The apocalypse is getting a makeover in Wasteland 2

, | News

Wasteland 2 is getting an upgrade. Developer inXile Entertainment is releasing Wasteland 2: Game of the Year Edition as a free update to all owners of the game on Windows, Mac, or Linux. The improved version of the RPG will be upgraded to the newest Unity 5 build and takes advantage of all the graphical bells and whistles that the engine offers. The desolate, post-apocalyptic nightmare will be spruced up with redone character models, better lighting, and updated textures. Along with the visual improvements, inXile is adding voices to companions, implementing a system that will let combatants target enemies’ specific body parts, and they are introducing a perk feature to character progression.

Finally, to improve on the gameplay experience and ensure the above features are fitted in seamlessly, we’re also overhauling game balance, item drops, and reworking the majority of combat encounters throughout the game. You’ll need all your training and smarts to master the new dangers of the Arizona wastes.

Wasteland 2: Game of the Year Edition is coming to PC later this year. It will also be available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One as the initial release on those platforms.
