Culture and personality drip from every aspect of the island, but the dictator Anton Castillo looms over, harassing citizens with a loyal military guarding checkpoints and patrolling the streets.
The oppressed island was four years in the making by developer Ubisoft before it will finally be revealed to gamers on October 7th and will be available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Stadia.
