Wasteland 3 Dev Diary #1 – Character Creation, Customization & Combat

Wasteland 3

Deep Silver have released the first dev diary for inXile Entertainment’s Wasteland 3; focused on character creation, customization, and combat.

This dev-diary focuses on the major aspects of the RPG. These include the creation and customization of up to six Rangers (all with their own perks and abilities), an upgradable battle truck, and turn-based combat.

You can find Dev Diary #1 – Character Creation, Customization & Combat below.

You can find the full rundown (via Steam) below.

In Wasteland 3 you take command of a squad of Desert Rangers, lawmen and women in a post-nuclear world, trying to rebuild society from the ashes. More than a century after the bombs fell, you’re fighting a losing battle to keep your beloved Arizona alive. Then the self-proclaimed Patriarch of Colorado radios, promising aid if you’ll do a job he can only entrust to an outsider—rescue his land from the ambitions of his three bloodthirsty children.

You’re dispatched on a desperate quest from the scorching deserts to the snowy mountains to start from scratch, building a new base, finding a snow-worthy vehicle, training new recruits, and fighting your way through hostile frozen wastes. All the while, you’ll have to decide who to trust in this land torn apart by corruption, intrigue, warring factions, crazed cultists, cutthroat gangs, and bitter sibling rivalries. Build a reputation for yourself by making decisions that will profoundly impact Colorado, its inhabitants and the story you experience. Will you be Colorado’s savior or its worst nightmare?

Wasteland 3 is a squad-based RPG from inXile entertainment, featuring challenging tactical turn-based combat and a deep, reactive story full of twists, turns, and brutal ethical decisions that will keep you hooked whether you’re a Wasteland veteran or new to the series. Create a squad of up to six Rangers and customize them with perks and abilities geared to your playstyle. You even get your own battle truck, which you can upgrade into a hardened war beast, bristling with weapons, to help mow down your enemies.

In case you missed it, we reported on Wasteland 3 being banned, resubmitted, and approved for sale in Australia. The game was also recently delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Wasteland 3 launches August 28th on Windows PC (via GOG, and Steam), PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. In case you missed it, you can find our hands-on preview here.
