Wasteland 2 gets five screens, opening movie premiere date

Wasteland 2 - 02

Wasteland 2‘s opening movie will be premiering tomorrow, and in celebration, five (unrelated) screenshots have been released.

The screenshots show off a mock conversation interface, the final conversation interface, a bit of combat, a post-combat wandering shot, and a rather tasty 4K resolution screen.

This is all in honour of the game’s cinematic opening movie, which will be premiering at the MCM London Comic Con tomorrow. If you want to watch that reveal live then you can do so on Twitch – it’ll be taking place at 4PM BST/8AM PST.

Wasteland 2 is inXile’s crowdfunded sequel to 1988 CRPG Wasteland, which in many ways was the precursor to Fallout. You take control of a squad of Rangers wandering post-apocalyptic America in an attempt to assist the last remnants of humanity against all the threats that they face.

    Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.

      Uh, those screenshots aren’t new, and there was definitely no Comic Con yesterday.
