The third installment in the classic series of post-apocalyptic RPGs, developed by inXile Entertainment. The action of Wasteland 3 takes us from the sandy areas of Arizona to the ice-bound Colorado.
Wasteland 3 is the next installment of the cult series of post-apocalyptic RPGs developed by the independent studio inXile Entertainment. Compared to its predecessor, the production introduces many changes and improvements, including both the time and place of action, as well as the gameplay itself. As before, shortly after the first announcement, the game saw a crowdfunding campaign – its goal was to get at least $ 2.75 million.
In Wasteland 3, the developers abandon sandy Arizona in favor of the ice-bound state of Colorado. The player takes on the role of a member of Team November, a branch of the Wasteland Rangers. His partners were murdered, and to make matters worse, the inhabitants of this area have no idea about the existence of elite, orderly soldiers. The task that the creators put in front of us is to build our position basically from scratch, which we achieve primarily by performing various story tasks and side orders. The story told in the game is expanded over time with new threads and numerous twists, and the ending we see depends on the decisions we make.
The core of the gameplay in Wasteland 3 is exploration and fighting the enemies you encounter. Exploring the vast and dangerous territory has been improved by the implementation of vehicles that are not only means of transport, allowing you to move faster around the world, but also warehouses where you can store useful items. Clashes with opponents are still played in a turn-based system, but they were expanded with team skills, allowing the use of more advanced tactics. Of course, not all problems are solved by force – for the purposes of this title, the dialogue system has been rebuilt, which now brings to mind the scheme used in Torment: Tides of Numenera. Thus, conversations can be conducted in many ways, and in the course of discussions, it is possible to use certain skills to achieve the intended goals.
The Guardian Base, known from Wasteland 2, has gained a much greater role and is the main element of the game world. In this installment, the player must not only build it from scratch, but also implement further improvements – the operational center serves as a source of resources, as well as a place where diplomacy is conducted with the factions operating in the frosty wasteland.
Wasteland 3 can be played both alone and in the company of a friend. The production includes a cooperative variant of a multiplayer game, allowing you to have fun even in the absence of your partner – in this case, however, he must take into account the consequences of our actions.
Wasteland 3 is based on the new version of the Unity engine, used in the second part of the series. The graphic design is at a high level, and the artistic direction was given by Christopher and Nic Bischoff, who were previously responsible for the warmly received Stasis.
