Can I run Just Cause 2? (Windows 8)

Okay, so I'm running Windows 8 (clearly) and I have:

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 760 2GB Video Card
8 GB of ram

Um, not sure what else you would need to know. I just have heard some people can run it, and some people can not, so I'm just looking for some clarification.

Thanks in advance.

  1. well, this is the system requirements:
    CPU: Dual-core CPU with SSE3 (Athlon 64 X2 4200 / Pentium D 3GHz)
    RAM: 2 GB
    OS: Microsoft Windows Vista/7 (Windows XP is unsupported)
    Video Card: DX10 compatible graphics card with 256 MB of memory (Nvidia GeForce 8800 series/ ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro)
    DirectX version: Microsoft DirectX 10
    Sound Card: Yes
    Free Disk Space: 10GB of free drive space

    I've run it just fine on Windows 8, if your having issues, you can try compatibility mode
  2. So why should you not be able to run it? The hardware is good enough. Find the .exe or the program file for it click properties and select compatibility for windows7

    Now I haven't exactly used my computer at all yet (I haven't yet finished my build completely), but using compatibility mode is something..easy, yes?

    It's system requirements don't include Windows 8, but some people say you can play on Windows 8 :p

    (Sorry for the double post! Not sure if that's a "no-no" on this forum)
  5. When Windows 8 was in developer preview, Just Cause 2 worked fine(seemed to load a bit slow, but it have been early drivers.).
  6. Best answer
    Only use the compatibility mode if you are having problems it is easy if you have too. Some people are playing it with 8 and others are having problems for what ever reason.
  7. I've had no issues with any game in Steam with Windows 8
    I use it for most of my day to day uses (haven't updated my signature thing that says Windows 7)
    But it should work fine... its Windows

    So simply if I have problems, use compatibility mode, if not..well, don't? Sounds good.

    One last thing: It says I have to have DirectX 10. That's just a driver right? I have that, I think. I should have that? I think I have that. Help, I'm not smart. Also, I don't have a sound card, would that be a problem, or would the sound just be bad?
  9. It is a part of Windows Vista/7/8. You are good. Have fun and destroy everything you can :)

    If you have it from steam, Steam will ensure you have any needed software installed on the games first run as well.
  10. Yes you should have that or better DX11 which is backwards compatible with it. Your onboard sound qualifies as sound card.
  11. Thank you guys again for all of your help :D

    Muchly appreciated, and yes, I said muchly.
