Wasteland 2 Director's Cut shown off in debut trailer, drops GOTY Edition

InXile Entertainment has released a trailer for Wasteland 2 Director's Cut, while at the same time dropping it's Game of the Year Edition tag.


InXile Entertainment has released the first trailer for its upcoming Wasteland 2 Director’s Cut, which was previously called its Game of the Year Edition. Even though the name may have changed a bit, the game is still scheduled to be released on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and become available to all PC owners of the original game as a free update.

The trailer shows off some of the improvements we can expect from the Director’s Cut version of Wasteland 2. Improvements includes updated graphics, a new Perks & Quirks feature that adds enhanced character depth, Precision Strikes for additional combat tactics, expanded voice overs with over 8,000 new recorded dialog lines, controller support, a redesigned user interface, and more.

We spoke to InXile’s projecr lead Chris Keenan earlier this year in regards to Wasteland 2 making the leap to both Xbox One and PlayStation 4. In the interview, he discusses the game’s move to Unity 5, how the PC’s point-and-click interface translates to the console version, and more. We also got our hands on the Director’s Cut last week at E3, which we’ll be publishing shortly, so keep an eye out for that.

        I supported this on Kickstarter but never got around to play it. From what you're saying I get that it's not as good as Fallout 1&2?...

          It just wasn't my cup of tea. Too rough around the edges, crap graphics and bad combat. I did play it right after Divinity Original Sin though which is leagues above.

          It's not bad. the combat isn't perfect and story isn't as good as fallout1/2. I played it right at the kickstarter and the final area was pretty broken, but I've heard it's been smoothed out.

          I thought it was pretty good! Rough around the edges but a refreshing CRPG with a really cool setting and situations with real choice. The rough edges seem entirely smoothed out with the directors cut so I'll be giving it another (dastardly this time) playthrough.

        Why? Did you not like it? I finished it and thought it was pretty good. Not great, but good.

      Wow, this looks a lot better graphically! Perks look great too. What a great incentive for a second playthrough.

      seeing the trailer reminded me how annoying some of the enemies in that game were. I'm with Trelain, it'll take a lot for me to play this game again.
