Wasteland 3: The Cult of the Holy Detonation is a downloadable content (DLC) expansion for the post-apocalyptic role-playing game Wasteland 3. It was developed by inXile Entertainment and published by Deep Silver. The DLC was released on May 10, 2021 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and on June 2, 2021 for Microsoft Windows.
The DLC takes place in the Cheyenne Mountain military complex, where mutant cults worship an ancient deity they call the Holy Detonation—a nuclear explosion held in stasis. The Rangers must muscle their way to the altar and decide the fate of the Detonation.
The DLC adds a new area to explore, the Cheyenne Mountain complex, which is filled with new characters, enemies, and challenges. The Rangers will also have access to new weapons and armor, and they will face new objectives that put a creative spin on the already deeply tactical turn-based combat.
The DLC is approximately 8-15 hours long, depending on how much you explore and how much you engage in side quests. It is available for purchase on the PlayStation Store for $14.99.
Here are some reviews of the DLC:
- IGN: “Wasteland 3: The Cult of the Holy Detonation is a solid DLC expansion that adds a great new area to explore, some challenging new enemies, and a few new twists on the combat system. It’s not essential, but it’s definitely worth checking out if you enjoyed the base game.”
- PC Gamer: “Wasteland 3: The Cult of the Holy Detonation is a great addition to the base game, adding a new location, new characters, and new challenges. The combat is still as tactical and satisfying as ever, and the writing is top-notch. If you’re a fan of Wasteland 3, this DLC is a must-have.”
- GameSpot: “Wasteland 3: The Cult of the Holy Detonation is a solid DLC expansion that adds a good amount of content to the base game. The new location is well-designed, the new enemies are challenging, and the new quests are interesting. However, the DLC does feel a bit short, and it doesn’t add anything truly groundbreaking to the experience. Overall, it’s a worthwhile purchase for fans of the base game, but it’s not essential.”
