    I will share thoughts later in the week. I just tried it out to see if I could run it. Impressions to come in a few days.

    Performance really sucks. As soon as I got to Colorado Springs I couldn't get more than 53 fps. Also the difference between max and lowest settings is only ~5 fps. Other areas were 70+ fps but with constant stuttering when moving the camera.

    Is the engine Unity? Because it sounds like good old Unity does it again and you're SOL

    Also I'm lowkey hyped for the best game Brian Fargo has ever made to come out tbh, Wasteland 2 was pretty great by director's cut edition

    The performance issue also existed in "bard's tale 4." To solve this, they switched to the "Director cut" version with cardboard graphics. The original version is still better (personal opinion) They always use the same game codes in the Wasteland series."Unity" and "unreal engine" support these old codes. The only problem is optimization and how much they can adapt it. Now in beta. This problem will be solved in the full version of the game. I don't want to see another "bard's tale 4" problem. (my hope is that way) -)

    Well, there it is:

    "Can you provide a little more info on your systems and OS'?

    Be aware the Beta is offered only on Steam as a Windows 10-supported build."

    Fucking morons hard-locked the beta to win10 only, at least for Steam it seems. Nothing was said about this.

    Fucking DUMB.

    Then you're an anomaly, because the forums are LITTERED with people that has the exact same problem I do, the beta doesnt work past the loading screen.

    Good for you.

    Might wanna tell us if u did soething different, or have different steam settings

    Congrats. You look dumb now, because you couldn't take 1 minute to search and realize that the above pictures were just concept arta from Pyke, and there was never any indication that the game will look like that.

    I did nothing special. I waited on a black screen for a minute or two. After that, I had no issues to run it.

    It does look surprisingly decent.

    Wonder about the random crap loot/itemization/tiers. Was that improved?

    The writing is surprisingly decent, as well. Both in dialogues and (mainly) in the item descriptions.

    The Beta is super-short compared to the Wasteland 2 one, however. W2 Beta was essentially half the game, this one is the first 2-3 hours, max.

    Maybe you should play Ecco the dolphin instead if you're in for retarded gameplay and beautiful screens to stare like a goldfish.
    Or Deadwater if you want to pretend you're into cRPG but have a shit taste.

    I wanted to ask Pyke about his work on Wasteland 3 in our Beautiful Desolation interview, but to my surprise they've still got him under NDA.

    Do you mean you don't use Win 10, but complain that a software which was developed for Win 10 is not working for you? Ohhkaaayyyy...
    Do you also expect them to support Windows XP?
