The first Just Cause 3 content pack called “SKY FORTRESS” was announced by Square Enix earlier this week and is launching March 2016 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Owners of the “Air, Land & Sea” Expansion Pass will be able to play it a week before is goes on sale as a standalone download.
Tobias Andersson, Senior Producer at Avalanche Studios:
“If Just Cause 3 is over-the-top action then the Air, Land and Sea Expansion pass aims to stand on its shoulders and reach even higher. An incredible amount of time has been spent ensuring every new item is fully integrated into the main game and can be used during existing missions. Rico’s new Bavarium Wingsuit will fundamentally alter the core gameplay of Just Cause 3 and we can’t wait to see the crazy stunts that players perform with it.”
“Sky Fortress” is the Air element of the expansion and contains a brand new set of missions that introduce a new threat – a huge and terrifying Sky Fortress and an army of deadly robotic drones. To tackle his deadly new adversary, Rico Rodriguez will use a new upgradeable, rocket-powered, weaponised ‘Bavarium Wingsuit’ fitted with shoulder mounted machine guns and auto targeting missiles – alongside his new ‘Eviction’ personal defence drone and ‘Bavarium Splitter’ assault rifle.
The second pack in the Expansion Pass, “Land Mech Assault” will contain another new series of missions that introduce a unique new vehicle that can be carried over into the main game; a heavily armoured mech armed with a gravity gun that allows objects to be picked up and powerfully thrown in any direction. Although the mech is as strong as a tank, it is highly manoeuvrable and agile and behaves unlike anything else in the game.
The AIR, LAND & SEA Expansion Pass concludes with the “Bavarium Sea Heist” details of which will be revealed in the following months. We don’t have any more information for you right now but will update and post as soon as we get it. While you’re waiting though, take a look at the trailer for this expansion. KABOOM!
The SKY FORTRESS pack will be priced at $11.99 / €11.99 / £9.49 whilst the AIR, LAND & SEA Expansion Pass is available for $24.99 / €24.99 / £19.99. All three content packs will be available before the end of summer 2016 and released one week early to Expansion Pass holders.
