Fans of Wasteland 2: Director's Cut
are in for a treat. Just yesterday, Wasteland 3
successfully met its funding goal on the new crowd funding site Fig after just four days
. The crowd funding will not end until November 3rd, so there's still time for even more features to be added, but what's already announced should please even fans with the highest expectations.
You are the sole survivor of Team November, a Ranger squad that had been sent on a mission to the icy wastes of Colorado. In this land, no one has ever heard of the Desert Rangers so you'll need to rebuild your reputation by making choices with huge impact. But even as the sole survivor, you're not truly alone.
In Wasteland 3
, you'll be able to join forces with a friend for an entirely unique experience. While the game can be played entirely alone, playing in the same world as a friend can have interesting consequences. Of course you can play together, but it sounds like you can also play apart. While one friend works to help a villager, perhaps you will work with that villager's enemy and disrupt your friend all while telling him you have his back. The potential for such a system is immense, and developer inXile Entertainment is hopeful they'll be able to meet the expectations.
The developers are also excited about the setting. When you think post-apocalyptic, you usually think deserts. In Wasteland 2
, players explored overgrown cities. The developers are pleased to expand the game into the icy reaches of Colorado. They imagine that crossing a bleak snowfield to find a small village will strike a great sense of isolation. They also know the world is more than just the way it looks, and they're working to ensure the dialogue improvements they've made in more recent games make their way into Wasteland 3
as well.Wasteland 3
currently has no known release date, but it's definitely coming to Xbox One.
