Avalanche Detail Upcoming Improvements For Just Cause 4

The Just Cause series and the chaos you can wreak in those games has often pushed hardware to the limits. Just Cause 4 is no different, but Avalanche worked hard to try and improve on Just Cause 3’s troublesome performance issues on console.

We’re putting together an analysis of the game on PS4 for a little later today, but Avalanche are already hard at work to respond to the most common points of criticism and requests that they’re seeing. In particular, consoles will get an option to turn off the excessive smear of motion blur, in addition to improvements to the blurring if you keep it turned on, and Avalanche are targeting more general improvements to visual quality.

Here’s an overview of what they’re working on, with release planned for the next few weeks:

Xbox One & PS4

  • Fixes to some motion blur rendering issues
  • Add a motion blur toggle to the options menu (following user requests)
  • Improvements to the overall visual quality on both Xbox One and PS4
  • Fixes to some texture mapping issues
  • Other graphical improvements, such as smoother vegetation transitions
  • Various stability fixes
  • Lighting updates to some cut scenes


  • Improvements to menu navigation for mouse and keyboard users
  • Support for remapping of movement keys
  • Improved vegetation rendering and asset updates
  • Fixes to some texture mapping issues
  • Increased mouse sensitivity range
  • Corrected specialised vehicle support for mouse and keyboard players
  • Fixed issue with steering flying vehicles with keyboard
  • Numerous stability fixes
