Wasteland 3 Successfully Reaches Funding Goal on Fig in Three Days; Expands with Stretch Goals

After the success of the long-anticipated Wasteland 2, the upcoming Wasteland 3 will bring players back into the post-apocalypse with several new features, with the game having now been officially crowdfunded. Originally announced two weeks ago, developer InXile Entertainment announced that Wasteland 3 has met its crowdfunding goal on the platform of $2.75 million, just three days after the game’s crowdfunding campaign was launched on Fig. While a majority of the $2.75 million was contributed by investors, over 14,000 backers contributed toward the game’s funding goal, which currently sits at $2,823,321 (as of this writing), with over 24 days still left in the campaign to contribute towards the game. Following the game’s funding on Fig, InXile has unveiled several stretch goals for the project, upwards of $3.1 million beyond the original funding goal and including new content such as new customization options for characters, vehicles, gear, and more. Wasteland 3 is currently in development for PS4, Xbox One, and PC for late 2019 – you can learn more and contribute to the game’s funding at its Fig campaign page.

The developer has now revealed three stretch goals, which are as follows: $2.85M: 37 Pieces of Flair – We unlock further Ranger customization, which could include multiple body types, more heads, and more hairstyles. Plus we’ll show items that your Ranger has equipped (gear like shovels, binoculars, etc) on their models. $3M: Car Companion (Codename: Morningstar) – We add a talking car companion! Morningstar is an AI built to serve President Reagan, but he’ll help you both in your travels and during combat, plus he’ll give you well-timed advice on how to wipe out all the dirty commies out there.

We want to put as much of our money raised into the game as we can, but we also want to give you the opportunity to get a console copy cheaper than you otherwise could. We decided to add that console copies as an add-on for a wholesale price. Add it, and you will get both PC (Windows, Mac, and Linux), plus a console copy (Xbox One or PS4) – not to mention whatever other rewards you are due!
