The Fun Pimps and inXile Entertainment have announced that 7 Days To Die and Wasteland 2 are available on Steam via their early access program. 7 Days To Die is priced at 27,19€ until December 19th, while Wasteland 2 is priced at 44,99€.
7 Days To Die is Minecraft meets Walking Dead game, in which players can scavenge the abandoned cities of the buildable and destructable voxel world for supplies or explore the wilderness to gather raw materials to build their own tools, weapons, traps, fortifications and shelters.
As the team noted, in coming updates the aforementioned features will be expanded upon with even more depth and a wider variety of choices to survive the increasing dangers of the world.
Wasteland 2, on the other hand, is the direct sequel to 1988’s Wasteland, the first-ever post-apocalyptic computer RPG and the inspiration behind the Fallout series. As inXile Entertainment claimed, until Wasteland, no other CRPG had ever allowed players to control and command individual party members for tactical purposes or given them the chance to make moral choices that would directly affect the world around them.
Wasteland was a pioneer in multi-path problem solving, dripping in choice and consequence and eschewing the typical one-key-per-lock puzzle solving methods of its peers, in favor of putting the power into players’ hands to advance based on their own particular play style. And Wasteland 2 promises to stay true to those roots.
