After his rescue from imprisonment and torture at the hands of the new government he helped to put into power in his homeland, Rico led a small army of about two thousand men and women against his former allies, the Black Hand, and the mysterious EDEN Corporation. The numbers seemed hopeless, but he did not give up hope.
He could never quit that easily.
In the end? They did it. They won. Manuela is dead, the Black Hand has been forced out of the country, and the EDEN Corporation's technology is under control. While much of the technology has been given to the Medician military under Rico's guidance, and other rare pieces are in his hands, Tom Sheldon made off with some Bavarium shielding for the Agency, effectively betraying Rico's interests yet again.
"I will admit, I am awesome."
A new storm is brewing on the horizon now, and Rico will face his greatest challenge yet...
