Just Cause 3's Engine can support DirectX 12 - Update incoming?


According to GDC's schedule Just Cause 3's Engine can already support DirectX 12, hinting that a DirectX 12 update is incoming and that it will also bring additional visual fidelity. 

The description states the Intel and Avalanche has been working closely in order to optimize the games graphics for their iris Pro graphics and make use of DirectX 12's features in order to improve performance. 


   During the development of the game, Intel and Avalanche have been working closely together to optimize the game on Iris graphics, but also to make use of DX12's features to improve the performance even further as well as bring additional visual quality to the game!
This session will cover the changes Avalanche made to their engine to match DX12's pipeline, the implementation process and best practices from DX12. We'll also showcase and discuss the PC exclusive features enabled thanks to DX12 such as Ordered Independent Transparency, and G-buffer blending using Raster Ordered Views and light assignment for clustered shading using Conservative Rasterization.


Just Cause 3's Engine can support DirectX 12 - Update incoming?  

While a lot of DirectX 12's new features have been used, there is no mention of Asynchronous compute being used, so it looks like Just Cause 3 will not be not making use of full DirectX 12 feature set, though it may just be missing fromthe description as Intel Graphics currently do not support it.

I hope so. If only for the Crossfire support.Quote

It'll be interesting to see if the implementation of dx12 with graphical enhancment does anything for multi gpu, or if AMD/NVIDIA will need to do some driver work. Because I doubt intel is going to be helping get the avalanche engine playing nicely with multi gpu setupsQuote

Yes bring on dx12.Quote

I doubt much visual improvement would take place outside of additional effects and NPCs. It would probably offer more performance. Unless they have been working on it for some time then we may be surprised at what they will show off to usQuote

Why would they bother? Unless they are trying to entice the people who haven't played it yet, but those with the interest and capable hardware would have by now.

It's a great game and I've completed the storyline, not but I'm not sure if I'd replay it even with a graphical bump in quality.Quote
