Wasteland 3: The Battle of Steeltown releases June 3 on PC, Xbox, and PlayStation. The Battle of Steeltown is the first narrative expansion to the award-winning tactical RPG from inXile entertainment.

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.

The Rangers will have to decide that for themselves.

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, 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 is the first expansion we’ll be releasing and will be available for $13.99 on Steam, GOG, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on June 3, 2021. Xbox Game Pass members who want to purchase The Battle of Steeltown save 10%.

Can’t wait for it! Still hoping The Everest, Faders, Holy detonation, and the lightning shamans get added someday.

Cool! The DLC sounds awesome, especially since it enhances the base game!

Are old save-games compatible with patch 1.40 and/or the new DLC?

Looks great. I'm down for more WL3 content.

Any ideas about how long after a Windows release it might be available for Linux? The long delay for the original game kinda made sense since it's a smaller usebase and the entire game and everything it needs had to be brought up on Linux and Mac. I'm crossing my fingers that the majority of that work will carry over to the expansion, so it might release closer to when Windows does.

@Janmi - yes, older/existing saves will be compatible!

@demeisen - Edit: We're intending all the platforms to release together, including Mac/Linux (pending specific platform schedules, which tend to vary within several hours of each other).

Striking workers? As a union worker myself I am intrigued at the possibilities of how we get to resolve that. Looking forward to this! :)
