The Cult of the Holy Detonation Comes to Wasteland 3
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 accidental miracle, the 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 honour their god and you’re going to have to muscle your way to the altar.
The second and final expansion for Wasteland 3 expands the game by introducing new characters, enemies, challenging combat encounters and powerful new weapons and armours. Your squad of Rangers will be tested like never before in objective-based encounters, putting a creative spin on the already deeply tactical turn-based combat. As you face overwhelming odds, you 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 military bunker.
Alongside the release of the expansion, inXile also announced a new bundle - the Colorado Collection - which includes the base game, The Battle of Steeltown and Cult of the Holy Detonation expansions, as well as the Colorado Survival Gear bonus items.
