Crossing 2 million players is an impressive enough statistic for any game, but it's even more so for a third-person RPG, a genre that typically doesn't capture the mainstream audience. If you haven't already played Wasteland 3, which is undoubtedly one of the best Xbox games, the genre-defining title is available now for Xbox, PlayStation, and PC platforms. You can also play Wasteland 3 through Xbox Game Pass.

Wasteland 3 was packed to the brim with content from the moment it launched, by inXile has since released two DLC expansions to add additional story content and features. The Battle of Steeltown and Cult of the Holy Detonation are both available alongside Wasteland 3, and are included in the Colorado Collection.

  • Very well deserved. I wish I wouldn't have stopped playing during my hard run as it is very hard to jump back into.
  • I did that with Wasteland 2. I stopped playing for months, no real reason, just did. Then when I jumped back in I was completely lost and just couldn't get back into it. I might just play through the original, then restart 2 and finally get 3 done.
  • Definitely well deserved. I love that game. I played through, start to finish, 4 times trying to find the ending I liked the most. It is extremely rare for me to play through a game more than once. I am excited for a 4th installment of the Wasteland series.
