A new opening intro-movie for inXile’s upcoming post-apocalyptic cRPG, Wasteland 2 that was funded by a successful Kickstarter campaign and which is expected to release end of August 2014 has been unveiled this week.
The new Wasteland 2 game is currently available via the Steam Early Access program and as you might have guessed by the games name is a sequel to the classic Wasteland 1 game offering players a turn-based, isometric, gaming style.
During the Wasteland 2 game players are able to carry out intensive exploration of the radioactive wastes of the virtual American Southwest, which provide gameplay that is heavy on choice and consequence, say the games creators. Explaining :
“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.”
