Wasteland 2 Beta Is Less Than Three Weeks Away (Hopefully)

Wasteland 2 Beta Is Less Than Three Weeks Away (Hopefully)

InXile Entertainment boss Brian Fargo says the Wasteland 2 beta should in the hands of Kickstarter backers in less than three weeks.

Work on Wasteland 2 seems to be proceeding apace, as the Kickstarter backer-exclusive beta is just a couple weeks away. "We feel confident of it's release within 2.5 weeks as we nail down blocker bugs and dial up messaging to make things clear. I'm really looking forward to the feedback of our beta backers," Fargo wrote on inXile's Wasteland 2 forum. "Thanks for all your patience."

InXile also released a new Wasteland 2 screen showing the interior of the central complex, "which is heavy on atmosphere and flows much differently than the outside locale." There's a real Fallout vibe to it, which isn't entirely unexpected given the connection between the two series: Interplay created Fallout as a "spiritual successor" when it couldn't get the rights to Wasteland.

The looming beta could be seen as suggesting that a full launch isn't too far down the road, but Fargo said on Twitter that's not necessarily the case. "We won't set a full release date until we work through the beta without backers," he wrote. "Ultimately we are making this game together."

What about Shadowrun Returns and Planetary Annihilation?

Also FTL: Faster Than Light, Kentucky Route Zero, "Zombies, Run!", Organ Trail, Castle Story,Gianna Sisters: Twisted Dreams, Sir You Are Being Hunted , and Contagion were games that were kickstarted and have already been released or are in early access, albeit for much smaller budgets.

OT: Cool that the beta is finally coming out. I'm getting Wasteland 2's final release as part of my reward for pledging to Project Eternity, since I didn't back this project when it was first kickstarted. Looking forward to trying it out!

that doesn't sound right ;) should probably be with backers.

Methinks the formatting is broken in OP, Mr Chalk. The embedded tweet appears to have been pushed off to the side of the screen.

Edit: ignore me, page refreshed and looks ok now. Well I look like an idiot again and now need to come up with something else to say. Go Pats!

Edit 2: or not, looks gubbed again. No idea what I did the first time to make it display properly. Imma gon go now.

it because of chrome.

they said they were going to fix it.
the escapist staff said that they would start to embed twitter images at the end of the article to avoid this until its fixed.
