Wasteland 3 Pre-Order Bonuses Appear on the Microsoft Store Ahead of X019

By Sean Carey,
InXile Entertainment's upcoming post-apocalyptic RPG Wasteland 3 has appeared on the Microsoft Store, along with some pre-order bonuses. Although much isn't detailed in the Store description, we could hear more about Wasteland 3 tonight at X019, including a potential release date.

If you do decide to pre-order Wasteland 3, according to the store, you will receive a Ranger General’s Hat and Glasses, Polished Ranger Badge, Snow Camo Weapons. It does say in the description that these items will "give you a head start in the wasteland." Not much else is detailed about these pre-order bonuses so we don't know what these items are or what benefits they could bring to the player.

Wasteland 3 is the follow up to Wasteland 2 and was entirely crowdfunded back in November 2016. It smashed its original funding target of $2.75 million raising $3.1 million with around 18,000 backers pledging their money and support. It has also hit all of its Stretch Goals which adds further Ranger customisation options, a talking car companion, customisable Ranger Squad insignias for your team and base and an in-game marketplace area called The Bizzare.

In Wasteland 3, you play as a Desert Ranger who is fighting a losing battle to keep Arizona alive. The Patriarch of Colorado has offered support to the Desert Rangers if you take on a task that can only be entrusted to an outsider. You must rescue his land from his three bloodthirsty children. Players will travel north to build a new base, use vehicles, train recruits and explore the frozen wastes of Colorado. You will have to make difficult moral choices and make sacrifices that will change the game's world. A happy outcome is never guaranteed.

Unfortunately, the store listing doesn't give us a price or a release date. However, Wasteland 3 has been confirmed as one of the 24 playable games at X019, and there will be more news on the title in tonight's Inside Xbox Mixer stream, so we should know more very soon.

In this post-apocalyptic RPG you must travel north to build a new base, equip a vehicle, train recruits, explore Colorado's hostile frozen wastes, and deal with the locals—but remember, every choice has a consequence.
