Wasteland 30th Anniversary Bundle Announced

A Steam announcement from inXile Entertainment announces Wasteland 30th Anniversary Bundle, a celebration of three decades in the wasteland, saying this is currently in preproduction for release next year. The centerpiece of this bundle is a remastered version of the original Wasteland with new graphics they say will maintain the spirit of the pixel art that was state-of-the-art when the game was first released by EA and Interplay in 1988. You can purchase this right now, and receive the remastered Wasteland when it's released. Here's word on the contents:
inXile Entertainment is proud to announce the Wasteland 30th Anniversary Bundle, a celebration of the video game series which launched the post-apocalyptic genre in video gaming and inspired successors such as the Fallout series. The bundle includes items from across the history of the series, along with two new items - a musical track by Mark Morgan, which represents the first publicly available new content from 2019’s Wasteland 3, and a currently in pre-production 30th anniversary remaster of the original Wasteland by Krome Studios (currently partnered with inXile on a similar remaster of The Bard’s Tale Trilogy).

Items in the Wasteland 30th Anniversary Edition Bundle include:

  • Wasteland 1 - The Original Classic
  • Wasteland - 30th Anniversary Edition remaster (due early 2019)
  • Wasteland 2: Director's Cut
  • Digital Extras:
    - Wasteland 3 Music Track "Frozen Waste"
    - Wasteland 2 Novella: All Bad Things
    - Wasteland 2 Novella: The Earth Transformed Ghost Book One
    - Wasteland 2 Novella: Death Machines Ghost Book Two
    - Wasteland 2 Concept Art Book
    - Wasteland 2 Choir Songs EP
    - Wasteland 2 Original Soundtrack

This bundle will contain all the items listed above and be sold for $44.99, launching at 10% discount in celebration of the game’s anniversary. When Wasteland - 30th Anniversary Edition is released, it will also be added to the libraries of customers who purchased the bundle at no additional cost.

The signature item of this bundle is Wasteland - 30th Anniversary Edition, a remastering of the first game that will feature updated graphics (which maintain the spirit of the original pixel art), run natively in current operating systems and at all current resolutions, and offer other quality of life features. This work is being done by Krome Studios, the team currently behind a similar remastering of The Bard’s Tale Trilogy.

The Wasteland - 30th Anniversary Edition remaster is currently in pre-production, with an expected completion date of early 2019. Anyone who purchases the bundle prior to then will receive the game at no additional cost upon release.

It's not just you. I've started the game several times, and can never get very far. And I was a $100 kickstarter backer! I really want to like it. I LOVE that it was made in Unity for cross-platform support.

For me, it's just so brutally-and-randomly difficult. The last time I tried, my very first random encounter into the wasteland wiped the party without even a hope. Some people like that kind of thing; I don't.

@#$%. I'm old.

And yes...starting over with the same guys, over and over, until they were Ranger Immortals was pretty awesome.

I kind of bounced off WL2 about halfway through...which is sad, considering the impact the first one had on me. Not sure if that's really WL2's fault or mine, but still...

The original Wasteland was huge for me, got me started on CRPGs. The PC floppy version I had would let you start again with the same characters after finishing the game, keeping their rank and stats but resetting the world. I played through literally dozens of times with those guys. They were gods of the wasteland. Looking forward to seeing the remaster.
