Wasteland 2 Details and New Live-Action Trailer

By Peter Stojanov, 1 year ago
inXile Entertainment releases a new trailer and some screenshots for the improved console version of their critically-acclaimed RPG, Wasteland 2. Featured in post-apocalyptic Arizona and California, the game will include complex character building, tactical turn-based combat, a reactive storyline and a classic RPG experience as you explore a huge open world.

Screen 7

Some of the changes from the PC-version include a graphics overhaul with the Unity 5 game engine; redone character models, environments, and lighting; Precision Strikes which help to do targeted attacks on enemies to cripple them and open up more tactical options; a contextual and radial menu for fast selection which results in a smoother experience; and a boost to the character system with Perks and Quirks.
Quirks let you specify new personality traits that will have both advantages and disadvantages when you create your characters, and Perks let you pick special bonuses and new abilities as you level up throughout the game.

Wasteland 2 will be released for the Xbox One and Windows 10 on October 13th, 2015 in the Americas and October 16th worldwide.

Hello everybody! My name is Peter but I'm usually known as smokin cheez or just cheez. I've been a Newshound and reviewer for TrueTrophies for awhile now and when I heard that TA needed some more Newshounds I applied right away! The meaning behind my gamertag isn't what most potheads think it is, it's just because I like cheese, especially ones that are smoking. I live in Ontario, Canada and I love to write. Just mopping up school now and working at the airport to pay off loans but it barely stops me from writing for these awesome sites. Even though I write for TT, the sister, PlayStation version of TA, I'm actually more of a Xbox player. I've always preferred it more plus I'm a HUGE Halo fan (played all the games, watched all the media, read all the books and comics) probably because it's the only thing I've been there for since the beginning. When Xbox One came out I even traded in the PlayStation 3 I had to get it, also since my girlfriend has PS3 and PS4 I just play the newer games that come out on hers. Thanks again for adding me to the TA crew and I plan to help out as much as I can with the news, and reviews if they let me here! cheez
