Watch the first gameplay footage of Wasteland 2


7:00 PM on 02.09.2013



Interested in seeing what Brian Fargo's team at inXile has been doing with the gobs of money thrown at them by backers of its Wasteland 2 Kickstarter funding campaign? Then you'll enjoy this video which features a full fifteen minutes of gameplay footage with narration from producer Chris Keenan explaining all the elements. 

It's a bit ugly still, but there's plenty of time for the cosmetic stuff (and, really, the post-apocalypse should be ugly). The mechanics and implementation are what's impressive here, and we're given peeks into the structure of the dialogue system, application of skills, character movement, combat, and a lot more. The full video runs over 17 minutes, with a couple minutes of voice-acted radio snippets to help introduce things followed by nothing but pure gameplay.

I was never sold on Wasteland 2, though I was thrilled to see that the funding was a success and that the game would see production. Despite being a big fan of the spiritually successive Fallout, the way in which the Kickstarter drive presented the project gave me concerns over whether or not I would still enjoy a game produced today with that design approach. I'm still not all the way there, but this helps a lot and I'll be very curious to see what people think of the game when it releases later this year.
