Wasteland 2 - walkthrough and game guide

Our guide to inXile's sprawling tactical RPG.

Following a successful round of crowdfunding back in 2012, designer Brian Fargo and friends set to work creating a sequel to 1988's cult tactical RPG Wasteland. The result, released in its final form today, should more than satisfy misty-eyed fans of the franchise with its 50-plus hours' worth of content.

Should you come unstuck while wandering this rather large post-apocalyptic landscape, we're putting together a complete walkthrough for the game, from the main storyline, to the side quests sprinkled throughout the world.
