inXile entertainment—the studio led by Interplay founder and Wasteland co-creator Brian Fargo—along with Deep Silver, premiered a brand new trailer for the highly anticipated Wasteland 3 during the Inside Xbox show.
In this trailer the Patriarch of Colorado summons the Desert Rangers to his land and warns of the dangers they’ll encounter. With their home state of Arizona in dire need of the aid the Patriarch is offering, the Rangers have no choice but to brave the frozen wasteland, deal with the cults and gangs that inhabit it, and hope the Patriarch will stay true to his word.
Wasteland 3 has a large presence on the gamescom floor, with over 25 stations available for attendees to try a first-ever hands demo. At the same time, the Alpha will be released to backers who supported the title on its initial Fig crowdfunding campaign.
Wasteland 3 is set to release on Xbox One, Xbox Game Pass, PlayStation® 4, Windows, Mac, and Linux in Spring 2020. The legendary series, which pioneered the post-apocalypse genre in video games, returns players to the role of Desert Rangers, lawmen in a post-nuclear world working to rebuild civilisation from the ashes. Trading the dry, dusty heat of the American southwest for a perpetually frozen Colorado, Wasteland 3 features a number of chilling new locations where the Rangers receive an even frostier reception from the locals.
