The game broke new ground as one of the first cRPGs that gave the player an open, reactive world with persistent consequences
inXile Entertainment announced that their classic cRPG Wasteland, the critically acclaimed post-apocalyptic role-playing game first published in 1988, is available now via GOG.com and Steam, for PC and Mac. This is an enhanced version that runs on modern machines and at higher resolutions. Additionally, the game has expanded save game functionality over the original. Furthermore, the game has been expanded with a music track from Wasteland 2 composer Mark Morgan and now integrates texts from the original paragraph book and manual into the game.
Finally, the game offers many optional overhauls such as uprezzed portraits, paragraph voice-over and a choice of playing the game upscaled and smoothed or in the original resolution.
