Fresh off the success of Wasteland 2, developer inXile is making a direct sequel, announcing today plans to release Wasteland 3 for PC, Mac, Linux, PS4, and Xbox One.
Alien Wasteland is a rudimentary looking first-person-shooter made by a single person. It looks pretty darn different from Wasteland 2, the gritty strategy game from inXile Entertainment. Nonetheless, the developer behind Alien Wasteland was recently issued a cease and desist from the creators of Wasteland 2.
Since Wasteland 2’s came out in September 2014, there’s been a mystery no one can solve. It involves a computer with a red button. When players press it, the ground shakes. No one knows what happens after that. Were the developers trolling everyone or was there more to the story? There is, and I have answers.
Wasteland 2 is getting a slew of upgrades on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, but inXile’s revealed PC, Mac, and Linux owners will get those upgrades for free. The game will be getting updated graphics, new voice overs, gameplay tweaks, and more.
Wasteland 2 was announced for Xbox One yesterday, and it's been announced for PlayStation 4 today. There's no release date for the console versions yet.
"Forsaken by his people, he strode into the wasteland," the narrator intones in the intro to Fallout 2. 16 years later, and creator Brian Fargo has delivered that promise anew in a very literal way: by making Wasteland 2, a spiritual successor to his Fallout games that's also a...sequel to their predecessor.
Wasteland 2 comes out today, and the question on many an OG CRPG gamer's mind is: "How does it compare to Fallout?" I'll have a fuller answer to that soon, but there's an elephant in the room that must be addressed first. Come on, Brian Fargo: where is my Ron Perlman?
"There was this one moment in Fallout 3, when I came across a prisoner at some raider camp," I said. "She was still tied up, but all the raiders were gone. Maybe they were dead or something, I don't know. The game gave me a choice: I could take her supplies and leave her there, or set her free."
In a world with horse armor DLC, things that game companies sell as additional content never surprises me—but it's probably a bad sign that I clicked this particular button half expecting the "Red Boots DLC" to be real, huh?
The Internet is in danger, everyone. That sounds like kind of a silly thing to say, but it's true. While not yet set in stone, the FCC has made disconcerting plans to allow companies to divide this beautiful web of ours into potentially expensive tiers. Gaming stands to take a massive hit too. Here's why.
It raised a ton of cash during its Kickstarter campaign. Then Wasteland 2 got delayed because of all that money. But, rest assured, the sequel to the classic RPG is coming. And a new video gives a substantial glimpse at what the gameplay will look like. Get ready for clicking, folks.
Wasteland 2 sure is looking nice. Here's a lengthy demo of a level from the game, which gives a good sense of a bunch of the different systems and encounters and how they all fit together.
Wasteland 2, like Double Fine's adventure game, is one of Kickstarter's greatest video game project successes. And, like Double Fine's adventure game, it's also run into a snag because, well, y'all just gave it too darn much money.
The Kickstarted game Wasteland 2 now has a publisher—Deep Silver, who will distribute the game but concede all creative control to the developers at inXile, according to inXile.
Wasteland 2, the tremendously successful Kickstarter project that earned close to $3 million when it was funded last year, is starting to shape up.
People giving money to Kickstarter projects love games. How much do they love them? According to Kickstarter's number crunchers, over $50 million dollars over the last eight months have gone to games campaigns. That's more money than has gone to film, tech or music projects.
