Wasteland 2 was a big success for inXile Entertainment. Fans of isometric, party-based post-apocalyptica threw nearly $3 million at it on Kickstarter, and were rewarded with an old-timey RPG that, while not perfect, left most of them pretty happy with the results. Today the studio announced that a follow-up, Wasteland 3, is in the works, and that a new crowdfunding campaign, this one on Fig (inXile boss Brian Fargo is on the Fig advisory board), will kick off on October 5.
Wasteland 3 will be set in the “savage lands of frozen Colorado,” and will once again confront players with difficult moral choices and sacrifices. It will expand upon its predecessor with vehicles, environmental dangers, a “revamped, more fluid action system,” and an upgradeable Ranger Base. It will also feature a new dialog tree system created by the writers of inXile’s fantasy RPG Torment: Tides of Numenera.
