Wasteland 3: The Battle of Steeltown is the first big expansion to Wasteland 3, the third installment of the cult post-apocalyptic RPG series by inXile Entertainment studio, headed by Brian Fargo. The expansion takes the player to the Steeltown, the industrial heart of post-apocalyptic Colorado.

Plot

Set during the events of Wasteland 3, the story revolves around the titular town of Steeltown, which is home to a massive factory complex producing weapons, armour, machinery and vehicles for use by the hardline Colorado Patriarch. However, no deliveries have been coming from the town for some time, and the town manager, Abigail Markham, refuses to give an explanation. The Patriarch then sends the Desert Rangers to investigate. Once there, the situation in Steeltown turns out to be dire. Workers are on strike, bandits are on the rampage and the town gates are locked. As Ranger, you must discover what is happening in Steeltown and save the town - or bring it down completely.

Mechanics

The gameplay basics in the add-on remain largely unchanged. We are still dealing with turn-based tactical strategy based on unit positioning and use of special skills. However, DLC introduces many minor modifications aiming at improvement of the game. We face new enemies and acquire new types of weapons. One of them, for example, is a stun weapon for pacifist players. The add-on also introduces the ability to apply several status effects to enemies at once, as well as shields to protect against elemental damage. Buying the DLC adds all new improvements to the basic game as well.

Game modes

Just like the main game, The Battle of Steeltown allows you to play the entire campaign solo or in co-op with another player.

Technical aspects

The audiovisual setting has not changed significantly. The game still runs on the Unity engine and features eye-pleasing graphics. The DLC also includes new songs composed by Mark Morgan.
