Wasteland 2 Gets Updated


Despite being a niche game, Wasteland 2 has been widely accepted as one of the best games released this year, by both critics and audience-alike. InXile is intent on making it even better though, so they’ve cooked up a pretty hefty update to alleviate some of the pressing issues and balance things out just a tad bit nicer. One of the most prominent changes in this lenghty changelog are the additional performance optimizations, that should make the game run much nicer on older machines. Here’s a snippet of the full log:

  • Large amount of memory optimizations, particularly with audio, to improve performance and stability on lower-spec systems and 32-bit operating systems.
  • Fixed enemy “unlimited AP” movement bug that allowed them to sometimes move much farther than intended.
  • Extensive improvements and fixes to California questlines, particularly in Hollywood and Griffith Park. May require you to load an older save file before Hollywood to fully benefit.
  • Added a travel speed toggle to the world map, allowing you to zip and zoom around if you so please (doesn’t affect encounters, only travel speed).
  • Added 50 new loading screen tooltips (some languages may not be supported yet).
  • Added support for “Very Large” text.
  • Switching characters with the right/middle mouse button while dragging an item will now cancel the current drag.
  • Dropping an item on the “junk” tab should no longer leave the item floating attached to the button.
  • The HUD should work correctly at 4K resolution.
  • The inventory should once again use position data.
  • Made the options menu taller. More options at once! How could you not want that?
