What you need to know

During X019 in London a new trailer for Wasteland 3 was revealed alongside a release date. It looks like we'll be playing it shortly before E3 this year, and if you just can't wait for it, you can preorder it on the Microsoft Store right now. Those who preorder will receive in-game items like the Ranger General's Hat and Glasses, Polished Ranger Badge, and Snow Camo Weapons.

Wasteland 3 is a post-apocalyptic RPG from inXile entertainment, featuring challenging tactical combat, hours of exploration, and a deep, reactive story full of twists, turns, and brutal ethical decisions. Play in single-player or co-op as you customize your squad with perks and abilities geared to your playstyle, and customize your vehicle—the Kodiak—turning it into a hardened war beast. Saving Colorado isn't going to be easy, but Arizona is counting on you, so... don't screw it up.

Wasteland 3 is expected to release on May 19, 2020 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. Thanks to Microsoft's aqcuisition of inXile Entertainment, the studio has said that the quality of its upcoming RPG has increased by "leaps and bounds."
