Wasteland 3 is a party-based role-playing game with an emphasis on deep reactivity, replayability, and strategic combat.

The RPG series that pioneered the postapocalyptic genre in video games returns with Wasteland 3!

Following the critically acclaimed release of 2014 Game of the Year winner Wasteland 2, Wasteland 3 takes players from the radioactive heat of the American Southwest to the perpetual nuclear winter of Colorado.

Lead Designer David Rogers is here to walk you through some of the most critical elements of character creation, and how to best approach building your party for combat—along with some tips and tricks directly from the dev team.

This developer diary showcases the extent to which players can customize their party before braving a frozen tundra packed with unpredictable locals. From self-destructive pyro specialists to 'Murica-themed showstoppers, there's tons of options to tinker with and master.

Key Features

  • A party-based role-playing game with a focus on complex story, reactivity of the characters and world, and strategic combat.
  • Vehicles and a revamped, more fluid action system are some of the new features evolving on Wasteland 2's deep, tactical turn-based combat and encounter design.
  • Play single-player or with a friend in story-driven co-op. Choices open (or close off) mission opportunities, areas to explore, story arcs, and more.
  • Set up a base of operations to help the local people and establish a reputation in Colorado. Quests and narrative choices force you to make difficult decisions on how to lead.
  • Set in the savage lands of frozen Colorado, where survival is difficult, and a happy outcome is never guaranteed. Players face difficult moral choices and make sacrifices that change the game world.

Wasteland 3 is in development for PC, PS4 and Xbox One, scheduled for August 28, 2020 both digitally and in retail stores.
