Glitchy Just Cause 3? AMD Video Card? Try Beta Drivers
A deep, dark hole
Just Cause 3 [official site] is pretty great, you might've heard our man John Walker say. He's been all over the parachuting, wingsuiting, exploding, exploring, and kissing a cow (we've all coughed politely and pretended our phones were ringing every time he mentioned the cow-kissing - boy has he ever mentioned the cow-kissing!), but some folks with AMD/ATI video cards are suffering graphical glitches. They're finding nasty big holes in the ground, jagged polygons littering the landscape.
Switching to new beta drivers might fix it, and publishers Square Enix say they're working with AMD on a driver update.
Squeenix's Jason Walker explains:
"There are some known issues that occur with the most recent official release AMD/ATi graphics card drivers. We're working with AMD to fix the issue via an upcoming official driver update - however to ensure you don't experience these issues yourself right now please make sure you are using the latest beta driver available here (they are dated 11/30/2015 Version 15.11.1)"
You'll find those over here for 64-bit versions of Windows 7, 8, and 10. If you're using a different version of Windows... do you even have a PC able to play Just Cause 3? That's a bit unkind, but I am curious. Steam's hardware survey shows only a small percentage of folks are still on 32-bit operating systems. I mean, AMD do still do drivers for 32-bit Windows 7 so you can nab those if you need them, I'm curious is all.
However, a few folks are saying that the new beta drivers didn't fix the terrainangles for them. Worth a shot though, eh?
