Avalanche Studios and Square Enix have released the first cinematic trailer for anticipated sandbox sequel Just Cause 3.

The CG trailer takes us through the destructive mind of series hero Rico Rodriguez before showing the hero take flight through the game's fictional Mediterranean locale, an island called Medici.

Torre Florim provides the scintilating cover of The Progidy's Firestarter. Florim is the front-man for popular Dutch rock group De Staat, and his cover can be listened to in full below.

Just Cause 3 was revealed in the November issue of US gaming magazine Game Informer, and will be released later this year - five years after its successful predecessor, which has become something of a cult classic.

Rico Rodriguez returns to take on brutal dictator General Di Ravello, who rules Medici with an iron fist.

Just Cause has proven popular because of its wanton destruction and disregard for the laws of physics - after all, why let gravity spoil the fun? Developers Avalanche have confirmed that the grapple hook and parachute, which aid Rico in his escapades, will return.

Game Informer provided in-depth coverage of the game's reveal last year, including a video delving behind the scenes, which you can watch below.

Just Cause 3 is set for release in late 2015 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
