Avalanche has released a new major update for Just Cause 4. According to the team, the Spring Update improves world lighting, with global lighting presets being tuned and materials modified to provide better visibility to players and make the world look more vibrant.
The game’s underwhelming lighting system was one of the things we criticized in our PC Performance Analysis, so it’s good witnessing Avalanche enhancing and improving it.
Furthermore, this new patch adds destructible Black Hand Statues and Metal Train Bridges, adds new Mobile Chaos Objects and improves Black Hand combat.
As always, Steam will download this patch the next time you launch its client and you can find its complete changelog below.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
