After acquiring InExile Entertainment last year, Microsoft confirmed during its X019 livestream that the studio's upcoming RPG, Wasteland 3, will launch on May 19 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Before wrapping up the livestream, InExile boss Brian Fargo announced the game's release date alongside a brand-new trailer that was incredibly chilling. The "1987" trailer, below, shows survivors battling computerized enemies in a snow-covered Colorado devasted by bombs.

Fargo, who is expected to retire after Wasteland 3 ships, said the game was designed as a standalone experience. He also confirmed that no previous knowledge of the Wasteland series, nor playing Wasteland or Wasteland 2, is necessary to jump into Wasteland 3.

Wasteland 3 was announced three years ago through crowdfunding site Fig. Since then, the project has surpassed $3 million and made an appearance at E3 2019. We were able to go hands-on with Wasteland 3, where we said the game is "shaping up to be a solid follow-up that maintains the level of choice and agency from its predecessor--while also really seeing the stakes with its increased production quality."
