Just Cause 3: Bavarium Sea Heist launches this week with new weapons

Did somebody say lightning gun?

Square Enix has announced that the 3rd and final DLC pack for Just Cause 3, the Bavarium Sea Heist, will launch this week for pass holders on August 11th. Those who do not own the pass will need to wait an additional week for August 18th. Marcus Andrews, the Lead Designer for the DLC at Avalanche, spoke about the pack by saying

Our aim with the Air, Land & Sea Expansion Pass was to completely alter the way players tackle the game and we’ve achieved just that. Each of the three packs of new tools allows the player to wreak havoc in fresh, creative, and unique ways that ensures both new and existing fans of Just Cause 3 will have hours of additional content and an enormous number of ways to approach any situation”.

Rico will be able to use a brand new rocket boat, Bavarium powered of course, as well as trying to take out the brand new Eden Spark lightning gun from the Eden Corporation, their greatest weapon yet. You'll need to get into the Stingray, the research facility in the game's new exploreable area in order to finally bring down Eden once and for all. The pack includes some new features, including

  • Liberate the Medici coastal waters of Scolio, home to Eden Research stations and the mysterious “Stingray” base.
  • Drive the deadly rocket boat “Loochador”, using its multi-lock missile launchers and miniguns to defeat the formidable Black Hand Fleet.
  • Infiltrate the Stingray base to steal the deadly “Eden Spark” lightning gun and unleash elemental death on your enemies in all new storyline and missions.
  • Power up the Eden Spark further with mods earned in the “Boat Invader” challenge.

It will only cost $5.99, cheaper than the other packs, or free with the $24.99 season pass.
