Wasteland 3 now available on Linux from inXile Entertainment

By - | Views: 36,093

inXile Entertainment have today officially released Wasteland 3 for Linux (and macOS), following on from their successful Fig campaign in 2016 and Windows release in August 2020.

Following on from the events in Wasteland 2 from 2014 (you don't need to play it), Wasteland 3 is a modern squad-based RPG with challenging tactical turn-based combat. This time it has a deep and reactive story full of twists, turns, and brutal ethical decisions. You get to create and customize a squad of up to six Rangers, plus you get a powerful customizable truck too which you can equip with some fun weapons.

From the brief release announcement, "We greatly appreciate your patience as we worked to bring the game to these OS’, and we’re happy to have it playable for you before the end of the year. We hope you enjoy exploring post-apocalyptic Colorado during your holiday break.".

Currently, the co-op ability for both Linux and macOS is limited. For Linux there is no co-op on GOG at all as they depended on GOG Galaxy which GOG have still not ported to Linux, plus on Steam the co-op is only compatible between Linux and macOS together (Windows is by itself). The "Direct Connect" option is also not available but will be coming in an update in January.

You can buy Wasteland 3 from GOGSteam or the Humble Store.

33% on GoG (and they also have a Deluxe version xD)
Ha, Also Known As; Game + Soundtrack.

The manual is in the extra edition, too (which I find strange, but I'll probably get the game with manual, but discounted).
That is weird. Speaking of weirdness and manuals, on the Atari Vault Vol.2 (I bought it for the VCS, I need to see if Steam has it too) it has Star Raiders for the 5200. But as it uses the keypad fairly extensively, it has a weird method of shirtcuts for the gamepad. Yet when you look at the manual, it is just a scan of the 5200 manual... I suppose I should just play it on the 5200 :p

Ye, that is weird. Wondered as well and also skipped on the Deluxe and got the "default". Just saying :) Some like the additional fluff. I've no time for this and hardly ever look at any. Must be at least a The Witcher artbook to get my attention ;-)
