The second part of the planned Just Cause 3 Air, Land, Sea Expansions, Mech Land Assault is ready to blast its way into Medici. The DLC will release June 3 for Expansion Pass holders and on June 10 for individual purchase.
“Mech Land Assault takes Rico Rodriguez to the new island of Lacrima, home to an abandoned eDen research base and a prison camp run by the mysterious Black Hand,” Avalanche teases in a press release.
“Defended by huge powerful Mechs, Rico will need the new Bavarium Power Core rifle to disable their shields and hijack them. Once inside, Rico can use their powerful cannons and the GRIP Gravity Guns to hurl and smash the enemy into pieces.”
The DLC will introduce the ability to pilot two different types of Mechs anywhere in the game. They come complete with new weapons that will let you pull helicopters out of the air and even ground pound tanks. And of course there will even be new challenge arenas in which you can put your Mech skills to the test.
“The Bavarium Wingsuit from the Sky Fortress DLC fundamentally changed how Rico could traverse Medici. This time, we wanted to shake up how Rico interacts with his environment in a similar way,” Senior Producer Tobias Andersson explains.
“The new Mechs allow Rico to throw enemies, vehicles and chaos objects around like tennis balls – increasing the scope for physics-based fun. Whether you’re juggling a small car or punching helicopters out of the sky, the Mechs give you the opportunity to mess with your surroundings in creative, explosive ways.”
While the Air, Land, Sea Expansion Pass will grab you all three of the Just Cause 3 planned expansions for $24.99, Mech Land Assault will be available on its own for $11.99. The third piece of DLC, Bavarium Sea Heist, is due out at the end of summer.
