Wasteland 3 was announced last week, along with a bunch of exciting added features and a new setting. If you found yourself warming to the idea of a frozen new landscape (the icy Colorado wastes), co-op and cars coming to the RPG series, you can now put some cash down to ensure the game gets made.
Deciding which of our upcoming PC games to buy is a harder choice than there's ever been in an RPG.
Wasteland 3's crowdfunding campaign is skipping Kickstarter, instead asking for $2.75 million on Fig, a platform that allows people to pledge larger amounts and gain equity in the project. You can also opt for lower tiers and go for the ordinary Kickstarter-esque rewards, if you so wish.
Returning backers of all inXile projects will receive a $5 discount on rewards backing, while anyone backing within the first 48 hours will receive a free game, either the horror adventure game STASIS or the old school turn-based post-apocalyptic RPG UnderRail.
At the time of writing, the game has already raised over half its goal.
“If a platform like Fig had existed back when we kickstarted the Wasteland 2 campaign, investors would have been very happy,” said Brian Fargo, CEO, inXile Entertainment.
“We want to take our Wasteland franchise to a darker and brutal post-apocalyptic setting that builds on the foundation of Wasteland 2. A game that is ambitious in reactivity and with new features like multi-player and the integration of vehicles into the world.”
