Wasteland 2 Hits Steam Early Access After Successful Kickstarter

wasteland2Gamers wishing they backed the Kickstarter campaign for Wasteland 2 can rejoice. The game is now available to everyone via Steam Early Access.

inXile Entertainment’s post-apocalyptic RPG raised just short of $3 million in a Kickstarter-powered funding effort that ended on April 17 of 2012. It isn’t inXile’s only fully-funded Kickstarter campaign, and in fact it isn’t even the company’s most successful. The campaign for Torment: Tides of Numenera raised over $4 million and ended in April of this year, making the company one of the rare examples of crowdfunders to use the medium multiple times for multiple successful projects.

In an early review of the game in August, Rock Paper Shotgun said Wasteland 2 was “looking increasingly like one of the most delicious fruits of Kickstarter.”

Those buying in for early access will receive the following perks above and beyond early access to the game itself…

  • A free copy of Wasteland 1 – The Original Classic.
  • Two digital novellas set in The Wasteland world.
  • Mark Morgan’s Wasteland 2 original sound track in digital format.
  • An incredible digital concept art book showcasing many of the world’s characters and environments.
