Avalanche Recognizes Just Cause 4 Issues, Outlines Planned PS4, Xbox One, and PC Updates

Just Cause 4 has issues. Avalanche has issued a statement saying they are currently working to fix them.

Just Cause 4 released only two days ago, but the game already has a “mostly negative” rating on Steam from more than 1,400 reviews. Scrolling through the reviews and looking at the comments reveals that many players are primarily dissatisfied with the state of the game’s graphics, as well as its overall performance.

As laid out in our PC evaluation of the game, Just Cause 4 does suffer from some rather unfortunate graphic miscues, including severe pop-in, inconsistent rendering, and “potato-tier” cutscenes, the latter of which should have been fixed at launch but still remain two days on.

However, as we’ve found out from various colleagues and other players, those graphics issues are also found in the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game as well. 

On top of those issues, and perhaps much more distressing, is that Just Cause 4 also has numerous stability issues, making the game difficult to play. 

In response to player feedback, Avalanche Studios New York has issued a statement regarding the release state of the game: 

Hello Everyone,

Firstly, we want to say a huge thank you to everyone who has supported Just Cause 4 to date. We’re a small but very passionate team here at Avalanche Studios New York, and each and every one of us has put our hearts into this project for the past three years.

Due to the complexity of Just Cause 4’s vast open world and advanced physics systems we understand that a number of you are experiencing various technical issues. Even though the game has now launched, this is just the start of our continued support on Just Cause 4. We are actively monitoring your feedback very closely and have a team of engineers at Avalanche Studios working hard on updating and improving the game. Once these fixes have been through internal and first party tests then we’ll be rolling them out ASAP.

In good news, we are already planning to release the first wave of improvements and aiming to have these available to everyone in the next couple of weeks. 

Although we currently don’t have a solid release date for Just Cause 4‘s upcoming patches outside of “the next couple of weeks”, we do know that they will focus on the game’s graphics, specifically lighting, texture mapping, motion blur, vegetation rendering, and transitions. 

For PC players in particular, Avalanche will work to fix problems with menu navigation for mouse and keyboard, movement key remapping, and various vehicle issues. 

Just Cause 4 is the latest release in the Just Cause franchise and features a brand-new Apex engine. It is currently available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
