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.

This video series takes a closer look at the development of “Wasteland 3” and features various inXile developers speaking to the story, characters, combat, and the choices and consequences you’ll face in Wasteland 3.

This second Dev Diary is with Brian Fargo and Senior Writer Nathan Long who sit down to explain the setting you’ll explore and people you’ll meet as you direct the story of Colorado’s future.

The Desert Rangers ended Wasteland 2 in dire straits, setting up the story and motivation for their trek to Colorado to meet its self-proclaimed Patriarch—Saul Buchanan. Helping him with his dilemma will send you across the nation-state, encountering friend and foe, and allowing players to create and direct the world and story as they see fit.

Plus it includes a first reveal of the Patriarch’s daughter—Liberty!

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.
