inXile Entertainment has announced that Wasteland 2, the sequel to the original Wasteland launched in 1988, will ship at the end of August 2014. The company also added the entire Arizona region to the Steam Early Access version of the game.
Wasteland 2 is a post-apocalyptic turn-based game set in an alternative history. America lays lifeless in the hot ashes and radioactive embers of a deadly nuclear holocaust and players must take command of an elite squad of desert Rangers, formed in the time-honoured tradition of the Texas and Arizona Rangers. Setting out across post-apocalyptic and treacherous landscapes players try to help the last remaining remnants of humanity in their struggle for survival against hordes of desperate bandits, insane criminals, decaying mutants and much worse.
