In addition, Wasteland 2 for Xbox One and PS4 has new voice-overs ("tens of thousands" of new lines), while weapon sounds have also been updated.

In terms of gameplay, console players may be happy to learn that UI and controls have been overhauled to support controllers. In addition, inXile has added new "Precision Strike" and "Perk & Traits" systems, while console players can also look forward to tweaks to combat and balancing.
PC players aren't being left in the cold, however, as these updates are included with the free Wasteland 2 Game of the Year Edition upgrade.
If you're attending Gamescom next week, you'll be able to play Wasteland 2 for Xbox One and PS4 at Deep Silver's booth on the show floor.
Wasteland 2, a sequel to a 26-year-old game, was originally funded on Kickstarter, where it raised nearly $3 million. It wasn't inXile's only Kickstarter su, as the developer also raised funds for Torment: Tides of Numenera and The Bard's Tale IV on the crowdfunding site.
