Wasteland 3 is another part of the cult cycle of postapocalyptic RPGs, supervised by the independent studio inXile Entertainment. Compared to its predecessor, the game introduces many changes and improvements, covering both the time and place of action and the game itself. As before, shortly after the first announcement, the game was faced with a crowdfunding campaign, with the aim of raising at least USD 2.75 million

Plot

In Wasteland 3, the developers are abandoning sandy Arizona in favour of the ice-capped state of Colorado. The player takes on the role of a member of Team November, a branch of the Void Rangers, who receives the mission that is crucial for the existence of the organization - he cooperates with the Patriarch of the region, who is the only person who can provide the Rangers with the necessary resources.

Unfortunately, on the way to the site, the troops are ambushed and most of their members are murdered. Those who have managed to survive try to build their position in an unfavourable place from scratch. The story told in the game is expanded over time with new threads and numerous twists and turns of the action, and the end of the story depends on our decisions.

Gameplay

The core of the game in Wasteland 3 is the exploration and fight against enemies. Visiting the vast and dangerous territory has been improved by the implementation of a vehicle called Kodiak - it allows us to move around the world faster and sometimes even supports us in combat. The combat is still based on the turn-based system, but it has been expanded with additional skills, allowing for more advanced tactics.

Of course, not all problems are solved by force - for the purposes of this game, the dialogue system has been rebuilt, which now resembles the scheme used in Torment: Tides of Numenera. Talks can therefore be held in many ways, and during the conversation, there is the possibility of using many skills to achieve the desired objectives.

Like Wasteland 2, we also supervise the Guardians' Database, but this time it plays a much greater role and is an important part of the game world. By playing, we are recruiting more people, thereby increasing the capacity of our operations centre - a place of rest, a resource and even a prison for captured criminals.

An important role is also played by the moral choices and the reputation they create among the various factions. The decisions made by the player affect the progress and end of the game.

Multiplayer

In Wasteland 3 we can play alone or with another player. The core of the game is a story campaign, which we can also experience in cooperation with another person. It is worth noting that the variant of multiplayer game used in game allows for fun even in the absence of a mate - in this case, however, he must take into account the consequences of our actions.

Technical aspects

Wasteland 3 is based on the new version of the Unity engine, used in the second part of the series. The graphic design is on a high level and the artistic direction was given by Christopher and Nic Bischoff, previously responsible for the well acclaimed Stasis.
