A mood piece short film for the game has been released to celebrate.
Though rife with issues at launch (which patches have helped resolve), InXile Entertainment’s Wasteland 3 stands out as an excellent tactical turn-based RPG. The developer has since announced on Twitter that the title reached one million players. It also shared a live-action short film it shot several years ago as a mood piece for life in post-apocalyptic Colorado.
While that figure is certainly impressive, it doesn’t necessarily reflect sales figures since Wasteland 3 was available at launch on Xbox Game Pass for console and PC. It would be interesting to learn more about the revenue generated, especially when Wasteland 2 managed to earn $1.5 million in just four days of release. Time, as always, will tell.
Wasteland 3 is currently available for Xbox One, PS4 and PC. It tells the story of November Squad, whose survivors journey to Colorado Springs to assist the Patriarch in return for aid. Along the way, players will encounter various factions and make decisions that influence the overall world and story direction. You can check out our official review here for more information.
We’re excited to announce that Wasteland 3 has reached 1 million players!
As a thank you, we’re releasing a short film we shot a few years ago as a mood piece to help us set the look and feel of what a post-apocalyptic Colorado could be like. We hope you enjoy it. pic.twitter.com/ICsWAVdMiu
