Overview System Requirements Reviews


Originally released in 1988, Wasteland brought the post-apocalypse to video games and inspired a genre. Play one of history’s defining RPGs with completely overhauled graphics, sound, and expanded musical score. The year is 2087, nearly a century after an all-out nuclear war turned vast swaths of the Earth into a radioactive hellscape. You are a Desert Ranger, a band of stalwart lawmen who are the only hope left in what was once the American southwest, and good people’s last defense against hunger, sickness, ravaging raiders, and mutants. Now something more secretive and sinister is menacing humanity, and it's your job to investigate. Recruit help and follow leads—the choices you make will shape the world around you. Choose wisely, your life and the lives of those you’re sworn to protect depend on it.


What's new in this version

Improvements: * Equipped items are now highlighted in the store. * Scaled up the user stats/combat window to improve overall text size for that UI. * Joypad now selects the previous item on a page when the current one is deleted. * Fix for when the roster would not update; if you tried to create a 5th player character in Ranger Center, it would result in causing the roster to not reflect any damage taken or equipment changed, until you loaded a save game. * Fix for bug in Luck, Dexterity, Strength and Agility that was affecting the result of combat in Hand-to-Hand and Ranged combat modes. * Fix for bug in Unjam code that would auto-unjam a weapon in certain circumstances. * Fix for issues with the item list display, not appropriately displaying the 4th page of items (and a few other issues). * Fix for double-movement when using controller. We now have two repeat delays, the first is longer and used only for the first press, the second the same as in previous builds, for the 2nd (and further) repeat. This allows finer control of single click movement (eg when using a climb skill on the rocks in Highpool caves), but still the smooth movement when holding the direction down. * Added support for ending the player character creation in the Ranger Center, without spending all your skill points. * Fixed several crashes.
