We haven't posted much about Wasteland 3 since it was released last August. In fact, the game has received several major patches since then, the most recent one adding permadeath, more difficult skill checks, additional character customization options and other new features. Yet all that time there's been no sign of any DLC, which inXile repeatedly promised was in the works. Well, there's no time like the present. Here's our first look at Wasteland 3: The Battle of Steeltown, an expansion where the rangers will be tasked with dealing with a disturbance at the Patriarch's manufacturing complex. Naturally the expansion will include new robotic enemies as well as various new combat mechanics. Also, level scaling so you can play it at any time during your campaign. Hmmkay. Here's the announcement:

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.

The Battle of Steeltown will come shortly after the release of Patch 1.4.0 which introduces some exciting new features. Stay tuned here and follow us on Twitter and Facebook as we preview content and features of Patch 1.4.0 and The Battle of Steeltown in the weeks ahead.​

As stated, The Battle of Steeltown is scheduled for release on June 3rd and will be preceded by another major patch. It's apparently the first of two expansions planned for Wasteland 3. This phenomenon of expansion DLCs coming out ages after the base game must be a Covid era thing.
