The Battle of Steeltown rages on in first story expansion for Wasteland 3 today

From Press Release:

Larkspur, Calif. (June 9, 2021) – Today inXile entertainment and Deep Silver are pleased to announce that the first story expansion for the award-winning RPG Wasteland 3 – ‘The Battle of Steeltown’ – is now available digitally on PC, Xbox One, and PS4. ‘The Battle of Steeltown’ DLC has an MSRP of $13.99.

About ‘The Battle of Steeltown’:

The towering factory complex of Steeltown manufactures all the tech that keeps Colorado running and the Patriarch in power—trucks, armor, weapons, and robots. But deliveries from Steeltown have stopped cold, and all the Patriarch is getting from Abigail Markham—Steeltown’s leader—are excuses.

When he sends the Rangers to investigate, they find the place is a powder keg with the fuse already lit. The workers are striking, bandits raid with impunity, and nobody is allowed through the gates, not even on the business of the Patriarch. Without help, Steeltown could crash and burn for good, and take Markham with it, but maybe that’s just what it needs.

Features:

  • Traverse the Steeltown manufacturing complex alone or in co-op in this epic narrative expansion. Take on challenging new quests, face off against new robotic enemies, and solve the mystery at the heart of Steeltown however you see fit.
  • Tactical combat is taken to new heights with new mechanics like devastating telegraphed attacks, stacking status effects, elemental shields, and non-lethal weapons—letting you solve Steeltown’s skirmishes in brand new ways.
  • Combat and gear scaling means that both new and returning players can enter Steeltown during their playthroughs for a level-appropriate challenge, with a story and cast of characters that adapt to the decisions you’ve already made.
  • The Battle of Steeltown expands the base game with new enemies, weapons, armor, world map encounters, and crafting recipes.
  • The Battle of Steeltown expands the base game with new enemies, weapons, armor, and world map encounters.
  • Music Supervisor Mary Ramos and Composer Mark Morgan return with original scores and new post-apocalyptic inspired covers.

“The Battle of Steeltown represents not just a fantastic new chapter in Wasteland 3’s story full of choice, consequence, and Wasteland 3’s unique brand of humor,” says game director, David Rogers. “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. They’ll also see characters and stories they started in the base game make an appearance, with new interactions for everyone’s favorite foul-mouthed parrot, Santa’s Elves “Where Are They Now?” and more. All of this is complemented with incredible new post-apocalyptic music.”

‘The Battle of Steeltown’ is also available as part of the new Wasteland 3 Expansion Pass, available on PC, Xbox One, and PS4, which gives access to two DLCs: expanding on the base game’s locations, characters, combat, and systems, as well as the Rangers’ overall mission while in Colorado.
