Wasteland 3 Announced For Xbox One, Crowdfunding Begins In October

inXile Entertainment has today announced that Wasteland 3 is in the works.

The post-apocalyptic RPG/strategy game had a 20-year break between the first and second instalments of the titles, but now we're seeing the announcement of a third entry in the series merely two years after the last one was released on PC.

The game will follow the story of Team November's only survivor - a squad of rangers that were sent off to Colorado, an area that has been sealed off from the outside world thanks to the nuclear winter blanketing the planet. 

As such, you're tasked with setting up a new ranger base in the area, and dealing with the various factions that have popped up since Colorado went dark. 

Wasteland 3 will be adding in multiplayer, too - something very different for the series so far. You can play the game's story with a friend in co-op, which will open up new locations, missions and narrative beats for you to explore.

As with previous games in the series, Wasteland will focus on vast branching stories and deep, satisfying RPG systems.

Wasteland 3’s crowdfunding campaign will launch on October 5th 2016 through Fig and is intended for simultaneous release on PC, Mac, Linux, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

  • Wasteland 2 was a blast and, along with Divinity: Original Sin, translated very well to consoles. Very much looking forward to this game. I'm usually against donating to crowdfunding but I might just make an exception for this one.
  • I haven't gotten the 2nd one but I know it is godly cannot wait for this and Divinity Original Sin 2
  • Wasteland 2 is one of my top five games this gen. Amazing story and side-quests, and absolutely perfect combat. I'm not in love with them using Fig for this campaign though. There's an interview he did with Polygon that explains why they switched from Kickstarter (basically he thinks he'll get more "big" pledges from Fig, where on KS most people are just using it as a pre-order platform). However, it's such a smaller community. Even Rock Band tried a Fig campaign and failed. I'll check it out though.
  • Dual dialogue is almost a needed feature for this game. It's what made Divinity such a nice co-op experience.
  • Liked the game, but absolutely hated the combat system. It's nothing against turn based strategy, because I play XCOM & have no issue with the combat in it.
  • Rock band failed because they asked for like a mil
  • Wasteland 2 is possibly the best video game ever created. Will definitely get 3. Since they are adding mp, I hope it can be done locally as well. $ player local co-op wasteland would be the best thing to happen to the gaming industry.
  • @6 I read they're asking for over $2.5 mil for this.
  • Rock Band should have been able to manage a million, but no one knows what Fig is. However, if the property is desirable enough, people will come out for it. Psychonauts 2 got $3.8 million on Fig, Indivisible from the Skullgirls dev got $1.9 million on Indiegogo.
