Wasteland 3: Cult of the Holy Detonation Announced

Wasteland 3: Cult of the Holy Detonation

Publisher Prime Matter and developer inXile Entertainment have announced Wasteland 3: Cult of the Holy Detonation, the second and final expansion for the post-apocalyptic CRPG.

Wasteland 3: Cult of the Holy Detonation is launching October 5 across Windows PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

Furthermore, a Wasteland 3 Colorado Collection release is planned for the same day – it includes the base game and both the previous The Battle of Steeltown expansion and the newly announced Cult of the Holy Detonation expansion.

Here’s a new trailer:

Here’s a rundown on the new expansion:

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 an accidental miracle, the Holy 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.

Wasteland 3 is available on Windows PC (via GOG, and Steam), PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. In case you missed it, you can find our review here. We recommend it on Windows PC.
