In a game where you can glide around an island blowing up bridges just to see cars fall into the sea, you have to question what else the developers can add to make doing that job a lot easier. You already have access to helicopters, tanks and explosives, but you don’t have a gravity-gun wielding mech, at least you didn’t until this week. Avalanche Studios have introduced Mech Land Assault to Just Cause 3, finally giving players another option to destroy everything in sight.
Here’s what Tobias Andersson, Senior Producer at Avalanche Studios had to say about the new mechs: "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."
This new DLC adds a small military research base for players to infiltrate. The mechs are located on the military base, but you’ll need to use a special energy rifle designed to disable their shields. One you’ve disabled the shields you’ll be in control of one of these destructive mechs.
Right now, the only way to access this DLC is to pay for the Air, Land and Sea Expansion Pass. You can buy it onfor £19.99/$24.99 on Steam. If you’ve decided you don’t care about the Air or Sea expansions, you can choose to purchase the Land section for £9.49 / $11.99 next week.
