Wasteland 2 Vision Document Revealed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

inXile Entertainment has released a vision document for its upcoming Wasteland 2. A sequel to the classic post-apocalyptic RPG of the 80's, Wasteland 2 will be a top down, turn-based, tactical RPG that the developers have promised will "stay true to its roots."

Game Mechanics and Tactics that allow for your approach and your play-style: Combat in Wasteland 2 is turn-based and tactical, the approach to battles requires strategy, even choices in how to outfit and customize your gun greatly modify your chance of success. Ammo is a resource. Itís scarce. Healing is tough. Your fellow Desert Rangers have various strengths and weakness, and your recruits often have personality traits you need to balance and keep an eye on, depending on the encounter.

Flank opponents, switch gear, learn to use fog of war and line of sight to outflank opponents and go for quick kills before an alert can be sounded... or you can approach a combat simply and aggressively, taking a lot more damage and damaging your gear but reaching your objective quicker.

If thatís not to your liking, use patience and demolitions to lure your opponents into a prepared kill zone of traps, explosives, and sniper bullets that can cut through opposition like a proton knife through butter. Itís your call, your choice, and your risk Ė and enjoyed through your game-play style, not ours.

We give you great control during combat, but it doesnít have to be a slog. While tough fights are just that, you can get through minor threats quickly. Once combat is initiated, turn based progression begins, but if you have the overwhelming advantage you can just let your guys go to work without micro-managing the tactics.

We give you the tools and the rules - then stand back and let you do the rest.
