Yes, you read that correctly. Sheep missiles, missiles of sheep. It’s the apocalypse and you’ve just gotta make do with what you’ve got. That’s just one of the many features shown off in a new dev diary video for the upcoming Wasteland 3, as well as a better look at the character customization, gun and melee combat, and certain moral choices players can make in the game.
The post-apocalyptic RPG, Wasteland 3, has unfortunately been delayed due to the current coronavirus pandemic. In a message posted on the official Wasteland Twitter page, the developers behind the popular turn-based RPG Wasteland series, inXile entertainment, revealed that the final game will be pushed back to an August release date.
The true heir to the post-apocalyptic RPG throne is back. Fallout 2.
Arriving under the watchful gaze of Microsoft following its acquisition of inXile Entertainment, Wasteland 3 welcomes the pioneering post-apocalyptic RPG for a third bite at the nuclear stockpile. In Wasteland 3, players will embark on an epic quest in the American Southwest full of turn-based combat, mad cultists, and a branching storyline. It should, fingers crossed, be a fantastic follow-up to Wasteland 2, and here are the PC specs needed to run Wasteland 3.
Wasteland 3 developer inXile Entertainment has just received $4.5 million worth of investment from publisher Gumi to develop a new open-world survival RPG designed exclusively for VR.
Having been officially announced a few weeks ago, inXile Entertainment has gone live with Wasteland 3’s Fig crowdfunding campaign, alongside the first ever gameplay trailer. Predictably the funding has got off to a flyer. Within two hours Wasteland 3 had blown past the halfway point of its $2.75 million funding goal, going on to amass $2.16 million overnight. Wasteland 3 is coming then, and on the basis of the footage it's also quite far along in development. Which all makes it a mite disappointing to hear the estimated arrival of Q4 2019. Gulp.
Clearly not inundated enough with the likes of The Bards Tale IV and Torment: Tides of Numenera already in the works, inXile entertainment has officially announced Wasteland 3. And this time, you won't have to wait two decades for the sequel.
