About Wasteland 3

About this game

Developed and Published by inXile Entertainment.

Experience a post-apocalyptic setting with Wasteland's third entry into the series! Take a party and engage in turn-based strategy gameplay, as you'll have to make arduous choices and survive the post-nuclear wasteland.

Welcome to the End of the World!

The end is here! Take part in this party- and turn-based strategy combat as the world will dynamically react to everything that you do. Story and gameplay elements will be affected by your decisions!

RPG and Story-heavy Elements Built At Its Core

Engage in a story-heavy narrative where all of your decisions will affect an aspect of the gameplay — your repercussions don't come instantaneously, and you'll need to live with the consequences of your actions. Experience full English voice acting and go on an immersive adventure for veterans of the genre and newcomers alike.

Survive the Frozen Wasteland

Face difficult moral choices in the freezing wasteland of Colorado — survival is tough, and a pleasurable outcome isn't guaranteed. Work for your survival or die trying.

Revamped Combat Systems

Take control of numerous systems to deal with the foes that stand in your path. Use vehicles, environmental hazards, and a fully-reworked action system meant to encourage tactical, yet explosive, turn-based combat.

Make Your Team Your Own

Build a squad with the detailed character creation, featuring numerous skills, perks, and quirks to let you go deep into the customisation of your team! Gear up to six different Rangers and accommodate them to your playstyle.

A Brand-new Graphical Standard for the Franchise

With grand graphical upgrades in contrast to its predecessor, Wasteland 3 invites the player to take in the scenery and witness the newly-built land of Colorado, with character animations, first-person conversations, and landscapes that'll make you feel the chill of the post-apocalyptic world.

Solo & Co-op Experience

Experience the entirety of Wasteland 3 either alone and face the harsh cold of Colorado or with a friend! This story-driven co-op will allow you to experience the significance of having a friend accompany you through the wasteland, and which missions, opportunities, areas, story arcs, and more will open and close depending on your decisions.

In simple terms, the game is alright. It's not the best but, it does the job. Everything is kind of mediocre, nothing stands out as amazing but also not horrible. If you like the genre and the setting, chances are you are gonna enjoy yourself or at least pass some time with it.

This was definitely a budget title, but I enjoyed my time building my team and fighting through the wasteland. The comedy and quirky characters was pretty engaging too.

As a fun of Wastaland 2 I went for Wasteland 3 as a obvious choice. Although I found graphics and gameplay better, I somehow found story too 'unlinear' with lots of side quests which made my interest to go low quickly. Also removing traveling through map somehow broke immersion for me. It is good game but not having enough time to experience overall sections of map at once breaks it for me and leave somehow disconnected feeling.

Worth the money, especially when on sale. 5/5

A definite improvement over Wasteland 2, this title streamlines the gameplay and offers a more intuitive and pleasant system. The art direction and the production values are top notch and the voiced dialogue really brings to life the postapocalyptic world of Wasteland. It is a real treat for any fan of the genre and a perfect entry point for newcomers to the Wasteland universe and veterans alike. Highly recommended.

This is my impressions so far after around 5-6 hours. Isometric RPG with guns. Combat is similar to x-com, turn based with cover mechanics, the other parts of the game are real time. A lot of the skills can give additional dialogue choices and as far as i've seen the skill choice is not always the best choice which i like, unlike other games where if you see a skill choice, just pick that one. It also have a co-op mode. I Started playing with a friend and the co-op seems to work pretty good. So far i like it alot, if you are a fan of Isometric RPG's you should give it a try.
