Wasteland 2 Live-action, Cinematic Opening Introduces Us to the Desert Rangers
War never changes, but this cinematic opening reminds us that Wasteland did it first.
According to Polygon, inXile Entertainment has released the live-action cinematic opening for Wasteland 2, its upcoming, post-apocalyptic role-playing game. People may speculate that the Wasteland 2 looks remarkably similar to the first two Fallout titles, especially with its west coast post-apocalyptic setting and its top-down RPG mechanics. But naysayers should be reminded that the first Wasteland was created in 1988 for MS-DOS, Commodore 64 and Apple II, while Fallout first debuted on DOS in late 1997.
This cinematic intro to Wasteland 2 tells the backstory of the Wasteland and how the Desert Rangers survived a nuclear holocaust in order to bring the law to the desolate west. Wasteland 2 will be launching in late August for PC. For those who can’t wait until the end of summer, inXile is offering an early access beta through Steam.
