    InXile has hit us up with a quick Kickstarter status update on Wasteland 2, which includes a summary on the progress done with the beta, the news that the original title is coming to Desura, and a few pictures of.. creepy dolls. Here's a snippet:

    On to other news. We're about a month into our three-month plan that we mentioned in update 44, things have been progressing well. We are simultaneously working to fix issues and bugs with the game in general based on feedback to the beta while other team members are moving ahead in finishing all the LA content. While the next beta update (coming soon) will not be quite as sizeable as the last one it is another significant content expansion (adding a new area) as well as UI upgrade (implementing the new barter screen). Here's what we said on it earlier on our blog:

    The next update to the Wasteland 2 beta will be another sizeable one. We are adding more content in the form of the missile silo map, an interesting location that is set to challenge your problem-solving skills. Here is a short description from Jeremy Kopman, the level designer on Silo. “Slashed across eastern Arizona is a deep, winding canyon that provides the only access to a vast, resource-rich valley. As if traversing the labyrinthine paths – full of vicious animals and sociopathic raiders – wasn’t hard enough, the area is controlled by a fanatical branch of the Servants of the Mushroom Cloud. These monks worship Titan, bringer of death by the Great Glow… and a live ICBM with a nuclear warhead. Too bad braving this deathtrap is your only way to reach your next mission target: Damonta.”​

    For me Fallout-esda 3 does not exist.

    Wastelands 2 is Fallout 3.

    If the only thing that fallout is to you is general mechanics and the post-apocalyptic part of its theme then sure, why not.

    And even in general mechanics I'm not so sure if Wasteland can be compared with Fallout 1.

    I figure he was talking like "spiritual successor."

    no, WL2 is not a spiritual sequel of Fallout.
    it's simply sequel of WL1 :cool:

    Fallout 1 was called the spiritual successor of Wasteland by Brian Fargo, if I'm not mistaken. Hence using the same terminology to a return to form for WL2.

    yeah, he probably meant the post-apocalyptic game i have been waiting for since fallout 2.
