Wasteland 2 is the direct sequel to 1988’s Wasteland, the first-ever post-apocalyptic computer RPG and the inspiration behind the Fallout series.
Until Wasteland, no other CRPG had ever allowed players to control and command individual party members for tactical purposes or given them the chance to make moral choices that would directly affect the world around them.
Wasteland was a pioneer in multi-path problem solving, dripping in choice and consequence and eschewing the typical one-key-per-lock puzzle solving methods of its peers, in favor of putting the power into players’ hands to advance based on their own particular play style.
The Wasteland series impressive and innovative lineage has been preserved at its very core, but modernized for the fans of today with Wasteland 2. Immerse yourself in turn-based tactical combat that will test the very limits of your strategy skills as you fight to survive a desolate world where brute strength alone isn’t enough to save you.
Deck out your Ranger squad with the most devastating weaponry this side of the fallout zone and get ready for maximum destruction with the RPG-style character advancement and customization that made the first Wasteland so brutal. Save an ally from certain death or let them perish... the choice is yours, but so are the consequences.
In Wasteland 2’s alternative history, America lays lifeless in the hot ashes and radioactive embers of a deadly nuclear holocaust. Players take command of an elite squad of desert Rangers, formed in the time-honoured tradition of the Texas and Arizona Rangers. Setting out across post-apocalyptic and treacherous landscapes players try to help the last remaining remnants of humanity survive against hordes of desperate bandits, insane criminals, decaying mutants and much worse.
Developed by an amazing team of RPG pioneers that include Brian Fargo and Chris Avellone and with a musical score composed by the legendary Mark Morgan, Wasteland 2 will be available in the second half of 2014 for PC, Mac and Linux. An early access beta is available via the Steam store.
