Deep Silver and inExile Entertainment’s award winning squad-based RPG Wasteland 3 will be receiving its first DLC on 3rd June with the arrival of The Battle of Steeltown. This upcoming DLC features a new story of the towering factory complex of Steeltown, tech manufacturer for Colorado. There’s also new gameplay mechanics, enemies, weapons and more. You can see a new teaser trailer below…
The Battle of Steeltown is a huge factory complex that manufacturers a range of items for Colorado, including vehicles, armour, weapons and robots but recently these deliveries have been late, incorrect or missing. Players will lead their investigating rangers to the city to find the place in chaos, locked gates, striking workers and bandit raids are threatening to take the place down and it’s up to players to sort out the problems once and for all.
Features of the DLC include:
- Explore the industrial complex in solo or co-op mode and tackle new quests.
- New robotic enemies.
- New weapons, armour, encounters and more.
- New mechanics added to tactical combat such as stacking status effects, elemental shields, telegraphed attacks and non-lethal weapons.
“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. 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-apoc music.”
The Battle of Steeltown will arrive for Wasteland 3 on 3rd June on PC and consoles.
