Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

inXile entertainment, the studio led by Interplay founder and Wasteland co-creator Brian Fargo and Deep Silver announce that Wasteland 3—the award winning squad-based RPG released in August of last year—is getting its first narrative expansion DLC: “The Battle of Steeltown”

In southwest Colorado lies the towering factory complex of Steeltown, which manufactures all the tech that keeps Colorado running and the Patriarch in power; trucks, armour, weapons, and robots.

But deliveries are mixed up, late, or outright missing, and investigating Rangers find the industrial complex in disarray. Striking workers, bandit raids…not to mention the gates are locked tight. Without help, the area will revolt and take Steeltown’s leader—Abigail Markham—with it. But maybe that’s not such a bad thing; you and your team of Rangers will need to decide that for yourself.

Players can explore the complex in solo or co-op mode, taking on new quests and facing a horde of new robotic enemies.

New mechanics have also been added to the tactical combat—stacking status effects, elemental shields, telegraphed attacks, and non-lethal weapons—giving fights a new dimension and allowing players to solve battles in brand new ways.

These new elements will also expand into the base game, along with new weapons, armour, encounters, giving the game a whole new experience and, depending on how far they’ve already progressed, will scale the combat and gear when entering Steeltown ensuring level-appropriate challenges.

“The Battle of Steeltown represents not just a fantastic new chapter in Wasteland 3’s story,” says Game Director, David Rogers “full of choice, consequence, and Wasteland 3’s unique brand of humor, it’s also a culmination of all the hard work we’ve put into the game since launch. For those playing Wasteland 3 for the first time they’ll be playing the best version of the game. For players coming back to visit Steeltown they’re in for a treat with new story, characters, and combat mechanics that really change up tactics in challenging new ways. They’ll also see characters and stories they started in the base game make an appearance, with new interactions for everyone’s favorite foul-mouthed parrot, Santa’s Elves “Where Are They Now?” and more. All of this is complemented with incredible new post-apoc music.”

The games music’s supervisor, Mary Ramos, along with composer Mark Morgan have also added their own original scores and post-apocalyptic inspired covers.

Wasteland 3: The Battle of Steeltown will be available for digital download on 3 June 2021 on PC & Consoles.

Global Gaming Marketplace Kinguin Partners With Immutable X
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Offering 10 Million Gaming And esports Customers Access To The Most Advanced Platform For NFTs

Immutable X, the first layer-2 scaling solution for NFTs built on Ethereum, forms a partnership with Kinguin, a leading global video games marketplace, with over 10 million registered users. Both companies share a vision to create a new lightning-fast, low-cost, and eco-friendly NFT marketplace for gamers.

NFTs are essentially an evolution of digital ownership, a concept already familiar to gamers. Early NFT projects largely consisted of static images and art, while innovations in the space have led to the proliferation of dynamic digital collectibles, including trading cards, digital art, and other in-game items.

Unlike digital items of the past, the minting of digital collectibles in the form of NFTs enables verifiable ownership, uniqueness, and scarcity. NFT game items cannot be taken away from you by game developers, and can be sold for real money. The top NFT-centric projects, including popular games like Gods Unchained, Axie Infinity, and Aavegotchi, have experienced explosive growth, producing over $750 million in secondary sales volume in Q1 of 2021.

The Kinguin team is aiming for technical excellence in the build-up to their NFT offering that will include NFT Gaming Cards and more blockchain products in parallel to their existing digital marketplace, focused on games and software. Working closely with partners, game developers, influencers and gamers, Kinguin will welcome customers to the world of NFTs in a way that feels familiar and is easy to use from day one. Kinguin’s influence in the esports world spans from sponsoring major Counter Strike leagues, and they are well known for their Kinguin Esports Performance Center and Kinguin Esports Lounge in Europe.

“We are excited to partner up with Immutable X to bring innovative NFT offerings to gamers and eSports enthusiasts worldwide. We see the ultimate value in creating new rich experiences and functionality to these global communities”, said Viktor Romaniuk Wanli, Founder and CEO at Kinguin.

Immutable X was created by Immutable, the team behind one of Ethereum’s highest-grossing trading card games, Gods Unchained. It is the first layer-2 solution for NFTs on Ethereum, solving for all three issues related to NFT scaling: accessibility, scalability without compromising user custody and true decentralization.

Immutable X launched in Alpha this March and aims to unlock digital economies at scale by enabling NFTs to be traded, earned, shared, gamed and collected completely gas-free and securely with the power of ZK-rollup technology by StarkWare.

“Kinguin comes in with massive marketplace building knowledge, structures and experience, and we’re very excited about the unique trading experiences that they’ll be able to create and scale on Immutable X”, said Robbie Ferguson, co-founder of Immutable.

After observing and analyzing the NFTs industry for the last couple of years, Kinguin decided to introduce new structures, allowing the brand to enter the NFT market. Their goal is to leverage the existing ecosystem and enable their clients and partners to create unique NFT collections and trade them on the most advanced platform on the market.

“It is a natural next step for Kinguin, as our digital marketplace will expand its offering, according to the needs of our customers and incentivize them with new bounties and special deals built using NFT tokens”, added Viktor Romaniuk Wanli, Founder and CEO at Kinguin.
