Wasteland 2 is no longer a game of the year, but it will get a director’s cut

, | News

This is the trailer for the Director’s Cut of Wasteland 2. Developers inXile had previously announced this expanded, improved, and better balanced version of their successfully crowd-funded RPG earlier, but that was when it was going to be called The Game of the Year Edition. Director’s Cut is a much better sounding name. It suggests that this is the version that people should play because it’s what the creator intended. Game of the Year Edition just sounds like a budget repackage of the game with DLC, which doubly hurts because it’s coming to consoles for the first time. The Director’s Cut brings Unity 5, over 8,000 additional recorded dialog lines, and controller support.

Wasteland 2: Director’s Cut will launch in the late Summer for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Owners of the current PC version will get it as a free upgrade.
