inXile’s Wasteland 3 Set To Debut On May 19th, 2020

by Sage Ashford

Publisher Deep Silver and developer inXile Entertainment have confirmed the release date for their upcoming Wasteland 3 RPG during Microsoft’s recent X019 conference. More from inXile themselves below:

Following the critically acclaimed releases of Wasteland 2 and Wasteland 2: Director’s Cut, Wasteland 3 is currently in development, releasing May 19, 2020.

  • A party-based roleplaying game, with a renewed focus on our trademark complex story reactivity and strategic combat.

  • Adding a player vehicle, environmental dangers, and a revamped, more fluid action system, we are evolving on Wasteland 2‘s tactical turn-based combat and unique encounter design.

  • Play solo or co-op with a friend in a story-driven experience where your choices will open up (or close off) mission opportunities, areas to explore, story arcs, and more.

  • Your Ranger Base is a core part of the experience. As you help the local people and establish a reputation in Colorado, quests and narrative will force you to make decisions on how to lead.

  • Set in the savage lands of frozen Colorado, where survival is difficult and a happy outcome is never guaranteed. Players will face difficult moral choices and make sacrifices that will change the game world.

  • Wasteland 3 will feature a deep and engaging story utilizing a new dialog system, with all of it fully voiced.

Though Microsoft announced the acquisition of inXile Entertainment during X018, this game was worked on with Deep Silver as its original publisher and was crowdfunded via Fig, so this game — much like Obsidian’s work with The Outer Worlds being a join project with Take-Two’s Private Division — will be multi-platform.
As such, Wasteland 3 will release for Steam on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
