Wasteland 3's site says that it's been over 100 years since the bombs fell and the world is struggling. Colorado is falling apart. The Patriarch of Colorado has pledged his help, but in return the Desert Rangers must go up against his three children, each more dangerous than he is. It's a tactical RPG, so players will be building bases and training recruits. A post-apocalyptic game isn't going to be easy, and players will have to choose who to help of the people they meet along the way. Players will be relying on skills like Leadership, Kiss Ass, and Hard Ass to keep order.

He stresses that it's an RPG, and choices will have effects.

Wasteland 3 will release on May 19th 2020, and is available for pre-order now.

Hey, I'm Heidi! I've just finished studying a Masters in English Literature, but I've been obsessed with gaming since long before then. I began on the PS2 with Spyro, before graduating to the Xbox 360 and disappearing into Skyrim. I'm now a loyal RPG fan, but I still like to explore other genres — when I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, or being lured back into Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3!
