Nearly four and a half years after securing $2.9 million from 61,290 backers on Kickstarter for its video game Wasteland 2, video game studio inXile Entertainment is set to launch a crowdfunding campaign on Fig for the third game of the series, Wasteland 3.
Wasteland 3 is described as a party-based roleplaying game (RPG) with an emphasis on deep reactivity, deployability, and strategic combat. It will be available in single player as well as synchronous/asynchronous multiplayer and will be released on Windows Mac, Linux PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. inXile Entertainment is seeking $2.75 million for the game’s development.
The company announced in a press release:
“Play by yourself or with a friend in story-driven synchronous or asynchronous multiplayer. The core of Wasteland 3 will still be a rich single-player experience. If you play with a friend while both online together, you’ll be able to share many missions, and join up to hit key story beats, but you can also split up and cover more ground. Once a game is started, you can play Wasteland 3 while your friend is offline, and do a lot of missions without them.”
inXile Entertainment also noted:
“By making the decision to include multiplayer early on in the process, we will be able to design a game that is true to the core principles of the Wasteland franchise and our studio. Wasteland 3 can be played as an offline, single-player game, and is built from the ground up with a focus on story and reactivity that makes no sacrifices to the multiplayer experience. At the same time, co-op players will enjoy working together to change Wasteland 3’s highly reactive world… or finding ways to destroy what their friend has worked to accomplish.”
Wasteland 3’s Fig campaign will kick off on October 5th (next Wednesday).
