Moving its way through development is the third game in the Wasteland series, and inXile has a fresh batch of screenshots for you.
Back to the Wasteland
Wasteland has made a pretty big comeback over the last few years, after a break that lasted a few decades. While the original was a Kickstarter title, it’s now full retail too, coming out of developer inXile.
They’ve been hard at work on a third game in the series for some time now. And as of this week they have a new set of screens to show off. As you’ll see in the gallery below, it’s looking sharp.
That’s looking a fair shake better looking than Wasteland 2 to me. You can kind of get the drift of the narrative too, from the screens. Just in case you’re wondering though, Wasteland 3 takes place in the American west.
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 a perpetually frozen Colorado, Wasteland 3 features a number of chilling new locations where the Rangers receive an even frostier reception from the locals.
In addition to narrative choices and consequences, and the tactical turn-based combat that the series is known for, Wasteland 3 delivers brand new features, including a dynamic conversation system that highlights the weird and wild denizens of the Colorado Wasteland, an upgradable player vehicle, and the ability to play through the storyline cooperatively with a friend online.Deep Silver
So when’s Wasteland 3 coming to retail? As of right now, there’s still no launch date, though it’s still got a “spring 2020” window attached. The game is set to hit the PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Mac. Nope, there’s no Switch version planned, at least not yet.
