Wasteland 3’s final expansion Cult of the Holy Detonation is out in October

A nuclear detonation in stasis, a holy war between mutant cults. Guess who’s stuck in the middle? The second and final DLC expansion for Wasteland 3 – Cult of the Holy Detonation – will be released in October. Set deep within the Cheyenne Mountain military complex, here mutant cults worship an “ancient deity” they call the Holy Detonation, which is basically a nuclear explosion held in stasis that could either power Colorado Springs for hundreds of years or level it. Because the warring cults have differing opinions on who should be allowed to honor this god, you will have to…

Wasteland 3’s next DLC stars radiation-worshipping cults

InXile have announced the next expansion for Wasteland 3 will arrive on October 5th, inviting players into a battle between two rival cults. Cult Of The Holy Detonation will take players to a new area in Colorado where some heavily irradiated people are worshiping some sort of nuclear experiment. You’d think people wouldn’t worship something that was poisoning them, but hey ho, that’s their problem… Well, actually this DLC makes it your problem, so uh, good luck with that. Read more

So, It’s Been A Year, Huh

On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared the growing outbreak of covid-19 a pandemic. In the year since, over 120 million people have been infected by the virus worldwide, and 2.5 million people have died because of covid-19. Life has forever been changed. We wear masks. Avoid crowds. Businesses have shut down, and many won’t reopen. And while the vaccine has brought hope to a planet drowning in fear and anxiety, it can’t fix what’s already happened. Through all of this, video games still came out, and we still played them. At times, working for a website dedicated…

Wasteland 3 The Psychopath Quest – How to get Victory Buchanan out alive

In Wasteland 3, while there were multiple interwoven quests involved in dislodging Val from his hiding place, The Psychopath is one long, sprawling story that takes a good while to complete. To get Victory Buchanan back to Ranger HQ in custody, you’ll need a fair few high stats. Before making your way to Aspen at Level 17, I’d recommend having one team member with at least Perception or Kiss Ass 8, Lockpicking 8, Mechanics 8, and Nerd Stuff 8. It’s not required, but you could also use a medic with First Aid 8 too. By this point in the game…
