InXile Entertainment today confirmed that Wasteland 2 will include the original Wasteland game that was released in 1987.
The original RPG, a godfather of post apocalyptic games , won numerous awards including being inducted into Computer Gaming World’s Hall of Fame. In 1996 they ranked it the #9 best game from a list of 150.
Brian Fargo, of inXile Entertainment, had this to say about the game:
“The #1 request we had during our Kickstarter campaign was to have the ability to play the first game. Fortunately EA has continued to support us on this project and has granted us the ability to bring the original to the players. 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.”
