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.
Last month inXile entertainment revealed that it was not make the initial "Late August 2014" release date saying that it would moast likely be first or second week in September.
Making good on that promise inXile founder Brian Fargo has now announced the new release date, Sept. 19, 2014.
"After more than 25 years, it is so exciting to finally deliver this game to our audience," says Mr. Fargo. "The project is so much bigger than originally planned but we wanted to over deliver with a massive game to show how wonderful crowd funding can be. Early response has been strong, we’re excited to get this final game out into the world.”
Wasteland 2 will be available for purchase through digital retailers for $40/€40/£30.
