inXile’s first Kickstarter-funded project, Wasteland 2, has entered beta. The post-apocalyptic role-playing game, sequel to 1988’s pioneering Wasteland, is now playable for campaign backers and will enter Steam Early Access tomorrow for everyone else. The sequel is set 15 years after the original with players taking control of a party of Desert Rangers who are out to protect the wastes. The beta includes four major areas, along with their side areas, plus the character-creation system, world map travel, and random encounters. Additional areas set to be added as development continues.
Wasteland 2 is currently in development for PC.
