Square Enix today announced Mech Land Assault, the second content pack from the Air, Land and Sea Expansion Pass will be available June 3rd for Pass Holders, with a wider release confirmed for June 10th.
Mech Land Assault takes Rico Rodriguez to the new island of Lacrima, home to an abandoned eDen research base and a prison camp run by the mysterious Black Hand. Defended by huge powerful Mechs, Rico will need the new Bavarium Power Core rifle to disable their shields and hijack them. Once inside, Rico can use their powerful cannons and the GRIP Gravity Guns to hurl and smash the enemy into pieces.
The Bavarium Wingsuit from the Sky Fortress DLC fundamentally changed how Rico could traverse Medici. This time, we wanted to shake up how Rico interacts with his environment in a similar way,” explained Tobias Andersson, Senior Producer at Avalanche Studios. “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.”
The Mech Land Assault pack is priced at $11.99/€11.99/£9.49 whilst the Air, Land and Sea Expansion Pass is available for $24.99/€24.99/£19.99. The final content pack – Bavarium Sea Heist will be released by the end of summer 2016, released one week early to Expansion Pass holders.
