Just Cause 3 Mech DLC trailer gives Rico his own super fighting robot

Just Cause 3 (opens in new tab)'s Mech Land Assault DLC (opens in new tab) is out today for season pass owners, and there's really only one thing you need to know about it: Rico Rodriguez can pilot a SUPER FIGHTING ROBOT (opens in new tab), and he can keep it.

The DLC campaign actually takes place on its own dedicated island called Lacrima, which was specifically built for wreaking havoc with gravity-gun toting mechs. But once you finish up there you'll still be able to pilot the two mech types back in Medici, and even start a mini 'Mech Lance (opens in new tab) with a Rebel pilot if you somehow manage to get outgunned.

If you don't own the season pass, you can pick up Mech Land Assault starting on June 10 for $11.99 / £9.49. The third and final part of the Just Cause 3 Season Pass, Bavarium Sea Heist, will be released by the end of the summer… though turbo-charged jet skis or whatever that pack ends up adding could have a difficult time following jetpacks (opens in new tab) and mechs. Just saying.
