Wasteland 3, the latest role-playing game from inXile Entertainment will get its first solo expansion on June 3. Titled The Battle of Steeltown, the new story-driven content will integrate into the game’s story and add new locations, quests, and gear.
The Battle of Steeltown is set in the towering factory complex of the same name, which manufactures the trucks, armor, weapons, and robots seen in the post-apocalyptic world of Wasteland 3. As the manufacturing complex is hit by bandit raids, players will have to investigate what’s happening and face new robotic enemies alone or in co-op.
Existing Wasteland 3 players can also expect changes to the game's turn-based combat system, with new mechanics including telegraphed attacks, stacking status effects, elemental shields, and non-lethal weapons. The developer also announced that the expansion will be released after the release of the patch 1.4.0 which will introduce “exciting new features."
Wasteland 3 is the first episode in the series to be released since inXile Entertainment joined Xbox Game Studios, and it’s great to see the game getting new content following its August 2020 release. The Battle of Steeltown will be priced at $13.99 on all platforms, but Xbox Game Pass members will get a 10% discount on the Microsoft Store.
