Wasteland 2 RPG Is Officially Deep Into Linux Testing

Wasteland 2 the post-apocalyptic RPG has so far been absent from Linux gamers shelves, that will end soon.

Thomas Beekers, inXile line producerHello Liam,

The Linux version of the Wasteland 2 beta is deep into testing, with results looking good so far. We are hopeful it can be made live when the next Wasteland 2 beta update goes out, but this is not a certainty at this stage. If it does not go live with the upcoming build, it will almost certainly go live along with the update after that one.


Wasteland 2 is the direct sequel to 1988’s Wasteland, the first-ever post-apocalyptic computer RPG and the inspiration behind the Fallout series. Until Wasteland, no other CRPG had ever allowed players to control and command individual party members for tactical purposes or given them the chance to make moral choices that would directly affect the world around them. Wasteland was a pioneer in multi-path problem solving, dripping in choice and consequence and eschewing the typical one-key-per-lock puzzle solving methods of its peers, in favor of putting the power into players’ hands to advance based on their own particular play style.

The game was crowdfunded in April of 2012, so it's great to see them finally bring it over to our platform as promised.

As we always suggest, if you haven't picked it up yet then wait until the Linux version hits to prevent getting burned. Article taken from

I funded it on Kickstarter about a year ago, and have been waiting. I am patient, and think and hope that Wasteland 2, when it arrives, will be as professional a game as can be imagined.

Beside, there's also Torment, and Pillars of Eternity, and...

/Puts on old man hat/ I bought the original Wasteland when I was a kid, it was fantastic, there was nothing and I mean nothing like it at the time. It makes me happy that this is being designed to be Wasteland 2 and not Fallout 4.
