All Hail Mecha Reagan

x019 closed out with a trailer for Wasteland 3 which gave us a good look at the ancestor of the Fallout franchise. Set to a haunting rendition of "Land of Confusion", we got to see some of the spectacular visuals of this upcoming game. We also finally got a reveal for the Wasteland 3 release date.

After months of waiting and much anticipation, we know now the Wasteland 3 release date: May 19, 2020.

 

What to Expect on the Wasteland 3 Release Date

While we didn't know the Wasteland 3 release date until now, we did have a fair few facts already revealed to us. Here's a quick breakdown from the game's official website:

  • 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.

You can keep up with the latest info about this game at its backer site on Fig; don't forget to also check out its official website! You'll be able to pick up this (probably great) game on May 19, 2020.
