Just Cause 2 is an open world action-adventure video game developed by Avalanche Studios, published by Eidos Interactive and distributed by Square Enix. Just Cause 2 employs the Avalanche Engine 2.0, an updated version of the engine used in the original Just Cause game.
The game is set on the fictional island of Panau, an island located in the south-east of Asia. Panau has varied terrain, from desert to alpine to rainforest. Rico Rodriguez returns as the protagonist, aiming to overthrow the evil dictator Pandak “Baby” Panay and confront his former mentor, Tom Sheldon.
