Wasteland Remastered takes the game that first released in 1988 and gives it a new coat of paint, as well as bringing it to new platforms. For newcomers who are interested in the upcoming Wasteland 3, this is the perfect way to check out the world of Wasteland.
Wasteland 3 is set to release on May 19 and takes the Rangers into the icy post-apocalypse of Colorado. There's new mechanics to play around with, including a powerful armored vehicle that can turn the tide in major battles. InXile was acquired by Microsoft in November 2018, which allowed the studio to delay Wasteland 3 and focus on polishing it while expanding the team.
Survive the apocalypse
The classic rises from the nuclear ashes! Wasteland Remastered is an overhaul of the 1988 title that brought the post-apocalypse to video games.

Wow. This was unexpected for me. Hopefully they do the 2nd as well.
Doubtful, the second game was released this generation.
