Wasteland 3’s first story DLC has been announced. The Battle of Steeltown is headed to the squad-based RPG on June 3 for PC and consoles.
The Battle of Steeltown takes players to … Steeltown, which is the southwest Colorado facility where trucks, armor, weapons, and robots are made. However, something is wrong, so you and your squad go there to find out what’s going on.
“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,” reads a line from the expansion’s description. “But maybe that’s not such a bad thing? You and your team of Rangers will need to decide that for yourself.”
The Battle of Steeltown is playable solo or in co-op, and the expansion features new quests that challenge players to take on new robot enemies. New mechanics have been added as well, including stacking status effects, elemental shields, telegraphed attacks, and non-lethal weapons. The expansion also has more weapon and armor.
“Full of choice, consequence, and Wasteland 3’s unique brand of humor, it’s also a culmination of all the hard work we’ve put into the game since launch,” game director David Rogers said in a release.
The Battle of Steeltown also includes new music and post-apocalyptic inspired covers. The expansion costs $14 USD, but Xbox Game Pass subscribers can get it for 10% off.
Developer inXile said it will announce more details on the specifics of what’s new in The Battle of Steeltown in the weeks ahead. You can watch a trailer for The Battle of Steeltown here on YouTube.
