Summary

The first Just Cause game saw rough-around-the-edges agent Rico Rodriguez parachuting into island nation San Esperito to engage in a spot of regime change. Just Cause 2 sees Rico back at it with crazier stunts, more high-flying antics and plenty of chaos to be seeded.

The tropical island of Panau has just seen a new president claw his way into power, and the US government isn't too happy about it. To make matters worse Rico's mentor, Tom Sheldon, looks like he might have gone rogue. Enter Rico!

Just Cause 2 features a massive archipelago to explore. There are over 350 towns, villages, cities and military bases to see and raze. In your mission to cause chaos and unsettle Panau's government you'll need to work with local criminal factions. This will see you touring the different locations to kill colonels, steal goodies and blow lots and lots and lots of things up. You'll go from sandy beaches to snowy mountain tops to a floating brothel. Yes, a floating brothel...

Rico's trusty grappling hook is back, with a few new features to boot. As well as being able to hook onto pretty much anything and reel yourself in, you'll be able to combine it with Rico's seemingly endless supply of parachutes to slingshot yourself into the air. You'll also be able to go on the attack with it. Attach soldiers to passing vehicles (that includes passing planes) and watch chaos ensue! This all adds a vertical element to gameplay that opens up a whole new dimension of combat.

Viva the (US government-sponsored) revolution!
