NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. – June 11, 2018 – inXile Entertainment, the studio led by Interplay founder and industry icon Brian Fargo, is proud to announce the Wasteland 30th Anniversary Bundle, a celebration of the video game series which launched the post-apocalyptic genre in video gaming and inspired successors such as the Fallout series.

This bundle will contain all the items listed above and be sold for $44.99, launching at 10% discount in celebration of the game’s anniversary. When Wasteland – 30th Anniversary Edition is released, it will also be added to the libraries of customers who purchased the bundle at no additional cost.
“The original Wasteland is one of the games that I am most proud of and certainly one of the most influential,” said inXile CEO Brian Fargo. “Wasteland 2 helped launch an era of crowdfunding as a viable platform for game development and let us focus on making the kinds of games that we love to make and that our players want. With Wasteland 3, we’re continuing to develop this world we started in 1988 and we’re excited to provide the first taste of what we have in store for players.”
The signature item of this bundle is Wasteland – 30th Anniversary Edition, a remastering of the first game that will feature updated graphics (which maintain the spirit of the original pixel art), run natively in current operating systems and at all current resolutions, and offer other quality of life features. This work is being done by Krome Studios, the team currently behind a similar remastering of The Bard’s Tale Trilogy.
The Wasteland – 30th Anniversary Edition remaster is currently in pre-production, with an expected completion date of early 2019. Anyone who purchases the bundle prior to then will receive the game at no additional cost upon release.
Wasteland was published in 1988, garnering great acclaim including Computer Gaming World’s Adventure Game of the Year. Wasteland 2 was published in 2014, winning plaudits including PC World’s Game of the Year. Wasteland 3 was successfully crowdfunded in 2016 and has a Q4 2019 release date.
