The game will be set in the sun-drenched Mediterranean island republic of Medici, a land crumbling under the ruthless rule of General Di Ravello. It has been confirmed that the island of Medici is actually the home island of Rico.The map size has been confirmed to be similar to that of the setting of Just Cause 2 with 1,000 square kilometres being dedicated for the new setting. However, its volumetric terrain has increased to allow more verticality – as a result of this, it is now possible for the player to explore subterranean caverns (a new feature) and to scale buildings more effectively and realistically.

It has also been confirmed that Just Cause 2‍ 's signature features – the grappling hook and parachute – will be re-appearing with improved mechanics. The focus on mayhem and exaggerated physics will also remain, along with a new wingsuit.

"We’re pretty excited to share the world’s first look at the gameplay of Just Cause 3 with all of you here on PlayStation.Blog. Every explosion in the trailer pretty much speaks for itself, but before you hit the play button, there’s really only one thing you need to know: this is 100% gameplay, captured using cinematic camera angles. There is no scripting or staging, and you’re not watching cut scenes. Got it? Okay, now you can hit play."
