It's the second downloadable expansion pack for the game and represents the "land" part of the "Air, Land, Sea expansion pass". On Steam, the DLC is 4.4 GB in size.

It adds the Insula Lacrima island group, which is occupied by the well armed Black Hand. The Black Hand are in possession of a lot of advanced technology and they're planning on something big. It's Rico's job to liberate the area and stop them. Liberating the area also adds a new faction to the game: Former Prisoners of Lacrima/Lacrima Rebels (unofficial names).

See Category:Mech Land Assault for everything it adds.

It's reported here that "The second pack in the Expansion Pass, Land Mech Assault will, will contain another new series of missions that introduce a unique new vehicle that can be carried over into the main game; a heavily armoured mech armed with a gravity gun that allows objects to be picked up and powerfully thrown in any direction. Although the mech is as strong as a tank, it is highly manoeuvrable and agile and behaves unlike anything else in the game."
