One of the most cherished Western RPGs returns on February 25th in newly remastered form. Wasteland Remastered will be available on Steam, GOG, and on Xbox/PC via Xbox Game Pass and features the following updates:
Wasteland Remastered retains the spirit of the original game while updating visuals and audio.
The original game’s physical storybook is available in-game, fully illustrated and with full voice over.
An expanded musical score from the “Wasteland 1 – The Original Classic” release.
Old bugs that have been around since Reagan was president have been fixed.
Survive the apocalypse from the comfort of your couch with game controller support.
Quality of life improvements that make the post-apocalypse a little friendlier.
Originally released in 1988, Wasteland brought the post-apocalypse to video games and inspired a genre. Play one of history’s defining RPGs with completely overhauled graphics, sound, and expanded musical score.
The year is 2087, nearly a century after an all-out nuclear war turned vast swaths of the Earth into a radioactive hellscape. You are a Desert Ranger, a band of stalwart lawmen who are the only hope left in what was once the American southwest, and good people’s last defense against hunger, sickness, ravaging raiders, and mutants.
Now something more secretive and sinister is menacing humanity, and it’s your job to investigate. Recruit help and follow leads—the choices you make will shape the world around you. Choose wisely, your life and the lives of those you’re sworn to protect depend on it.
With inXile joining Xbox Game Studios it’s fantastic to see the studio remastering some of their classics for old and new audiences alike. It’s hard to believe it’s been over 30 years since release so if nothing else, it will be a great nostalgia trip. And with the game coming to Game Pass at launch, you have no reason not to give it a try!
