Wasteland 2 backers hanging out for access to the beta — which is expected some time in December — may be interested to know that inXile expect it to clock in at roughly 6-10 hours of gameplay.
“We are going to give away a part of the Arizona area for players to explore,” said creator Brian Fargo to Rock, Paper, Shotgun. “I’d rather not spoil which areas they are but I expect a good 6-10 hours of gameplay for a non speed run approach.”
“There is a lot to do, and it is a virtual impossibility to see some major events in a single play through, as some are mutually exclusive. In addition, you are likely to miss some nice moments as we don’t guide you strictly on what you do. Of course this sets its up for some nice re-playability.”
Fargo went on to explain that they will “increase the size of the beta as time goes by”.
“We will continually update Wasteland 2 with new areas, skills and options and players will get to experience seeing the current levels get an added boost of reactivity and choice based on the feedback and observations of play,” he said. “We will have a relatively short roll out to our beta backers so we can get it into the people’s hands who paid early for it.”
