We’re celebrating our 20th year as a game studio with a look back through our history; where we came from, obstacles along the way, and our studio’s future. But it’s the challenges that made us who we are, and we’re sharing never before heard stories about our history, our games (including some that never got released), and how becoming part of Xbox Game Studios has changed our trajectory forever.
As you’ll learn in the documentary, it’s really our fans and those that helped support us directly through crowdfunding that kept the studio going, and we’d like to once again thank anyone who backed a game, told a friend about us, or even just liked a post promoting a backer campaign. Even those small interactions absolutely made a difference in our lives, and we survived as a studio on the support of people who like to play the kinds of games we like making.
We hope you enjoy this look back at the last 20 years and continue to join us in our game worlds as we look toward the next 20.
In Wasteland 3 the fate of Arizona depends on the fate of Colorado. You’re a Desert Ranger, fighting a losing battle to keep your beloved Arizona alive, when the self-proclaimed Patriarch of Colorado radios, promising aid if you’ll do a job he can only entrust to an outsider—rescue his land from the ambitions of his three bloodthirsty children.
Wasteland 3 is a post-apocalyptic RPG from inXile entertainment, featuring challenging tactical combat, hours of exploration, and a deep, reactive story full of twists, turns, and brutal ethical decisions. Play in single-player or co-op as you customize your squad with perks and abilities geared to your playstyle, and customize your vehicle—the Kodiak—turning it into a hardened war beast. Saving Colorado isn’t going to be easy, but Arizona is counting on you, so… don’t screw it up.
Wasteland 3: The Battle of Steeltown
The towering factory complex of Steeltown manufactures all the tech that keeps Colorado running and the Patriarch in power—trucks, armor, weapons, and robots. But deliveries from Steeltown have stopped cold, and all the Patriarch is getting from Abigail Markham—Steeltown’s leader—are excuses. When he sends the Rangers to investigate, they find the place is a powder keg with the fuse already lit. The workers are striking, bandits raid with impunity, and nobody is allowed through the gates, not even on the business of the Patriarch. Without help, Steeltown could crash and burn for good, and take Markham with it—but maybe that’s just what it needs. The Rangers will have to decide that for themselves.
Traverse the Steeltown manufacturing complex alone or in co-op in this epic narrative expansion. Take on challenging new quests, face off against new robotic enemies, and solve the mystery at the heart of Steeltown however you see fit.
Tactical combat is taken to new heights with new mechanics like devastating telegraphed attacks, stacking status effects, elemental shields, and non-lethal weapons—letting you solve Steeltown’s skirmishes in brand new ways.
Combat and gear scaling means that both new and returning players can enter Steeltown during their playthroughs for a level-appropriate challenge, with a story and cast of characters that adapt to the decisions you’ve already made.
The Battle of Steeltown expands the base game with new enemies, weapons, armor, and world map encounters.
Music Supervisor Mary Ramos and Composer Mark Morgan return with original scores and new post-apocalyptic inspired covers.
