The Battle of Steeltown announced, Wasteland 3 story expansion features mechs, level scaling, new quests in an industrial space – coming June 3rd

From Press Release:

Larkspur, Calif. (April 15, 2021) – inXile entertainment and Deep Silver announced today that the award-winning squad-based ARPG Wasteland 3 will see its first narrative expansion DLC content pack, The Battle of Steeltown, coming to the title on June 3, 2021 for both PC and consoles.

The towering factory complex of Steeltown lies in southwest Colorado. Steeltown manufactures all the trucks, armor, weapons, and robots that keeps Colorado running and the Patriarch in power, but deliveries are mixed up, late, or outright missing.

The team of Rangers sent to investigate find the 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 Steeltown 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 fighters 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 and 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 Battle of Steeltown represents not just a fantastic new chapter in Wasteland 3’s story,” says Game Director, David Rogers. “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. For those playing Wasteland 3 for the first time, they’ll be playing the best version of the game. For players coming back to visit Steeltown, they’re in for a treat with new story, characters, and combat mechanics that really change up tactics in challenging new ways.”

The games music’s supervisor, Mary Ramos, along with composer Mark Morgan, have also added their own original scores and post-apocalyptic inspired covers.

Wasteland 3, The Battle of Steeltown, will be available for digital download on June 3, 2021 on PC and Consoles.
