Wasteland getting re-release on GOG.com and Steam

Wasteland 2 Gameplay

By on August 12, 2013 at 1:58 pm

Wasteland 2 stormed through Kickstarter, but unlike other preposterously successful Kickstarter projects, its success wasn’t really based on its predecessor, which released way back in 1988. Instead it was largely because of the people working on it, like Brian Fargo, Chris Avellone, Michael A. Stackpole and Mark Morgan – and the bevy of concepts and passion on display.

We will soon get a chance to play the original Wasteland however, as a recent Kickstarter Update by InXile (courtesy of Blue’s News) explains that while originally the team had planned to make Wasteland available for free to all backers through Wasteland 2, they have struck up a new deal with EA (who published Wasteland originally) to allow them to re-release the game separately.

The new release of the game will be updated to work on modern machines and InXile plan on selling it through GOG.com and Steam. Backers will still get Wasteland for free of course, but now those mad few who really want Wasteland but aren’t sure about Wasteland 2 can get the game as well. And if you missed the Kickstarter campaign last year you can still get backer access via the official store – which would get you both games for $25.
