounds ahead of 2015’s Just Cause 3. Really we’re here for the jaw-dropping draw distances, roaring explosions, and hyperactive speed as Rico Rodriguez wingsuits, paraglides and grapples his way across a diverse island.

That said, there are definitely shades of quality and those planning on playing Just Cause 4 on Low graphics settings will be in for a markedly different experience than those gunning for Ultra.

Just Cause 4 Low v Ultra Graphics Comparison  

(slide your cursor over the images to compare)

Okay, onwards! We’ll start with this pair of screenshots taken from an early portion of Just Cause 4. There’s a number of factors at play here which leads to far greater image quality in the Ultra pic. Shadows are clear, distinct, and more numerous on Ultra. Combined with Ambient Occlusion this creates a far more richly detailed image with a dense treeline. Texture Detail also helps add to the image, particularly on the struts holding up the roadside railings.

This next pair tells a fairly similar story, albeit while soaring high with a parachute. Draw distance is admittedly impressive regardless of your graphics settings, although foliage pop-in is visible in Just Cause 4 when played at Low.

And the next two images below demonstrate the frankly horrific water and reflection effects in Just Cause 4 should you turn your settings down. You could actually play Tetris with those blocky pixels. Ultra doesn't look fantastic but it looks a damn sight better.

The vast majority of your time playing Just Cause 4 will be spent traversing its wilderness. On this front, foliage is plentiful, crisp and sharp on Ultra. It does still look okay on Low but the lack of Shadows, Ambient Occlusion and Antialiasing really does hurt the image. Ah, and if you click on the slider to expand the images you can get a good idea of the horrid aliasing that is present at 1080p resolution. Look at Rico's hard and beard, which shimmers during movement.

And last but, well, least, a final screenshot to demonstrate it's not all bad for Just Cause 4 players playing on Low. Heading to certain areas such as these snowy mountains and Just Cause 4 can look practically the game no matter what graphics settings you've picked.

Reinigungsfirma Basel Just Cause 4 is a high-quality game, with stunning visuals and immersive gameplay. The graphics are incredible, with rich colors and detailed textures that make the world feel real and alive. Whether you're exploring open fields or dense forests, zipping through the sky in a helicopter or skydiving from a plane, there's always something new. I just love this game!

I'll still play it because it seems somewhat similar to burbank stump grinding JC3 but with less color.

From what I've seen so far in early reviews, they toned down the graphical fidelity in exchange for performance gains(not to mention some much needed threading optimization). And apparently it worked, JC4 is performing much better than JC3 on similar systems. The water is hideous tho, even by my low visual standards.
And speaking of early, you guys should check ACG's review.

Since the engine is different - I'm rooting for SLI support, as always xD
JC3 ran fine on one card, but only at 1440p was what I'd call a great experience (140+ fps at any given time). I'd love to do 5K this time round.
