After 25 years, it’s finally here. The sequel to 1988’s cult favourite RPG, Wasteland 2, is finally available on Steam, and it’s taken its rightful spot at the top of the charts.
We caught up with Chris Avellone from Obsidian when he was in Australia recently for AVCon, and – among other things – asked him all about Wasteland 2. Why don’t you go grab a copy of the game, and while it’s downloading, check out Chris Avellone on Player Attack, to find out what you’re in for!
#1 – Wasteland 2
Wasteland 2 is the direct sequel to 1988’s Wasteland, the first-ever post-apocalyptic computer RPG and the inspiration behind the Fallout series. Until Wasteland, no other CRPG had ever allowed players to control and command individual party members for tactical purposes or given them the chance to make moral choices that would directly affect the world around them. Wasteland was a pioneer in multi-path problem solving, dripping in choice and consequence and eschewing the typical one-key-per-lock puzzle solving methods of its peers, in favor of putting the power into players’ hands to advance based on their own particular play style.
