Wasteland 3 Story, World and Characters Showcased in New Dev Video
Wasteland 3 was supposed to be out earlier this month, but it was delayed again (the first tentative launch window mentioned by inXile was Q4 2019) due to the developers switching to work-from-home after COVID-19 and all that ensued.
Still, even the new August 28th release date isn't that far off anymore and inXile has begun showing more and more of its latest cRPG game.
In a new behind the scenes video posted yesterday by IGN, inXile's Brian Fargo and Nathan Long introduced more of the story, world, and characters of Wasteland 3. Take a look at the video below, and check out our recent (and very positive) hands-on preview in case you haven't already.
In Wasteland 3 you take command of a squad of Desert Rangers, lawmen and women in a post-nuclear world, trying to rebuild society from the ashes. More than a century after the bombs fell, you’re fighting a losing battle to keep your beloved Arizona alive. Then the self-proclaimed Patriarch of Colorado radios, promising aid if you'll do a job he can only entrust to an outsider—rescue his land from the ambitions of his three bloodthirsty children.
You’re dispatched on a desperate quest from the scorching deserts to the snowy mountains to start from scratch, building a new base, finding a snow-worthy vehicle, training new recruits, and fighting your way through hostile frozen wastes. All the while, you'll have to decide who to trust in this land torn apart by corruption, intrigue, warring factions, crazed cultists, cutthroat gangs, and bitter sibling rivalries. Build a reputation for yourself by making decisions that will profoundly impact Colorado, its inhabitants and the story you experience. Will you be Colorado’s savior or its worst nightmare?
Wasteland 3 is a squad-based RPG from inXile entertainment, featuring challenging tactical turn-based combat and a deep, reactive story full of twists, turns, and brutal ethical decisions that will keep you hooked whether you’re a Wasteland veteran or new to the series. Create a squad of up to six Rangers and customize them with perks and abilities geared to your playstyle. You even get your own battle truck, which you can upgrade into a hardened war beast, bristling with weapons, to help mow down your enemies.
