Wasteland 3 now available on Linux from inXile Entertainment

By - | Views: 41,114

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.

Looks very promising, but those prices are a little too steep for me at the moment. I'll wait for some sales to start :-) On my wishlist, though!

If it's reported to be technically fine, I'll buy it.

So we get a broken product again? I mean single player is cool and all but one of the mayor selling points here is Co-op, isn't it? So how about say 50% discount for mac and Linux till we get the full game?
Sorry inXile this is not even aimed specifically at you, but this kind of treatment is getting rather old.
I hope direct connect is the OS agnostic option? Then there would at least be some light in the distance.

Italian translation + Linux support = instabuy on Fanatical which has a sale.

Out of curiosity I tried it under Proton: doesn't work because of the unsupported video codecs.

Quoting: HamishAny word on Linux support for Wasteland Remastered?

I don't think that we will ever see one, the remaster was outsourced to Krome Studios who have zero Linux experience.

Yeah, I think it's the same for the Bard's Tale remastered versions. They work fine through Proton though. Haven't tried Wasteland Remastered.

I'm thinking of getting it via gog, it's 33% discounted and i have the second game from that store as well. I doubt i'd use coop at all anyway.
