Watch Wasteland 2's opening movie
Meet Wasteland 2’s Rangers in this live-action video.
Developer InXile Entertainment has released the opening movie for its post-apocalyptic RPG Wasteland 2.
The opening movie uses archival footage and live-action video. It recaps how the world we know destroyed itself in nuclear war, and introduces the heroic Rangers, who roam the wasteland, protecting innocent survivors from criminals, cultists, and cannibals.
Wasteland 2 is the sequel to the 1988 classic from Interplay Entertainment, which went on to create the original Fallout. The project took to Kickstarter in 2012 hoping to raise $900,000, and eventually hit nearly $3 million in funding. That sum caused its initial release target of October 2013 to get pushed back as the scope of the game was increased.
GameSpot recently reviewed the Early Access version of Wasteland 2, finding that it "spectacularly balances the older style of classic PC RPGs and more modern sensibilities."
The full game is slated for release around “the end of August” 2014, on PC, Mac, and Linux.
