The Wasteland 2 Director's Cut will drop this October 13 as a free update for PC owners of the core game, developer InXile Entertainment has announced.
The remastered version of last year's enjoyable post-apocalyptic romp shifts the game engine over to Unity 5, adds a suit of bizarre perks with which to further customise your band of Rangers, and makes a few key tweaks to the combat system.
These last few weeks before the update is released will be used to polish, tweak and optimise. I enjoyed the original version of Wasteland 2, for the most part, and this upgrade will probably convince me to head back to the wasteland for another go. One of the game's main problems was that characters never felt that different from each other, and the game's new perk system – which contains some appropriately odd options – should go some way towards fixing that.
Here's InXile themselves with a handy guide to what you can expect:[br]
Quirks, a new set of gameplay-modifying personality traits and characteristics for your squad.
Perks, new bonuses you will be able to pick for your characters as they level up.
Precision Strikes, a combat technique allowing you to you target enemy body parts to inflict debilitating effects and injuries.
Upgraded to Unity 5, featuring redone environments, lighting, and character models. [/br]
