Wasteland was set in a dangerous, post-apocalyptic world in the American Southwest. Over the course of adventures rangers would receive promotions, acquire new skills and equipment, then face new challenges with outcomes that changed depending on the strategy used to defeat them. The game featured a strong storyline which required painful decisions by players; and a storyline that allowed for maximum re-playability. Wasteland 2, with your participation and insights, will recapture all that and provide more. It'll finally be the game worthy to be a Wasteland sequel, as challenging and rewarding as the original, with all added capacity and dazzle of games today.
The original Wasteland, released in 1988, has been widely held as one of the top RPGs of all time, and inXile has stated that Wasteland 2 will stay true to its roots. The player will be forced into moral dilemmas and will need to deal with the consequence of their actions throughout the game. Not all decisions are a net positive but it’s up to the player to decide which course they take.
inXile's Brian Fargo revealed that a demo for Wasteland 2 will be made available to kickstater backers, "Feeling very confident that #wasteland2 beta will be ready within 2.5 weeks. Knocking down the list of annoying things very fast."
No official release date has been set yet, the developers want to "work through the beta with our backers, ultimately we are making this game together."
