Continuing their work on Just Cause 3 into 2016, Square Enix and Avalanche Studios have provided details on the “AIR, LAND & SEA Expansion Pass” being offered for the open-world adventure game. This pass will first of all provide players access to related content a week in advance to the standalone DLC going on sale.
The first content pack included with this pass, Sky Fortress, is set to launch next month on each the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC platforms. Sky Fortress contains a brand new set of missions which 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 is titled Land Mech Assault. This pack 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 third and final pack, staying true to the “Air, Land & Sea” title will be titled Bavarium Sea Heist. More information on this will be shared at a later date.
In terms of pricing, the “Air, Land & Sea Expansion Pass” can be purchased for $24.99 / €24.99 / £19.99. This is compared to the cost of standalone DLC which comes at $11.99 / €11.99 / £9.49 apiece.

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.”
