Sky Fortress will be available on March 8 for players who purchased the Air, Land and Sea expansion pass, and March 15 for everyone else.
The DLC will follow Rico as he takes on the eDen corporation, a dangerous new force controlled from a heavily armoured Sky Fortress, which explains the name.
eDen has deployed a “deadly army of robotic drones” to destroy you, providing the tropical setting of Just Cause 3 with a fun sci-fi twist.
Sky Fortress will equip Rico Rodriguez with a new “Bavarium Wingsuit,” complete with shoulder-mounted machine guns and homing missiles.

The new wingsuit and weapons can all be brought into the main game, if you fancy wreaking havoc on home turf.
“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,” senior producer Tobias Andersson said.
“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.”
This will be the first of three paid expansions for Just Cause 3, with two more to launch before the end of Summer 2016.
