Less than a week after launching its Wasteland 3 crowdfunding campaign on Fig, inXile Entertainment has already attracted 99% ($2,744,350) of its $2,750,000 funding goal. The initiative debuted on the funding portal on Wednesday and secured over $1,600,000 on the first day.
Wasteland 3 is described as a party-based roleplaying game (RPG) with an emphasis on deep reactivity, deployability, and strategic combat. The game’s story reads:
“You start the game as the sole survivor of Team November, a Ranger squad dispatched to the icy Colorado wastes. This is a land of buried secrets, lost technology, fearsome lunatics, and deadly factions. No one here has ever heard of the Desert Rangers. Your reputation is yours to build from scratch, and your choices may save this land or doom it. With a renewed focus on macro-reactivity, you’ll be picking between warring factions, deciding whether locations are destroyed or saved, and making other far reaching decisions that have a marked impact on the shape of your world.”
“These Ranger Team Missions are community goals that will let you unlock bonuses for Wasteland 3 – new digital and physical rewards that go into existing reward bundles, new content included in the game, and more! We’re off to such a great start, 84% – wait, no it just moved, 85%! -funded and only just into day 2, but we know we can keep the momentum going and we know that all our Rangers out there are the ones who can get the job done!”

Estimated delivery for the game is late 2019.
