Mech Land Assault, the second DLC pack for Just Cause 3, is out this week for anyone who owns the Air, Land, & Sea Expansion Pass, and next week for those who don’t.
Mech Land Assault takes hero Rico Rodriquez to Lacrima, a brand new island home to an abandoned eDen research base. The island is now the home a prison camp run by the mysterious Black Hand and guarded by powerful mechs. Like all vehicles in Just Cause 3, Rico will be able to pilot these mechs and unleash their Gravitational Remote Influence Projector (GRIP) to attract and hurl objects at enemies. A Force Pulse attack will allow him to smash helicopters out of the sky, or ground pound a tank. Rico can also equip the new Bavarium Power Core rifle, a powerful new energy weapon.
“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,” explained Tobias Andersson, Senior Producer at Avalanche Studios. “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.”
Just Cause 3: Mech Land Assault is out June 3 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC for those who own the Air, Land, & Sea Expansion Pass, and June 10 for everyone else. The Expansion Pass will set you back $24.99, or you can buy the DLC standalone at $11.99. The final DLC pack, Bavarium Sea Heist, is set for release at the end of summer 2016.
