Head to the frozen wastes of Colorado.
InXile Entertainment has announced that 'Wasteland 3' is currently in development for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Mac, and Linux. 'Wasteland 2' was a major success on Kickstarter, and the developer has announced that this new game will also be crowdfunded, but will instead use Double Fine's Fig platform, where they hope to raise $2.75 million dollars starting on October 5th. The Brotherhood, developers of the cult hit adventure game 'Stasis' is co-developing the Colorado-set sequel.
The sequel has been described as follows:
What is Wasteland 3?
A party-based role-playing game, with a renewed focus on our trademark complex story reactivity and strategic combat.
By including vehicles, environmental dangers, and a revamped, more fluid action system, we are evolving on Wasteland 2‘s deep tactical turn-based combat and unique encounter design.
Play by yourself or with a friend in story-driven synchronous or asynchronous multiplayer. Choices open up (or close off) mission opportunities, areas to explore, story arcs, and tons of other content.
Your Ranger Base is a core part of the experience. As you help the local people and improve your Ranger Base, quests and narrative will force you to make decisions on how to lead.
The game will be set in the savage lands of frozen Colorado, where survival is difficult and a happy ending is never guaranteed. Players will face difficult moral choices and make sacrifices that will change the game world.
Wasteland 3 will feature a deep and engaging story utilizing a newly-revamped dialog tree system from the celebrated writers of Torment: Tides of Numenera
Simultaneously releasing to Windows, Mac, Linux, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One
'Wasteland 2' was a slow burn, but ultimately ended up as a terrific RPG with some really smart writing, if 3 follows suit, this is definitely one to keep an eye on.
