Game release: “Wasteland 2: Director’s Cut” (PC, PS4, Xbox One)

Kickstarter projects tend to evoke nostalgic feelings in their backers, and InXile Entertainment‘s Wasteland 2 is no different, but now available in a much improved Director’s Cut.

Due to time management I haven’t been able to cover a lot of RPGs, but I’m always interested in their origins and what the developers make of them if they had the resources to resurrect those classic games. Wasteland 2: Director’s Cut is an enhanced version of the much-praised sequel to the 1988 post-apocalyptic game, but released in a fair way for the consumer.

Those who’ve purchased the original game will get all the updates for free: a complete graphics overhaul due to the newest version of the Unity 5 engine, support of controllers, over 8 000 lines of new voice-over dialogue, and other gameplay changes, making this the definitive version.

For those who’re unfamiliar with the game, it was developed by a company whose founder Brian Fargo made the original Fallout and The Bard’s Tale, the latter of which will also get a sequel soon (I’m very excited about, as I loved the newest version). Wasteland 2 might look and play like an old turn-based RPG (with a bucketload of blood and gore and an even more surprising 16+ age rating for Germany), but with the renaissance of the post-apocalyptic setting and more strategy games for PC, this should be a treat for those missing the olden days. The Director’s Cut is now also available for current gen consoles as well.
