    Tags: Brian Fargo; inXile Entertainment; Wasteland 3

    Microsoft's much-hyped X019 event in London today ended up giving us little more than a seemingly endless stream of trailers for cartoony multiplayer games. That includes Obsidian's new game, which we're just going to pretend doesn't exist, thank you very much. Yet at the very end it was somewhat redeemed when Brian Fargo was finally allowed on stage, ushered in by Phil Spencer himself to close the show and unveil a new Wasteland 3 trailer. It's a gritty lament for the lost world of 1987, which you can tell because it's got a giant robo-Reagan.


    Even before the trailer went out, Wasteland 3's Steam page was updated to indicate that the game is coming out on May 19th. It's on GOG now too, and on both stores the game is now available for preorder for a steep $60. There are some preorder-exclusive items which I expect will also be given to Fig backers. The only thing left to find out now is when backers are getting their hands on Wasteland 3's Early Access beta. Brian Fargo and Jeremy Kopman will be talking more about the game at X019 tomorrow, so maybe it'll be announced then.

    Well... as he started talking he started with the things that matter, and the game is 55 Gb.

    So far those are the positives.

    Not holding my breath though.

    EDIT: Also, visually, I like the missle throne.

    It generally means plenty of content. I'm struggling to be optimistic.

    The backer alpha played well. Not heavy on the RPG mechanics but it was an action-oriented demo so I wasn't expecting much. Verdict is still out on my end but the combat was really fun.

    Let me guess: you're going to have to solve one of those stupid electrical puzzles to power down the mecha-scorp, right?

    Looking like the most PC "ok boomer" rpg that I've seen in a while by the look of this trailer...55GB of garbage, it is going to be worse than W2, screencap this.

    Slowtard propose Microsoft should buy Asylum Films and Juul vaping company, and force merger between them and inXile.

    Then they have this demographic locked down *tight*

    Looks ok, but there are very few games I would consider being worth full $60, and Wasteland 3 is not one of them. Maybe this is supposed to push even more people towards the Game Pass service.

    EDIT: Not sure what to think about it being treated as the highest-profile (presented last) game of this conference. EIther Microsoft really has nothing better (in the marketing sense) to show, or they are hoping that tactical post-apocalyptic turn-based RPGs will suddenly start selling millions of copies (?).

    So they went from cringe humor to cringe epicness in their trailers trying to sell this pile of shit. Still looks shit, will be shit.

    As if the trailer wasn't atrocious enough, they also butchered the "Land Of Confusion". Nice.

    Hope it sells well!
    Personally not that interested (since they dumb'd down RPG-elements, right?) but interesting that Fargo took the co-op thing to heart. I remember him saying that was one of D:OS' keys to success, when he was still mad WL2 didnt sell too well.

    See how it goes!
    More exciting about the (Unannounced) Jason Anderson/Chad Moore project....

    oh yeah, colony ship and encased I am truly looking forward to much more than this game, but I don't think they will be out by May. Also your post reminded me about Stellar Tactics, which I am also looking forward to...thanks!

    Wasteland 2 had some of the flat out wankest combat I've ever played in a game of this style.

    Big step up needed.

    Colony Ship is like couple of years away isnt it ?
