Wasteland 3: The Battle of Steeltown DLC Review – Narrowing Down the Infinite to the Plausible

Ever since its very beginnings, the Wasteland series stood out from the competition with its crazy world, great writing, and solid gameplay, but it's only with Wasteland 3 that the series literally took off, presenting an amazing role-playing game experience that all fans of the genre should not miss for any reason. All the main game's best features, such as the great worldbuilding and writing, the engaging tactical combat system, and how the choices players make during the game have some real consequences, make a glorious comeback in The Battle of Steeltown, Wasteland 3's first proper expansion.

The Battle of Steeltown content can be accessed as soon as player characters reach level 9. Once they do, no matter where they are in the story, the Patriarch will contact the Rangers, asking them to look into an essential matter. Steeltown has been providing him all the weapons needed to defend his land from the gangs roaming around post-apocalyptic Colorado, but production dangerously slowed down in recent times. As such, the rangers, as part of their agreement with Saul Buchanan, must speak with the Steeltown CEO to solve any problem that may have arisen.


With a new engaging story nicely integrated with the main campaign, excellent writing, and new combat mechanics, Wasteland 3: The Battle of Steeltown is a more than worthy purchase for all those who have loved the game. The new campaign's high challenge level and relatively short length of the main quest may put some off, but, everything considered, The Battle of Steeltown is the perfect continuation of an already excellent experience.

Score: 8/10
