Second expansion, Cult of the Holy Detonation arrives in October for Wasteland 3, Colorado Collection available same day

From Press Release:

Larkspur, Calif. (August 24, 2021) – With gamescom and the one-year anniversary of Wasteland 3 right around the corner, inXile entertainment and Prime Matter are proud to announce the second and final DLC expansion for Wasteland 3 – Cult of the Holy Detonation – and the release of the “Colorado Collection” bundle, are both launching digitally on October 5, 2021.

About the Cult of the Holy Detonation expansion:

A nuclear detonation stuck in time, a holy war between mutant cults, and the Desert Rangers stuck right in the middle.

Deep within the Cheyenne Mountain military complex, mutant cults worship an ancient deity they call the Holy Detonation—a nuclear explosion held in stasis. Whether god, science experiment, or an accidental miracle, the Holy Detonation’s energy could power Colorado Springs for hundreds of years or level it in an instant. The warring cults have differing opinions on who should be allowed to honor their “god,” and you’re going to have to muscle your way to the altar. It’s one last mission for the Rangers in Colorado, and the outcome is certain to be explosive—one way or the other.

A teaser trailer giving players a first look into the new DLC was revealed during Microsoft’s gamescom 2021 Xbox Stream.

Cult of the Holy Detonation expands the Wasteland 3 experience with entry into the Cheyenne Mountain complex, crammed with new characters, enemies, challenging combat encounters, and powerful new weapons and armor. Your squad of Rangers will be tested like never before in objective-based encounters that put a creative spin on the already deeply tactical turn-based combat. As they face overwhelming odds the Rangers will need to shut down reactors, clear ventilation systems, and engage defensive countermeasures to stem an unending tide of dangerous mutants and machines within the dilapidated military bunker.

Wasteland 3: Cult of the Holy Detonation will be available for digital download on October 5th for PC, Xbox One and PS4, at an MSRP of $6.99. The Cult of the Holy Detonation content will also be available as a part of the Expansion Pass.

Xbox Game Pass members who want to purchase Cult of the Holy Detonation save 10 percent.

Details on the Wasteland 3: Colorado Collection:

The entire Wasteland 3 experience in one colossal collection. In addition to the award-winning tactical RPG Wasteland 3, the Colorado Collection includes both The Battle of Steeltown and Cult of the Holy Detonation expansions, as well as the Colorado Survival Gear bonus items.

The Colorado Collection includes:

Wasteland 3

  • The award-winning sequel in the Wasteland franchise brings the Desert Rangers to the frozen wastes of Colorado to deal with gangs, cults, and psychopathic clowns in an effort to bring stability to one more frontier of the wastes.

The Battle of Steeltown

  • The manufacturing complex of Steeltown has ground to a halt, stopping deliveries of machines and robots needed for Colorado’s war efforts. It’s up to the Rangers to get the gears turning again, by any means necessary.

Cult of the Holy Detonation

  • Venture into the Cheyenne Mountain complex to take possession of a power source that could make Colorado Springs into an electrified utopia, or a smoking crater. It’s up to the Rangers how they’ll handle this radioactive situation.

Colorado Survival Gear

  • Start your adventures with a snow-themed set of bonus gear that’ll make your arrival in Colorado a tad smoother.

Wasteland 3: Colorado Collection will be available for digital download on October 5th for PC, Xbox One and PS4, with an MSRP of $59.99.
