According to the very brief plot synopsis that is currently available, players have apparently been sent on the island in order to search for a missing billionaire. Unfortunately, the significance of the billionaire and the reason for why he was lost is yet to be revealed so players will just have to join in on the adventure once it releases to find out.

Based on the many gameplay sneak peeks that have been shown though, we can surmise that the combat, crafting, and the environment will largely be similar to the previous installment.
