In the game, the player assumes the role of series protagonist Rico Rodríguez who arrives in the fictional nation of Solís to take down The Black Hand, the world's biggest private military.

The player assumes the role of series protagonist Rico Rodríguez. The game takes place in the fictional nation of Solís, a large open world consisting of different biomes including snowy mountains and deserts.
Rico can travel the game's world using his wing suit and grappling hook, whose functions are expanded to include the ability to attach hot air balloons and rocket boosters on objects. A new wind and particle system was introduced, and it affects Rico's traversal with his wing suit.
The game also features a weather system and environmental hazards such as tornados and thunderstorms. The game features a large variety of vehicles and firearms, including exotic weapons like the Wind Gun and the Lightning Gun.
Players can call for supply drop any time in the game. During combat, he may be assisted by allies who are controlled by artificial intelligence.
The game includes a frontline system in which the rebel forces fight against the Black Hand army at the borders of their territories. The game is set in a fictional South American country called Solís, which is home to extreme weather conditions.
Rico Rodríguez takes on the Black Hand, the world's most powerful private army run by Gabriela Morales, a newly introduced character. The Black Hand served as a mercenary group to dictators Salvador Mendoza of Suitcase and Sebastiano Di Ravel lo in Suitcase 3.
When Rico is shown evidence that his late father was working with The Black Hand, he plunges into the South American nation of Solís, the homeland of the Black Hand in search of answers. After the events of Suitcase 3, Rico Rodríguez is approached by Mira Morales, a native of Solís, who convinces him to come to Solís to uncover the truth about Project Llama, a project aimed at creating weather cores able to control the weather and generate storms, and one which Rico's father, Miguel Rodríguez, had a part in creating.
The project is run by the incumbent Solís leader, Oscar Espinosa, who maintains tight control over the people of Solís. After a failed attempt at deposing Espinosa, and a run-in with his private army, the Black Hand, which is led by Gabriela Morales, Rico forms an army of his own with Mira, named the 'Army of Chaos', aimed at taking down Project Llama and ending Espinosa's regime.
Along the way, he meets up with Luis “Sargent”, an eager commander of the Army of Chaos; Izzy, a hacker; Garland King, a filmmaker obsessed with filming stunts in Solís; and Java Huerta, an archeologist wishing to uncover the history behind Solís and the Espinosa legacy. As Rico sets out to destroy the four prototype weather cores being tested in Solís, he also meets up with Lanka Morales, Mira's uncle and a scientist who worked on Project Llama; César Pedro ne, a former pilot turned conspiracy theorist; and Tom Sheldon, Rico's old handler at the Agency.
Soon, it is revealed that years ago, Miguel, together with Lanka, and Espinosa's father, Leon Espinosa, worked on the project with the aim of controlling the weather for the good of the people. However, Espinosa, convinced that his father was wasting his family’s money on the project, took over after his father's sudden death and intended to weaponize Llama’s technology and research to sell to the highest bidder.
Miguel, disgusted by the idea, left the project, but Espinosa used his control of Sebastiano Di Ravel lo in Medici and connections with the Agency to kill Miguel, before proceeding to imprison Lanka to force him to continue working on the project. After Rico succeeds in destroying the four weather cores, and the Army takes over Espinosa's main base, Espinosa reveals that he has already created a perfected weather core that combines all four of the weather cores' abilities and is intending to sell it to the Agency for trillions of dollars.
As Espinosa leaves in a jet and the weather core is poised to strike both the Army and the Black Hand at his main base, Rico, along with Gabriela, who turns against Espinosa after she realizes that he is sacrificing her army for his gain, gains control of the core, and drives it into Espinosa's jet, killing him and ending his regime. As the Army of Chaos is celebrating their victory, Rico reveals that he and his father were just 'pawns in a larger game', and that everything 'always comes back to the Agency'.
With that reasoning, Rico suggests attacking the Agency next, and both Sheldon and Mira agree to join him in his attack. JustCause4 was developed by Avalanche Studios and published by Square Unix.
The new technology allows the game to feature diverse and extreme weather effects, including blizzards, sandstorms, tornadoes and more. These changes were intended to make non-player characters smarter so that they behave more tactically and pose more of a threat to the player.
Other improvements to the game engine include physics-based rendering and a new animation system. The game was announced during Microsoft's press conference at E3 2018, and also appeared later at Square Unix's showcase and the PC Gaming Show.
The game was released for PlayStation 4, Windows, and Xbox One on December 4, 2018. Dare Devils of Destruction, released on April 30, 2019, introduced weaponized vehicles and challenge modes.
The second DLC, Los Demons, which sees Rico defending Solís against an invading demonic force, was released on July 3, 2019. The last DLC named Danger Rising, which features new missions against the Agency and adds a hoverboard, was released on September 5, 2019.
Aggregate scoreAggregatorScore Meta critic PC: 68/100PS4: 65/100XONE: 70/100 Edit on Wikidata The game received mixed reviews from critics.
While the open-world gameplay, controls, graphics and soundtrack were praised, its story, mission design, cutscenes and voice acting were criticized. The game was also heavily criticized by users who noted the game's regression in graphics quality relative to past installments in the series, in particular pointing out the greatly simplified water effects and flat-looking vegetation.
This led to Square Unix developing a patch in an attempt to alleviate these complaints, with partial success. The PlayStation 4 version of JustCause4 sold 16,100 copies within its first week on sale in Japan, which placed it at number seven on the all format video game sales chart.
During a financial briefing session, Square Unix explained that JustCause4 had sold fewer copies than expected, and that the number of copies sold did not cover the development costs. Square Unix President Yoke Matsuda also cited the slow sales of JustCause4 as a significant reason for the company’s low operating income in 2018.
