Releasing September 19 & Shipping Info Deadlines
It took a while to get every moving part settled down whether it was physical boxes or waiting on ratings from different agencies, but now we're finally ready to name a solid, final release date: Wasteland 2 will be coming your way September 19th!
We won't be sitting on our hands until that date. While the disc gold master is done and set, it's all hands on deck for the day 1 version and we're working hard to ensure that is the best version of the game possible. Bug-hunting and balance passes are our major focus in the month leading up to release.
With the ship date closing in it is now vital to ensure your reward and shipping info are up to date on your Ranger Center account. Log in (or activate your account here). Check under the Rewards tab and verify your reward choice (it is possible no reward choice has been input so please check this), we will lock reward choices on Monday 25th of August.
If you're receiving physical goods, check your address listing and click the confirm button to lock and confirm your address with us. The deadline for updating your shipping info is one week from now: Wednesday 27th of August. If you do not have any info listed or need to make changes after that date we will not be able to ship the game to you in the first batch. Please check your Ranger Center info as soon as possible, if you have any more questions don't hesitate to contact us there.
Late Backer Store Closing
As part of our locking up for shipping, we will be closing the late backer store next week on Monday. Last chance to back this game and grab this style of big box!
First and foremost our congratulations to our brothers and sisters at Obsidian on the successful launch of their Pillars of Eternity backer beta. It's been great to see people happy about another Kickstarter's course and we've certainly been enjoying playing it here!
Speaking of fellow Kickstarters we wanted to give a shoutout to Hard West, an interesting wild west turn-based squad tactical combat game reminiscent of X-Com. It's looking great, with two weeks more to go on their Kickstarter, so give them a look!
