InExile Entertainment has announced that they will be making Wasteland 3, a follow-up to their recent revival of the classic Wasteland franchise, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Mac, and Linux. The company will be crowdfunding the title through a Fig campaign, and have since met their goal of $2.75 million USD. Like Wasteland 2 before it, Wasteland 3 will be a party-based RPG in the style of classic CRPGs, although this time the setting has shifted to the frozen wastes of post-apocalyptic Colorado. Check out the pitch video, gameplay teaser, and additional information below.


From the creators of Wasteland 2 and Torment: Tides of Numenera comes Wasteland 3! Following the critically acclaimed releases of 2014ís Wasteland 2 and 2015ís Wasteland 2: Directorís Cut, fans have been clamoring for a direct sequel. Now we can bring it to you, with your help!


  • A party-based role-playing game, with a renewed focus on our trademark complex story reactivity and strategic combat.

  • By including vehicles, environmental dangers, and a revamped, more fluid action system, we are evolving on Wasteland 2's deep tactical turn-based combat and unique encounter design.

  • Play by yourself or with a friend in story-driven synchronous or asynchronous multiplayer. Choices open up (or close off) mission opportunities, areas to explore, story arcs, and lots of other content.

  • 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.

  • The game will be 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 newly-revamped dialog tree system from the celebrated writers of Torment: Tides of Numenera.

  • Simultaneously releasing to Windows, Mac, Linux, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
