ABOUT WASTELAND 2
The sequel to the critically acclaimed smash hit Wasteland and the predecessor to the post-apocalyptic Fallout® series, Wasteland 2 brings to life an alternate future history where America is just beginning to stir from the radioactive aftermath of a deadly nuclear holocaust that took place in 1998. Players must take command of an inexperienced squad of Desert Rangers – the only law left in the Arizona wastes – and set out across the treacherous landscape to help the last remaining remnants of humanity in their struggle for survival against hordes of bandits, criminals, mutants, cultists and worse – much worse.
