Wasteland 2 Game of the Year Edition a free upgrade for PC, Mac and Linux owners


Wasteland 2 Game of the Year Edition is a free upgrade to all owners of the game on PC, Mac and Linux, developer inXile has announced.

Wasteland 2 Game of the Year Edition is an enhanced and expanded version of inXile's Kickstarted old-school post-apocalyptic role-playing game, and is due out late summer.

The visuals benefit from a switch to the Unity 5 game engine, with improved textures, character models and lighting. Thousands of lines of new voice-over have been recorded.

Meanwhile, new Perks & Quirks have been added, as well as the new Precision Strike system, which lets players target individual body parts on enemies to inflict debilitating effects.

InXile also promised overhauled game balance, item drops and reworked combat encounters.

"We wanted to re-affirm our gratitude to our backers and our dedication to RPG fans, as we have been most fortunate to return to our roots," said inXile boss Brian Fargo.

"We plan to continue our proud tradition with Bard's Tale 4, which we'll crowdfund later this year."

Wasteland 2 Game of the Year Edition is also coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

We had a chat with Fargo for a wide-ranging feature on Wasteland 2 and what's next for inXile. Screenshots of Wasteland 2 Game of the Year Edition are below.
