Looking really good! Sounds and looks a fair bit more like the modern Fallout titles than the previous Wasteland 2. The latest developer diary they posted at the start of June, which we missed, was also full of good info. The player choice and game reactivity systems sound like they could make multiple runs quite interesting.

It will have Linux support at release, although it's likely the last title from inXile Entertainment that we will see officially on Linux since they're now owned by Microsoft. Wasteland 3 itself for Linux and other platforms was crowdfunded on Fig back in Nov, 2016, where they managed to pull in over three million towards development.

You can pre-order for £54.99/$59.99/€59.99, wishlist/follow or whatever else on GOG and Steam for release on August 28.

Definitely the most interesting of the three - looks like a must-buy for sure!

I'm happy about seeing the Wasteland 3 to have Linux support, but I'm sad that this will be probably last inXile game with it. It's another loss for Linux gaming community.

I won't bet, but I'm not sure about this. Microsoft probably doesn't care much about Linux gaming, we're under the radar.

I just saw what happened with the IDSoftware (they always were linux and open source friendly), so I'm a bit wary about this.

Valve ported one of their games to Linux in 2013 and wrote a blog post about how it became faster than windows with so little time optimizing it, and got microsoft knocking on their door, and took directx out of life support.

I won't exactly call us under the radar.

I don't think I'm the only one who thought differently about the chances of native Linux gaming back in 2013...

From the latest update ("Update #43: Wasteland 3 by inXile entertainment"):

QuoteFirst though we have some news for our Mac and Linux players—we’ve made the difficult decision to focus Wasteland 3’s initial release on Windows 10, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. We’re prioritizing the work for Mac and Linux post-launch, and expect it to be complete by the end of the year. This wasn’t an easy decision to make, but ultimately will result in a better overall product for Mac and Linux as well. We’re still a small studio considering the size of the games we like to make, and this allows us to keep our engineers dedicated to the core game systems.

They are offering refunds:

QuoteWe know that for some of you the additional wait will be frustrating, and we want everyone to feel satisfied with their experience, so we’ve taken steps to ensure we can offer refunds beyond the standard Fig and Crowd Ox refund cutoffs. We know Wasteland 3 will absolutely be worth the wait, but we respect your pledge, and we want you to be confident in continuing the journey with us. Contact us through the inXile support site if you’d like to discuss that option. Please be aware that once retail keys are distributed, and/or physical rewards are shipped, we will no longer be able to offer refunds—rewards are expected to be sent in the next few weeks.
