The game is set on Yara, a fictional Caribbean island inspired by Cuba, ruled as a dictatorship by “El Presidente” Antón Castillo, voiced and modelled after Giancarlo Esposito, who is raising his son Diego, voiced by Anthony Gonzalez, to follow in his rule. The player takes the role of a guerrilla fighter attempting to topple Castillo and his regime.
