With gamescom and Wasteland 3’s one year anniversary just around the corner, inXile Entertainment and Prime Matter are proud to announce not only the second and final DLC expansion pack for Wasteland 3, “Cult of the Holy Detonation”, but also the release of the “ Colorado Collection”, both of which will be released on October 5, 2021.

Wasteland 3: Cult of the Holy Detonation

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

Deep within the Cheyenne Mountain Military Complex, mutant cults worship an ancient deity they call the Sacred Detonation – a nuclear blast kept stationary. Whether it’s a god, a scientific experiment, or an unintended miracle, the energy from the blast 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 worship their god and you will have to fight your way into the altar. It’s one last mission for the Rangers in Colorado, and the outcome is sure to be explosive – whatever the outcome.

A teaser trailer giving players a first look at the new DLC was unveiled during Microsoft’s gamescom 2021 Xbox stream.

Cult of the Holy Detonation expands the Wasteland 3 experience with access to the Cheyenne Mountain complex, packed with new characters, enemies, challenging combat encounters, and powerful new weapons and armor. Adding a creative twist to the already highly tactical turn-based combat, objective-based encounters will test your squad of rangers like never before. Faced with seemingly impossible tasks, the Rangers must shut down reactors, clean out ventilation systems and initiate defensive countermeasures to deal with the never-ending tide of dangerous mutants and machines inside the derelict military bunker.
