A cinematic first trailer for forthcoming open world action-adventure video game Just Cause 3 has been released.

While the clip doesn’t feature any in-game footage, it does showcase a lot of great fire-based artwork as Torre Florim’s cover of The Prodigy’s Firestarter appropriately scores the piece.

Best of all, however, is the incredibly detailed animation on the face of series hero Rico Rodriguez that closes the trailer.

Produced by Square Enix and Avalanche Studios, Just Cause 3 is scheduled to be released later this year on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows. Set in the fictitious Mediterranean island republic of Medici, Rodriguez must liberate his homeland from the rule of General Di Ravello. According to its official website, the game will feature more than 400 sq miles of open world terrain.
