Although the release date of Just Cause 3 Mech Land Assault DLC was rumored to be June 10, 2016 i.e. only a week from now, it looks like the expansion will make the fans wait a little more after all.
The developers had promised a summer release for the downloadable content pack and with the release of the new ESRB trailer of the game, they have not only reiterated that but also pointed out that Mech Land Assault will release at the end of summer 2016, and one week before that to Expansion Pass holders.
Avalanche Studios has given us a look at the gameplay in the trailer above as well as an insight into the new location, the island of Lacrima, where Rico will be “causing chaotic destruction in brand new, gravity-defying ways.”
In Lacrima, Rico is going to take on Black Hand in the eDEN Research Base and the prison camp located on the island. There will be Mechs, there will be shields and there will be the new Bavarium Power Core rifle that you will use to disable and then hack the Mechs… and use them.
