    Although Gamescom officially begins today, the first event in this year's festivities was yesterday's Microsoft showcase. With the larger titles seemingly reserved for E3, inXile finally got their time in the spotlight with the announcement of the second and final expansion for Wasteland 3. In Wasteland 3: Cult of the Holy Detonation, the rangers will travel to the old military complex at Cheyenne Mountain, which is now occupied by two rival groups of hideously mutated cultists who worship the bizarre nuclear experiment at its center. One of the expansion's new features is what David Rogers calls "objective-based encounters", which are essentially ongoing set piece battle maps where combat doesn't end until the party's objectives are fulfilled. Anyway, here's the announcement:



    Wasteland 3: Cult of the Holy Detonation releases October 5 on PC, Xbox, and PlayStation. Cult of the Holy Detonation is the second and final narrative expansion to the award-winning tactical RPG from inXile entertainment.

    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 accidental miracle, the 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.

    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.

    Cult of the Holy Detonation is the second and final expansion to Wasteland 3 and will be available for $6.99 on Steam, GOG, Xbox, and PlayStation, or as a part of the Wasteland 3 Colorado Collection for $59.99, which includes Wasteland 3, The Battle of Steeltown, Cult of the Holy Detonation, and Colorado Survival Gear. Xbox Game Pass members who want to purchase Cult of the Holy Detonation save 10%.

    Stay tuned here and follow us on Twitter and Facebook as we preview Cult of the Holy Detonation in the weeks ahead.
    As stated, the Cult of the Holy Detonation expansion will be launching on October 5th. I imagine we'll learn more about it in the coming weeks.

    It's half the price of the prior DLC. So I'm guessing half the content?

    Jesus. Steeltown was already too short, as well as gimmicky, boring and not integrated into the main game.

    Seems they're doubling down on the bad.

    Looks like yet more gimmicks and the same moronic take at radiation poisoning that Bethesda has.

    Wasteland 3 looks like isometric Fortnite. *Vomits*

    Can't really find myself overly excited about the premise of tediously slaughtering yet another bombworshipping cult in the postapocalypse.

    From description I'm guessing it's focused on endgame combat.
