inXile Entertainment announced today Wasteland 3. Wasteland 3 will be set in the lands of frozen Colorado, and will confront players with difficult moral choices and sacrifices. A crowdfunding campaign will be launched on October 5th on FIG, and you can view its prototype screenshots below.
Wasteland 3 will feature vehicles, environmental dangers, a revamped and more fluid action system, an upgradeable Ranger Base and a new dialog tree system.
In addition, the game will feature a multiplayer mode from the get-go. Players will be able to team up with a friend, each of them controlling their own squad of Rangers, and they can either complete missions together or split up to complete different missions.
“By making the decision to include multiplayer early on in the process, we will be able to design a game that is true to the core principles of the Wasteland franchise and our studio. Wasteland 3 can be played as an offline, single-player game, and is built from the ground up with a focus on story and reactivity that makes no sacrifices to the multiplayer experience. At the same time, co-op players will enjoy working together to change Wasteland 3’s highly reactive world… or finding ways to destroy what their friend has worked to accomplish.”
