Wasteland 2 Previewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

The Gamers Hub recently posted a preview of InXile Entertainment' upcoming Wasteland 2 RPG. 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 promise will "stay true to its roots."

From the preview:

Not only is Wasteland a beautiful game to look at, with its modern veneer alongside the isometric view that the classic provided. The maps are also absolutely huge, providing plenty of space to explore and to experiment with combat, and hidden almost everywhere is a quest or side mission that you wouldn’t expect to come across.

Fans will also be pleased to know that these quests are still like that of the original. Their dark and morbidly funny lines of dialogue work even better than they did before thanks to the injection of some internet memes to ground this gritty adventure in a reality we’re all rather familiar with. One instance saw the need to clear a minefield for our band of Desert Rangers to pass through unharmed. Naturally, this meant tempting across a screaming goat from the other side, and yes, they’re voiced by the wonderful screaming goats of YouTube fame. Another instance saw us come across an ill bed-ridden woman who’s husband had disappeared when looking for medicine. In the playthrough we saw the decision was made to… euthanize… the lady – at which point her husband turned up from his expedition. And, there’s no karma bar or good-evil split anywhere here, it’s just completely down to you and how you want to play.
