Remember that ambitious project almost a month ago that saw some dedicated fans trying to recreate the entirety of Fallout: New Vegas in Fallout 4’s engine? That was mighty impressive already, but another team is currently working on the other significant entry in the Fallout series, recreating the entirety of Fallout 3 (and all it’s DLC) within Fallout 4’s engine. The Capital Wasteland never looked so good.
Yes, you read that correctly. Sheep missiles, missiles of sheep. It’s the apocalypse and you’ve just gotta make do with what you’ve got. That’s just one of the many features shown off in a new dev diary video for the upcoming Wasteland 3, as well as a better look at the character customization, gun and melee combat, and certain moral choices players can make in the game.
Fallout 76 had a really rough launch, whilst it (very) slowly gained players back looking for some more post-apocalyptic action, there was one thing that everyone complained about since the game released way back in 2018: a severe lack of NPCs and content. Bethesda has since then addressed this issue by releasing the largest, major update to the game so far: the Wastelanders update.
The post-apocalyptic RPG, Wasteland 3, has unfortunately been delayed due to the current coronavirus pandemic. In a message posted on the official Wasteland Twitter page, the developers behind the popular turn-based RPG Wasteland series, inXile entertainment, revealed that the final game will be pushed back to an August release date.
Look, for all the criticism we and everyone have thrown Bethesda’s way for Fallout 76, you can at least admit they’re trying. They probably should have tried before launch, sure, but in the ensuing 18 months or so they’ve been throwing nylon bags and kitchen sinks at trying to make this thing work. Next up is the arrival of the eagerly anticipated (at least among the F76 community) Wastelanders expansion, heralding a ton of new content as well as a Steam edition launch for Fallout 76. has just kicked off its huge Winter Sale 2019 in fine style, unveiling more than 2500 discounted DRM-free games and throwing in a free copy of inXile Entertainment’s Wasteland 2 Director's Cut Digital Classic Edition for the first 48 hours.
The true heir to the post-apocalyptic RPG throne is back. Fallout 2.
Arriving under the watchful gaze of Microsoft following its acquisition of inXile Entertainment, Wasteland 3 welcomes the pioneering post-apocalyptic RPG for a third bite at the nuclear stockpile. In Wasteland 3, players will embark on an epic quest in the American Southwest full of turn-based combat, mad cultists, and a branching storyline. It should, fingers crossed, be a fantastic follow-up to Wasteland 2, and here are the PC specs needed to run Wasteland 3.
Life is Strange 2: Episode 3 - Wastelands is due to premiere on May 9th across PC, PS4, and Xbox One, and if you don’t mind a few spoilers then Square Enix has sent along the launch trailer for this California episode.
Now we’ve got that Far Cry New Dawn tryhard out the way, it’s time to turn our attention back to Rage 2. Bethesda has just dropped a rather delightful new trailer for the first-person open-world shooter, packed full to the rafters with all sorts of maniacally inventive death-dealing.
In the words of the BFG, every so often you get an absolute fizz popper of a Humble Bundle, and the Humble Classics Return Bundle is exactly that. If you’re a big fan of RPGs, tactical strategy, and adventure games, and you also happen to not own this entire bunch, then there are potentially hundreds of hours of fantastic gaming on offer here.
