Players create their own character and form a squad of rangers to explore the wastelands of southwestern America following its devastation as a result of a global nuclear war that occurred before the events of the original 1988 game. The characters will interact with a variety of NPCs and engage in turn-based tactical combat against hostile forces. Players can control all squad members in combat, customizing and upgrading each member to perform a variety of actions.
Wasteland 2 retains the original game's multi-path approach to progression, allowing players to choose different ways to overcome various obstacles, each with their own short- or long-term consequences to enhance immersion and replay value.
Originally released for the PC in 2014, Wasteland 2 will be ported to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One home consoles in October 2015. This "Director's Cut" edition (available as a free download for PC players) features a brand new game engine for overhauled graphics with improved in-game models, a refined combat system, new character customization options in the form of "Perks" and "Traits", and more.
