A free Game of the Year Edition is coming to PC owners of Wasteland 2 later this year, and it brings with it new voicework, a number of changes to the post-apocalyptic RPG's visuals, most notably a switch over to the Unity 5 engine, and some neat additions to gameplay.

One notable new feature is a number of new Quirks, talents that let players add a bit more flavour and customisation to their group of travelling badasses. Developer InXile has gone into more detail over on the game's Kickstarter page.

This summer inXile Entertainment will be releasing the Game of the Year Edition for Wasteland 2, and the PC version is being upgraded for free to this superior version. It's got some serious mutations on the way.

Already revealed is an upgrade to Unity 5 and fancy PBR effects to the environments for better lighting, but the studio is also "redoing all" humanoid models. There's also the new 'Quirks and Perks' trait system.

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."

The latest patch for cRPG Wasteland 2 is available and it's another huge list of changes from inXile entertainment. Steam Achievements are now a thing for Mac and Linux.

Don't worry, you're contracted STD in Arizona will now count properly, and there's now a "large rolling gate" in the Prison HQ to stop accidentally breaking quest sequences. Practically everything's been tweaked.

Huge Wasteland 2 update adds faster travel, memory optimisations and more

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.
