Taking place several years after Just Cause 2, you again play as Rico Rodriguez. Returning to your home country of Medici, a fictional island in the Med sea, you discover that a vicious dictator, General Di Ravello, has taken control of Medici. And from there unfolds the special kind of devastation that only Rico can deliver. A one man wrecking ball, armed with guns and a grappling hook.
