inXile Entertainment announce Wasteland 3 is delayed until August 28

By - | Views: 11,417

Wasteland 3 was originally set for May 19 and now that some platforms have access to a Beta, inXile Entertainment have said they're now going for an August 28 launch.

The main reason being of course the current Coronavirus situation, they said in an announcement on their official site that they're working from home like a lot of other companies which has impacted their work. However, they make it clear they're in a good position with Microsoft and Deep Silver supporting them well and they wish to ensure "a stellar product on day one".

A few platforms have access to the Beta and inXile say it has so far been "well received", so during this extra time they will go over all the feedback and continue "optimization, polishing and refinements, and making sure we have an awesome co-op experience".

Features expected at release:

  • A party-based roleplaying game, with a renewed focus on our trademark complex story reactivity and strategic combat.
  • Adding a player vehicle, environmental dangers, and a revamped, more fluid action system, we are evolving on Wasteland 2's tactical turn-based combat and unique encounter design.
  • Play solo or co-op with a friend in a story-driven experience where your choices will open up (or close off) mission opportunities, areas to explore, story arcs, and more.
  • Your Ranger Base is a core part of the experience. As you help the local people and establish a reputation in Colorado, quests and narrative will force you to make decisions on how to lead.
  • Set in the savage lands of frozen Colorado, where survival is difficult and a happy outcome is never guaranteed. Players will face difficult moral choices and make sacrifices that will change the game world.
  • Wasteland 3 will feature a deep and engaging story utilizing a new dialog system, with all of it fully voiced.

Linux support is of course still confirmed for it as it was a platform advertised during the original Fig campaign. They re-confirmed this again later, and most recently to us on Twitter when querying the Wasteland Remaster which sadly is not on Linux but at least Wasteland 3 will be at release.

You can pre-order for £54.99/$59.99/€59.99, wishlist/follow or whatever else on GOG and Steam.

KimyrielleI'd still rather work from my decently large home and not commute at all.

I guess you need all that extra space when you're not moving at all. 🐽

It's called a park. We have those! And I am pretty sure most people there move more than you guys do in your offices!

Some really strange comments on this thread. Eike says that it's helpful to look someone in the eyes - it is. There are whole aspects of a typical enterprise that work better face to face. Every board or committee meeting, for example. Soft skill training. Mentoring.

Then there's the TheSheeep deriding all the social aspects that make working in a big company fun.

QuoteThen again, I worked in an office for two years before I couldn't bear the endless useless discussions, meetings, boring banter, small talk, uninteresting life stories, etc

Those are some of the things I miss. Just being able to say, and listen to how someone's weekend went. I'm over 20 years at the same company and the only reason I stayed is being able to talk to, learn from and mentor some of the most incredible people I've ever met.

Final point is weird too - "just scale up to 20K". I am a network guy, but I'm also a cyber security guy, and "just" scaling up your company from 1000 home workers to 20000 home workers is an absolute shit-fest. You don't magic internet capacity out of thin-air. Roads have to dug for new lines to be put in, unless you're lucky enough that your provider over-spec'd when (two decades ago) they put the line in. If it does need a road dig, you'll be lucky to get one within 90 (working) days. In these conditions, I imgaine most ISPs would just laugh at you.


Similarly, servers don't just appear. They have to be ordered, configured, and then usually some kind of load balancing configured. Licenses need to be bought.

Finally, the cyber security elements. Do you allow your staff to print from home? Does your DLP affected? How secure are your VPNs? How will you patch 20K+ devices over that VPN? Is the VPN split-tunnel...? It better be, or your ISP links will fry on the first day.

So, yeah, it can be done. Now how many big companies will have been able to actually do it within a fortnight of COVID-19 breaking out? This stuff isn't easy.

My Roommate works for the Canadian government and her current projects are all about this shit, and it's been a huge challenge. All the stuff you mentioned, plus government-specific privacy concerns, scaling while not breaking rulesets on existing switches, dealing with bandwidth overhead that was already trouble when everyone was in the office and is now getting maxed out all the time, etc. One department was only allowing half an hour VPN per day to employees who weren't doing mission-critical work. I can only imagine what mid-sized businesses are going through right now to deal with this stuff.
