Wasteland 3 Announced, Will Seek Funding via Fig Campaign

inXile Entertainment has announced that it has plans to develop Wasteland 3 and that it will seek out $2.75M via a Fig crowdfunding campaign that will offer rewards, accredited investment and unaccredited investment opportunities.

Wasteland 3 will be a party-based RPG as its predecessors that features turn-based combat and more. A new multiplayer component will be added that brings synchronous or asynchronous play. Players will also engage in building a Ranger Base and much more.

Bring a Friend

For the first time in the history of the Wasteland franchise, you will be able to take a friend with you on your journey into the post-apocalyptic wastes! Wasteland 3 opens up the possibility to play through the campaign with a friend; both of you controlling your own squad of Rangers.

The core of Wasteland 3 will still be a rich single-player experience. If you play with a friend while both online together, you'll be able to share many missions, and join up to hit key story beats, but you can also split up and cover more ground. Once a game is started, you can play Wasteland 3 while your friend is offline, and do a lot of missions without them. Be aware, however, that the actions you take while your friend is off-line are not without consequence!

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.

Wasteland 3 will be release simultaneously for Windows, Mac, Linux, PlayStation 4 and XBox One.
