The biggest game this week and perhaps the most anticipated title remaining for the rest of the year is Just Cause 3. Alongside Rainbow Six: Siege, it’s certainly the last of the major multiplatform titles coming out.
But how good is the performance? I haven’t been able to get my hands on the game just yet, but some technical analysis of the Xbox One version is starting to filter in. And the results are a little eyebrow raising.
YouTuber NX Gamer has gotten ahead of the curve with his technical breakdown of JC3 on Team Green’s console, with his analysis uncovering dips in the frame rate to 17fps and an average frame rate of 27.37fps.
Perhaps the more worrying element, however, were the supposed memory leaks and substantial loading times experienced the longer the game was loaded up. This hasn’t detracted from the enjoyment of the game, of course, although it’s worth noting all the same.
Just Cause 3 officially launches tomorrow, so expect a spate of coverage about it everywhere. It’ll be interesting to see the breakdown of JC3’s performance on other platforms. I’d expect the PC to be the best platform for the amount of explosions and physics-based rendering going on, and it’ll be fun to see how that holds up with a day one patch too.
