Wasteland 2 likely out in September

As new update paves the way for launch.

inXile Entertainment has advised that post-apocalyptic role-playing game Wasteland 2 will likely launch in September - not August as planned.

The game will probably slip into the first or second week of September, project lead Chris Keenan wrote on the Wasteland 2 Kickstarter page, due to "the fulfillment of the physical goods and discs". Expect an exact release date soon.

Elsewhere, the Steam Early Access version has been updated with a raft of improvements. inXile has run a balance pass across the entire game, tweaking enemy AI, damage, weapons, dropsets and skill use. It's added a mini-map, optimised memory and load times and made visual and functional improvements to the user interface. There's also new audio and better visual effects.

This will probably be the last update for the game before launch. But when the game does release proper it'll come with a day one update for physical disc backers. If your copy is digital the first download will be for the day one update and the final game.

"This has been a labour of love from the entire team and I'm incredibly proud with what they have achieved," Keenan said.

"So much of their personalities are found around each corner in the game. We hope you enjoy the attention to detail in the world we all have created."
