Radeon Adrenalin Edition 18.12.1 Brings Just Cause 4 Support At The Cost Of AC: Odyssey

AMD constantly rolls out new drives for its GPU to support upcoming games. This time AMD has rolled out Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition 18.12.1 that brings support for Just Cause 4.

Just cause 4 is just a few days away from launch and AMD has rolled out its Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition 18.12.1 to support it.

AMD didn’t notify what kind of optimizations the driver provides for Just cause 4. It only notes that it brings support for the upcoming game.

While Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition 18.12.1 brings support for Just Cause 4 but, it’s not without its issues. AMD has noted that those with a multi-monitor setup will face mouse lag.

Another issue with the driver causes Assassin’s Creed odyssey to crash at certain locations. However, this only occurs for those playing on Windows 7. So, if you are playing Assassin’s Creed Odyssey then you are going to have to make a choice.

Speaking of the game, developer Avalanche Studios is yet to reveal the map for Just Cause 4. However, Just Cause 4 map has already leaked online, revealing the new playground for Just Cause fans. However, compared to Just Cause 3, the map looks small but, let’s not be hasty and wait for the official comparison.

Just Cause games have always featured an open-world where players can be creative and wreak havoc. Just Cause 4’s world is no exception and devs have noted that Just Cause 4 features the “best open-world sandbox ever”.

We wanted to make the best open-world sandbox ever. We want to be the sandbox that gives the biggest possibility for expression in an open world. We wanted to push our physics to the boundary, and we wanted to get back to a feeling of variety and discovery that I feel we lost a little bit with Just Cause 3.

Just Cause games are all about being creative and destruction. Meaning, Just Cause games didn’t particularly have a focus on the story. However, Just Cause 3 was criticized for its lackluster narrative.

With Just Cause 4, that is all about to change. According to Avalanche Studios, the focus on the narrative is based on the player feedback.

Not only that, the devs have even “stepped up the challenge” with “the enemies, the enemies themselves, the AI – it’s much more advanced. You cannot play the game just standing on the ground; you need to be vertical”.

Just Cause 3 wasn’t an optimized game as the game saw FPS drops on consoles and PC alike. But with Just Cause 4, Avalanche Studios has promised an optimized game on both console and PC.

This means no frequent FPS drops on consoles and the PC gamers will be able to play the game at 4K with acceptable FPS. Here are the Just Cause 4 system requirements.
