Sky Fortress, the first expansion for Just Cause 3, will be available to Expansion Pass owners on March 8, with everyone else able to purchase it on March 15 for $11.99/€11.99/£9.49 (the Expansion Pass is $24.99/€24.99/£19.99). The remaining expansions are scheduled to arrive before the end of summer 2016.

Here’s what you get with Sky Fortress:

SKY FORTRESS contains a brand new set of missions that introduce a new threat – the eDEN Corporation and their huge and terrifying Sky Fortress, with its 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, all of which can be carried over into the main game.

Avalanche Studios Senior Producer Tobias Andersson said, “The new content will fundamentally alter how our players approach the game – we’re really looking forward to seeing how fans adapt to the new Wingsuit. The new story missions, challenges and gadgets that can be taken into the main game really mix things up, and we can’t wait for players to revisit Medici and start getting even more creative.”
