Wasteland 2 - 1

InXile has launched their post-apocalyptic RPG Wasteland 2 on Steam Early Access following its recent release to Kickstarter backers a few days ago.

The Steam description reads:

Welcome back to the Citadel, Rangers! Join the over 70,000 Kickstarter backers and interact with the development team to help shape the ending of an already historic post-apocalyptic story. The Wasteland’s hellish landscape has been waiting for you to make your mark… or die trying

Wasteland 2 is the direct sequel to 1988’s Wasteland, the first-ever post-apocalyptic computer RPG and the inspiration behind the Fallout series. Until Wasteland, no other CRPG had ever allowed players to control and command individual party members for tactical purposes or given them the chance to make moral choices that would directly affect the world around them. Wasteland was a pioneer in multi-path problem solving, dripping in choice and consequence and eschewing the typical one-key-per-lock puzzle solving methods of its peers, in favor of putting the power into players’ hands to advance based on their own particular play style.

To coincide with the launch on Steam, a patch (v28396) has also been deployed which changes the following.

  • Fixed rocket launchers
  • Tweaked combat grid & nav mesh in Wrecking Crew Stronghold to prevent a Raider being isolated and stuck during combat
  • Bashable fences persist between game loads
  • Turned off blue debug combat grid

The Early Access version comes with a free copy of Wasteland 1, two digital novellas set in The Wasteland world, a digital version of Mark Morgan’s Wasteland 2 soundtrack, and a digital concept art book. All this will set you back £29.99.
