Thread: Wasteland 2

Wasteland 2 is an upcoming post-apocalyptic role-playing video game under development by inXile Entertainment for Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. It is the first official sequel to the 1988 video game Wasteland (though both Fountain of Dreams and the original Fallout were considered spiritual successors). The game was successfully crowd funded through Kickstarter, part of a trend of high-profile developers launching projects on the site. After the postponement of the original release date, it is currently expected to be released sometime in 2014.
The game is set in an alternate history timeline, in which a nuclear holocaust took place in 1998 in relation to an impact event involving a cluster of meteors that sparked a global nuclear war. On the day of the cataclysm, a company of U.S. Army Engineers were in the desolate southwestern desert constructing bridges in an area with a number of small survivalist communities and a newly constructed federal death row prison with light industrial facilities. The soldiers sought shelter in the prison, expelled the inmates and invited nearby survivalists to join them shortly thereafter. Years later, together they formed "the Desert Rangers, in the great tradition of the Texas and Arizona Rangers", to help other survivors in the desert and beyond it
On December 13, 2013, Wasteland 2 became available as an early access beta on the Steam store.

Wasteland was actually the inspiration behind the fallout series if you didn't know. You can tell just by their similarities (alternative future, nuclear holocaust, role playing game, ect.). I had no idea a new one was coming out.
Any idea if this will eventually be on consoles?
