As we reported last month, the first expansion for Just Cause 3 is slated to bring “ new missions, features, and other exciting surprises to the skies of Medici,”.

Well, the emphasis on sky combat is certainly evident in the new trailer just released by Avalanche Studios. Appropriately titled Sky Fortress. The trailer features a clean, militaristic sky fortress, and Rico in a new wingsuit with some added features.

The sky fortress spews out drones and drop pods into the sky and onto the ground, while a female voice rings out across the land from loudspeakers, announcing the imminent enslavement of all below. Rico flips, glides, and grapples between them, aided by his new wingsuit.

The new wingsuit features an enhanced booster jet, shoulder-mounted machine guns, Bavarium Splitter assault rifle, missiles, and its own defense drone.

The Sky Fortress DLC will be available in March on PC, Xbox One, and PS4 for $11.99. Those who purchased the season pass will be able to play the DLC a week early.

Beyond the Sky Fortress DLC, more gadgets and gimmicks will be introduced in the next DLC, Land Mech Assault. As is probably easy to guess, it will introduce a land mech for Rico which he can pilot even in the main game. The mech features a Half Life 2 inspired gravity gun and is very agile despite being laden with heavy armor.

No release date has been set for the Land Mech Assault DLC, but we will be reporting on it as soon as more details become available.
