After their purchase of inXile Entertainment, we’ve been excited to see what form Wasteland 3 would take when it was eventually revealed.
Based on the trailer shown during Xbox’s conference, Wasteland 3 appears to adopt a much lighter and jovial tone than its predecessors. The trailer gives us a glimpse at the game’s Colorado setting as we’re guided through by a gruff old prospector type who certainly appears to enjoy a snifter of the devil’s nectar.
Despite its lighter tone, we’re expecting Wasteland 3 will be as punishing and unforgiving as its predecessors. Based on the enormous mech-spider that bursts from the canyon, there’s certainly a fight to be had.
Though inXile is a Microsoft subsidiary, Wasteland 3 will still be releasing on PlayStation 4 and PC as well, probably in an effort to honour the crowdfunding reward tiers that would have helped in initially funding production on the game.
