Wasteland 2 is the direct sequel to the first ever post-apocalyptic computer RPG, Wasteland, which was named by IGN as one of the top 25 PC games of all time, Computer Gaming World named it the Adventure Game of the year in 1988, and it was short-listed for inclusion in the Smithsonian Institution’s current “Art of the Computer Game” exhibition. W2 was successfully crowd funded through Kickstarter.
And here we have a video showing Wasteland 2 gameplay and it looks cool, I must say.
The first Wasteland took place in a hostile, post-apocalyptic world of American Southwest and W2 is set in an alternate history timeline, in which a nuclear holocaust took place in 1998 in relation to an impact event involving a cluster of meteors that sparked a global nuclear war.
Brian Fargo stated that the team aims to ship Wasteland 2 around October 2013, and on July 10, 2012 it was announced that the original Wasteland would be bundled with it.
We need good RPG’s dammit.
