inXile has released the second developer diary for Wasteland 3, focusing on the game’s world, story and characters. In this dev diary, we get a glimpse of the game’s grim vision of Colorado and its powerful inhabitants.

Wasteland 3 is a new isometric RPG that takes players from the radioactive heat of the American Southwest to the perpetual nuclear winter of Colorado. The game promises to feature challenging tactical combat and hours of exploration. It will also have a deep, reactive story full of twists, turns, and brutal ethical decisions.

The game will have both in single-player and co-op modes. Thus, players can create a squad of up to six Rangers. Players can also customize them with perks and abilities geared to their playstyle. Furthermore, players will get their own battle truck—the Kodiak—that they can upgrade into a hardened war beast, bristling with weapons, to help mow down their enemies.

Lastly, Wasteland 3 will release on August 28th.
