Just Cause 2 was more or less renowned for its open world that let you just run riot in. In fact, I know a ton of people who adored the game, but very few who completed the story. That aspect always felt a little lacklustre and distracted from the fun of causing destruction around the world.

This new trailer is the best indication of a 'story' we have seen so far, as it runs through a condensed play through of a mission. It's pretty neat.
