During Gamescom 2021, developer InXile Entertainment announced a new expansion coming to the post-apocalyptic RPG Wasteland 3: Cult of the Holy Detonation. In this DLC, players will travel to the Cheyenne Mountain Complex and encounter countless new characters, enemies, weapons and armors, and challenging objective-based combat encounters that are designed to mix things up and force players to approach battles in new ways.

To survive and succeed in the Cheyenne Mountain Complex, players will need to shut reactors down, clear ventilation systems, and activate defensive countermeasures to stop a massive army of mutants and machines from overrunning the complex.

Wasteland 3: Cult of the Holy Detonation is coming to Wasteland 3 on October 5, 2021. In addition to the expansion, a new edition of Wasteland 3 called Wasteland 3: Colorado Collection is launching on October 5 that includes Wasteland 3, Wasteland 3: The Battle of Steeltown, and Wasteland 3: Cult of the Holy Detonation in one complete package.

  • I am definitely excited about this. I love this game. I played through the base game a couple of times but was waiting on a new XBox before playing the expansions. The load screens are painful and a new XBox would help with that. It is hard to believe that it is getting close to a year and I still haven't been able to find a normal priced XBox. Maybe I will get one by the time the Series X2 comes out...
