Sono bastati 3 giorni ai ragazzi di InXile per raggiungere sulla piattaforma di crowfundig Fig i 2.750.000$ richeisti per dare il via ai lavori su Wasteland 3. Ovviamente, questo non implica la fine della campagna: ci sono ancora oltre 24 giorni per accumulare altre pecunia e sbloccare così i vari Stretch Goals, attualmente programmati fino a 3.1 Milioni di $ ma che non fatichiamo ad immaginare si espandano presto. Contemporaneamente, il team accoglie una campagna "social" che mira a sbloccare nuovi contenuti attraverso i "like" e le condivisioni sulle varie plattaforme, tra cui Facebook e Twitter.
Ambientato in una versione da "inverno post-nucleare" del Colorado, Wasteland 3 è in preparazione per PC, Linux, Mac, PS4 e Xbox One; al momento non è stata annunciata un'ipotetica data di release. Per ulteriori dettagli vi rimandiamo al comunicato stampa in calce:
Newport Beach, CA – October 10, 2016 – inXile Entertainment has announced that Wasteland 3, the sequel to 2014’s Wasteland 2, has successfully funded its Fig (www.Fig.co) campaign launched on October 5, 2016, passing the goal of 2.75M USD. There is still time for fans to back Wasteland 3 as the campaign is not due to end until November 3, 2016.
"Wasteland 3 represents the most ambitious title that we have crowdfunded so far," said Brian Fargo, CEO of inXile Entertainment. "We wouldn't be here without our fans and backers carrying the torch and we want to continue to repay them by making the best role-playing games possible. With Wasteland 3 we aim to over-deliver like never before."
In Wasteland 3, inXile builds upon its award-winning franchise, beginning shortly after the end of Wasteland, with the player starting the game as the sole survivor of Team November, a Ranger squad dispatched to the icy Colorado wastes. Colorado is a land of buried secrets, lost technology, fearsome lunatics, and deadly factions, most of which have never heard of the Desert Rangers.
