An apocalyptic landscape is inXile Entertainment's forte, and they're still working on Wasteland 2 with ambitious plans. The team continues looking at balancing issues, but they've got big things in mind.

Wasteland 2 is migrating to the new Unity 5 codebase, which means things previously tied to Unity 4.x Pro will be opened up freely to modders under the new engine. The game is also "getting a facelift."

There's a pretty hefty new update out for Wasteland 2. Summarising every aspect of it would take me three or four years, but one key change to note is a large amount of memory optimisations which should improve performance on lower-spec machines.

InXile has also added a faster travel option for the world map. Now they add it. After I've spent forty hours or so trudging about the desert at roughly the same speed as a sloth with a sprained ankle, they add it now.

Brian Fargo and inXile Entertainment are patching Wasteland 2 for the first time since officially releasing. There are still a number of bugs and glitches to work through, including the combat stats.

To a great cheer among Rangers, Fargo reveals they've "backed off on gun jamming" percentages, which are happening much too frequently given the numbers.
