Avalanche Studios is ringing in the New Year by preparing Just Cause 3 fans for the game’s first major expansion pack, Sky Fortress.
Said to be “nearing completion,” the developer took to Steam to post a comprehensive update on post-launch plans for the open-world actioner, and Sky Fortress will jump-start that wave of extras with new features and a host of new ways to light up the skies of Medici. Acting as the first of three planned expansions arriving under the Land, Sea, Air season pass, here’s an update from the Just Cause 3 team.
“For those of you who picked up the XL Edition, or for anyone interested in the Air, Land and Sea Expansion Pass we announced earlier last year, we’ve got some exciting news for you all,” Square Enix said in an update on the game’s Steam page. “Whilst one side of the studio is working on patches, fixes and optimisations for the game, which will continue to roll out over the coming weeks, the other side is busily bringing this additional content to life.
“The first pack – ‘Sky Fortress’ which is the ‘Air’ pack, is nearing completion, and will bring new missions, features and other exciting surprises to the skies of Medici. We’re play testing this content right now so watch this space for more news on this very soon.”
But additional content wasn’t the only topic of conversation in Avalanche’s update, who pointed to support pages for both EU and NA should users experience any glitches or problems in the game. As our review noted, Just Cause 3‘s open world is hamstrung by performance issues, though the studio assured players that fixes and extra patches are inbound.
No word yet on a release for Just Cause 3‘s Sky Fortress add-on, though it appears to be imminent.
