Original Wasteland to be included with sequel

Kickstarter success story Wasteland 2 will be launching with a nice little bonus come October 2013: 1988’s original Wasteland.

The burst of nostalgia was, according to developer inXile chief Brian Fargo, “the #1 request” they had during the crowdfunding campaign. “Fortunately EA has continued to support us on this project and has granted us the ability to bring the original to the players.”

He adds: “It is great to be able to make Wasteland available for those feeling nostalgic or who want to experience it for the first time. It certainly will not be a pre-requisite to understand Wasteland 2, but it adds some extra flavor if you did play the prequel.”
