InExile Entertainment has announced the development of Wasteland 3. The follow up to Wasteland 2 will be using Fig to get funding instead of kickstarter this time.

 

 

After several wildly successful Kickstarter campaigns, InExile Entertainment is ready to launch its next project. The pitch for Wasteland 3, the sequel to Wasteland 2, is ambitious. While the game itself promises to be a bit shorter at 50 hours, the graphics and the feature set will be significantly beefed up. We spoke with studio head Brian Fargo last week to get more details.

Wasteland 3 will be true to the series’ roots, allowing players to create a small party of characters and lead them through an isometric role-playing game in the classic style. It will tell the story of Team November, a group of Rangers sent on a mission to Colorado in the aftermath of a global nuclear apocalypse. In the opening sequence of the game, Fargo says, players will be stranded far from civilization and have to fend for themselves. Their biggest challenge early on will be staying alive in the sub-zero temperatures.

But, while many of the game’s systems should feel familiar to fans of the series, Fargo says his team is including bold new features that move the franchise into uncharted territory. First on the list is multiplayer, with both synchronous and asynchronous play.

Players will be able to play with a friend or with a random match from the community. Most importantly, Fargo said, they’ll be able to break the multiplayer connection at any time. It’s essentially an eject button that diverts your game’s timeline from the timeline of whomever you’re connected to.

InExile has also teamed up with Brotherhood Games, which is comprised of brothers Christopher and Nic Bischoff. While they’re also working on the Stasis and Cayne isometric adventure games, fans might recognize their work from a few clever experiments that showed Fallout 4 and BioShock Infinite from an isometric perspective. With their help, InExile intends to bring a new level of graphical polish to the wasteland.

Wasteland 2 was the perfect follow-up to not only the original Wasteland, but also the first 2 Fallout games. Here is hoping that Wasteland 3 continues the great gameplay tradition.
