Default Wasteland 3 - Battle of Steeltown Review

PC Invasion checked out Wasteland 3 - The Battle of Steeltown:

Wasteland 3: The Battle of Steeltown Review -- Factories and firefights

Last August, I was able to play Wasteland 3, inXile Entertainment's latest entry to the post-apocalyptic, turn-based RPG. Although it had a few flaws, my 60-hour journey was very much enjoyable. Still, I was looking for more, perhaps new adventures in the frozen wilderness of Colorado. That brings us to Wasteland 3: The Battle of Steeltown, the game's first expansion which is set to release today.

For the sake of transparency, the developers did provide a save file that had pre-leveled characters (level 12) with decent gear. That was a blessing in disguise since I actually lost my save file when I upgraded my PC last year, and I only realized this mishap recently. Thankfully, I didn't have to replay the game from the beginning.

Wasteland 3: The Battle of Steeltown
The first expansion for Wasteland 3 takes you to a massive factory that supplies Colorado with weapons and materials.

Wasteland 3: The Battle of Steeltown has a few notable flaws, and it's also a fairly short romp. However, there's enough content and tactical depth to make you want to keep adventuring in this post-apocalyptic landscape.

Score: 7.5/10

Looks about like what I expected. In any case, holding out for the content complete edition before I touch it again.

According to inXile, the 2nd DLC will be out in Summer 2021. I guess I'll wait for it in order to play this game at once

inXile has no clue when it comes to DLC's. Obsidian does DLC better.

Who cares about a DLC score, when the base game is good? Keep them coming!
Currently I'm finishing that long & buggy Raymond-quest in Shadowrun Hong Kong Extended Edition, which game has the infinite advantage that it is DONE and prolly be never updated again. So final version is guaranteed.

I'm waiting for the director's version, then I'll play the entire sprawling game at once. I'm still debating a replay of the second game at some point this year.

In my own playthrough, I'd say it took me at least double that amount of time, although I was doing all the side content.

At least to me, 3 hours feels like you'd have to skip a bunch of dialog, and ignore all the optional stuff.

It's Summer 2021 now.

Is the second one supposed to be the final DLC?

Yeah I know! They still have a couple of months to release it before we can say they're late

I guess so. I couldn't find any hints/clues regarding a possible third DLC. Even this "Summer 2021" estimated date of arrival for the 2nd DLC I got from the Wasteland 3 Expansion Pass Steam Page.
