Publisher Deep Silver and developer inXile Entertainment have announced the first expansion for Wasteland 3 called “The Battle of Steeltown.”
The expansion will launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on June 3. Players will be able to take on new quests, fight new enemies, and play the whole expansion solo or in co-op.
In southwest Colorado lies the towering factory complex of Steeltown, which manufactures all the tech that keeps Colorado running and the Patriarch in power; trucks, armor, weapons, and robots.
But deliveries are mixed up, late, or outright missing, and investigating Rangers find the industrial complex in disarray. Striking workers, bandit raids… not to mention the gates are locked tight. Without help, the area will revolt and take Steeltown’s leader—Abigail Markham—with it. But maybe that’s not such a bad thing; you and your team of Rangers will need to decide that for yourself.
Players can explore the complex in solo or co-op mode, taking on new quests and facing a horde of new robotic enemies.
New mechanics have also been added to the tactical combat—stacking status effects, elemental shields, telegraphed attacks, and non-lethal weapons—giving fights a new dimension and allowing players to solve battles in brand new ways.
These new elements will also expand into the base game, along with new weapons, armor, encounters, giving the game a whole new experience and, depending on how far they’ve already progressed, will scale the combat and gear when entering Steeltown ensuring level-appropriate challenges.
The games music’s supervisor, Mary Ramos, along with composer Mark Morgan have also added their own original scores and post-apocalyptic inspired covers.
