Wasteland 2 was one of the big Kickstarter game successes from a couple of months ago, with the game earning more than enough to go into production. It’ll be the sequel to the classic post-apocalyptic RPG and the developers promise that it’ll be just as “hardcore” as the original was. If you’ve never played the original Wasteland, you’ll be able to if you purchase the sequel as Brian Fargo announced today:
“The #1 request we had during our Kickstarter campaign was to have the ability to play the first game. Fortunately EA has continued to support us on this project and has granted us the ability to bring the original to the players,” said Brian Fargo, of inXile Entertainment. “It is great to be able to make Wasteland available for those feeling nostalgic or who want to experience it for the first time. It certainly will not be a pre-requisite to understand Wasteland 2, but it adds some extra flavor if you did play the prequel.”
Wasteland 2 is hopefully due sometime next year on PC, Mac, and Linux.
