      So... i never received my physical copy.. and have tried to submit requests via the ZenDesk, but no one has responded.. I'm pretty disappointed as i was very excited to get it..and it's been a few years with no response or anything.

      Hey fans of tactical turn-based RPGS (all of you I"m assuming) please check out VIGILANTES on Kickstarter. It's a crime / gangster themed RPG, there's an alpha demo you can download, and the digitial copy tier is only about $9.

    3. Chris Patterson on

      Nice to see you guys coming back to your roots here to startup Wasteland 3 :)

    4. Faux-Operative Games on

      Hell InXile, I hope you read this comment area. I backed Wasteland 2 all that time ago because I believed in what you were doing... and had a great time playing. I was wondering if you would be interested in helping us do some PR for our upcoming Kickstarter as well. I know it's a longshot, but every bit helps. You can check out our project at and email us at if you're interested.

      @dungeoncrawl - You only lose your trademark if someone can show you abandoned it. You're not required to bully other games or companies. And a trademark does not cover all similiar trademarks.

      Alien Wasteland was not infringing on this trademark in any way. It wasn't confusing consumers.

    6. dungeoncrawl on

      @space monkey - that's how trademarks work. As the article says 'if you don't protect it, you lose it'. So if they let these guys slide then their position is weakened next time. Don't hate the playa, hate the game.

      BTW, you can play computer games on a TV screen. In fact, that's exactly what I'm doing. I don't get why ppl feel the need to buy an Xbone or PS4 when all graphics cards have a HDMI-out.

    8. PegasusOrgans-AGL 589 on

      Will there be further patches?

    9. Space Monkey on

      Hey Inxile, stop bullying indie developers! I just saw this and found it despicable:

      Wasteland is an English word, it doesn't belong to you. If you want to behave like a scummy AAA publishers, so be it but don't expect to ever see my money for crowdfunded projects. This is unbelievable. So disappointed to see that I supported this sort of crap!

      What's the current status of the Chris Avelonne novella and vlog entries? There was 1 (out of 4) vlog entries on the backer site but that has disappeared.

    13. Jaysyn on

      Glad you finally patched the vanishing NPC bug, but it should have never made it to players to start with.

      So, my game keeps crashing.

      If you got the GOG or Steam versions, Wasteland 2 Directors Cut is getting added automatically to your account. There's no need to do anything, it'll just show up on your list of games sometime today (if not there already).

      But if you got one of the console versions:
      "I backed Wasteland 2 on Kickstarter, do I get the console version for free?

      We do not have any special agreements in place with Microsoft or Sony for existing backers and owners, so no, we can't give you a free console version or a discount. But, all the updates coming to the console version will also come to the free PC update, including controller support."

      I assume that's because of the various contracts that are necessary to get published for the consoles.

      The latest update has a FAQ covering this and other questions.

    16. Ryan K on

      Same question as Kevin but for the PS4 version.

    17. Kevin Willock on

      Is there a possibility of backers getting a download code for the xbox one? or a reduced rate for the xbox one version?

      Joshua Fortner on

      I'm curious. I've read that previous owners will be able to acquire the new Director's Cut edition for free. If I own the Steam version, will I get the PS4 version as well? Or do I have to re-purchase the game when it releases for console?

    19. Daniel Alexander Porter on

      @ Chris LeBlanc on January 14, 2015,

      Hey Chris...not sure if you got your copy of WL2 Collector's yet, but I just wanted to let you know that that I have had mine since before the summer this year. I live in Ontario Canada.

    20. R LeRoy Kenyon II on

      Greetings, I'm one of the original backers and have been playing W2 on my laptop. Since beta I've always thought to myself that this game would be cool on my big screen. That's why I pre-ordered W2 for my XBox One. Tomorrow I'll get to see all the glory on the 55" screen.

    21. Valka on

      Seems like the promise for mod tools kit was swept under the rug long ago.

    22. Joe on

      If you are interested in a tactical RPG be sure to check out "The Dwarves" . 23 more days and could use some more support :)

      Thanks for the update in the novella. Is there an expected due date? Can it be expected this year, maybe Christmas, or does it take some more time?

    24. Brian Bagnall on

      I wonder how many here played Wasteland on the c64 or C128? If you are looking for another retro fix, check out this project:

      Received my DRM free disc yesterday. Yay!

    26. inXile entertainment 3-time creator on

      Hey guys,

      For anyone who's reading, we've collaborated with our friends at Kings Wild Project to produce some awesome limited-edition Wasteland themed playing cards. Check out their Kickstarter here!

      William on

      @Travis Shame about the discs, but I suppose the cost of printing discs is still very high. That and the timing probably didn't work out: it'd require more waiting, and not everyone would be cool with that.

      I'm guessing the GOTY will show up two times on GOG: once in an 'upgrade' form, and once in a complete form. We'll probably get GOG codes for the 'upgrade'.

    28. inXile entertainment 3-time creator on

      Hey guys,

      DRM-free discs have been manufactured and are waiting for shipping. No ETA but you'll get emails from us when they go out.

      Chris' employment status with Obsidian does not impact his work on the WL2 novel, he's still working away at that, with our revisions and notes!

    29. Travis on

      @William Looks like there was an email about the DRM Free disc shipping. There wont be a GOTY version offered in the future to DRM Free disc users. What a joke. I can't wait to play through Wasteland 2, be done with it, and never give Inxile the time of day again.

    30. JamieA on

      CE just arrived, the ammo case is real neat

      Just curious if anyone else's manual came with all the images looking really compressed and fuzzy :(

      GvM on

      Chris Avellone novellas are a good point. Especially as he just left Obsidian...
      Nevertheless I think we gave inXile some headaches with our feedback. So they need more time for thinking about their next steps as not everything works as expected. Anyway some more updates by the team would be nice. I'd like to be excited. :-D

      Still waiting for the DRM-free disc. Already beat the GOG release, so if waiting means the GoTY edition will be thrown on the discs as well, fine by me.

      inXile: I'd love to back your Bard's Tale IV project, but until you finish delivering on your promises from this one (from almost 3 years ago) I cannot do so in good conscience. Prove to us that you can follow through.

      As others have asked, what is the status of the Chris Avellone novella and the remaining 3 video production log episodes?

    36. Travis on

      Here I am still waiting for my DRM Free disc. Still haven't played Wasteland 2. Next thing i'll be told is I have to wait for the GOTY edition to be put on the disc. Not what I signed up for.

      Has there been any word on the Chris Avellone novel? I'm very excited for any news.

    38. Guy C on

      Wondering if the upgrade to Unity 5 will mean that savegames will not work between the older and newer version. Anyone know this? I want to start again, but wondering if I should hold off and wait for the GOTY version now.

      THANK YOU! The PS4 trailer gave me chills! Very excited about the GOTY edition. And did I say thank you? :-)

      @Jason Girard. Excellent question. I'm in the same boat. Could you please let me know if you get an answer?

      Jason Girard on

      Just curious, I bought that the tier that gave me both the emailed steam key at release, and a kickstarter boxed version somewhat more recently. I've long since beaten the game and never opened the box version. Is there a steam key in the box version and is it the 'same' key as the one I received through email? Could I give the box version to a family member and they'd be able to play?

    43. Esper on

      My CE arrived today! Sooo sweet :D

    44. Asa on

      Is Chris Avellone still planning on writing a novella in the Wasteland 2 universe? I'm curious what the status on that was. (As for the developer video blog, I only ever saw 1 episode in the ranger citadel) It would be great to get an update on these items in the next kickstarter update.

      I hope the news of a console release means that the PC version will benefit from having the option to use a controller.

    49. Timothy Lose on

      I'm also wondering about backers and the PS4 version. I would be completely happy being able to buy a discounted code if that's possible.

      EXCITED this is now coming to PS4! Any chance of backers getting a PS4 code? (or discount?) Wife really wants to play this on console!
