InXile announced that Wasteland 2 would be making its way to the Xbox One yesterday, and today they’ve announced they’re also bringing the game to the PS4.
Via the Playstation Blog, Eric Schwarz of InXile Entertainment detailed the changes that newcomers would see in the console version of the critically acclaimed PC game.
For the Game of the Year Edition, we’ve ported Wasteland 2 to Unity 5, the latest version of this highly versatile game engine, which has let us overhaul the game with some new visual effects, improved character models, upgraded environments, and Unity 5′s physically based shading to get more realistic lighting and shadowing. This is all something we wouldn’t have been able to do on the previous generation of tech.
Of course, that’s all great, but how does it play? In this new edition, we’re beefing up our existing gameplay and adding some new features. You’ll be able to customise your squad even more with our new Perks and Quirks (traits) to add unique bonuses and characteristics. Our new Precision Strike (aimed shots) system will let you target individual body parts to cripple or stun enemies, or shatter their armour so you can mop them up, giving you even more options in combat. And you’ll need those options, because we’ve been hard at work hand-crafting each battle you’ll find yourself in.
Wasteland 2 will be available on both the Xbox One and PS4 late this summer. Be sure to stay tuned to OnlySP for all the latest regarding Wasteland 2.
