We could see a bit of what’s coming in the new entry of the Wasteland series in June during the E3, but inXile Entertainment has not revealed much about Wasteland 3 in the following months. We have been kept oblivious about the development of the game until yesterday when the first gameplay video was revealed at the X019.
Wasteland 3 is a squad-based role-playing game that takes place in a world that has suffered a nuclear apocalypse. Climate has changed; human society as we know it has disappeared and struggling to survive in the wasteland is the only life the survivors know. You will be part of the Desert Rangers, and your mission is to fight against the rules of this new world to turn it into something that resembles what it was in the past.
If you ever played Wasteland 2 all of this may sound quite familiar to you since the core of the story is the same, but that is not a problem at all since the previous game is so good that Wasteland 3 doesn’t really need to have any new gameplay mechanics or suffer dramatic changes to become another great role-playing game. Real-time exploration and strategic turn-based combat are an excellent combination that is perfect for this type of game.
Wasteland 3 can be played solo or with other players in co-op mode. The protagonist of the game is a squad formed by six rangers, and players can customize them however they want with different perks and abilities to create their own gameplay style.
Wasteland 3 – Pre-order bonus items
Along with this new video, inXile Entertainment has revealed that the release of Wasteland 3 is scheduled for May 19th next year. The game will be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC at launch. Pre-ordering the game, you will receive a few bonus items to customize your character. You can see them in the pic above, including Ranger General Hat and Glasses, Polished Ranger Badge, and Snow Camo Weapons.
