Wasteland 2 first screenshot teases roboscorpion

Three months after the Kickstarter campaign for Wasteland 2 ended with $3.04 million, developer inXile has released the very first screenshot. It's still very much work-in-progress, but gives an idea of the wacky and wonderful scenarios we can expect from the post-apocalyptic RPG: a group of badass desperadoes facing down a roboscorpion. "Please keep in mind that we have not put in the particle effects and post-processing which will have a dramatic effect on the scene, and this represents just one of the various environments for Wasteland 2 so expect to see other quite different locales," inXile head honcho Brian Fargo said. "Also, this particular camera angle is on the low end of a range that the player can adjust upwards to a much more top-down view, for those who prefer that style during game play." So expect it to look fancier, then. But why release an early WIP shot, when video games are usually so guarded about showing anything--shock! horror!--not super-polished? Fargo explains, "Releasing a screen shot this early in the process is a new concept for me as we typically want to hone in every element before we show it. But based on the requests and our desire for fan input, we are doing so to solicit feedback on the basic look." Wasteland 2 is coming to PC, Mac and Linux, complete with the original Wasteland too.
