E3 2019: Wasteland 3 arrives spring 2020

Out of nowhere, the original post-apocalypse returns. Wasteland 3 welcomes gamers to frosty Colorado in spring 2020.

Welcome to the Wasteland

For those who don’t know, Wasteland is kind of the father of the post-apocalyptic RPG. Yes, that means it proceeded Fallout, a series that’s remarkably similar.

Though Wasteland completely fell off the radar for a good long time, it wasn’t forgotten. It popped back up a few years back via Kickstarter in the form of Wasteland 2. That game has since appeared on almost every console out there.

Now though, Wasteland is back for a third time and it’s from none other than Deep Silver.

Welcome to beautiful (?) Colorado…

The legendary series, which pioneered the post-apocalypse genre in video games, returns players to the role of Desert Rangers, lawmen in a post-nuclear world working to rebuild civilization from the ashes. Trading the dry, dusty heat of the American southwest for the frozen badlands of Colorado, Wasteland 3 features a number of chilling new locations where the Rangers will face hazards, engage in combat and receive an icy reception from the locals.

Deep Silver press release

Turn-based combat is the style that Wasteland 3 will sport, though you probably already knew that. Part 3 will also have some new elements though. Included will be co-op play, an upgradable vehicle for your Rangers to truck around in, and a new conversation system.

Developer Inxile says that’s to play up the locals of Colorado. They’re going to be an… interesting lot.

Wasteland 3 hits consoles and the PC in spring 2020.
