Downloaded and been playing the W3 beta for about two hours. Here's some random thoughts --

- Mentions W2's story but does not seek to continue it. Instead, it focuses on rebulding Arizona following the destruction of Cochise and establishing a supply line through AZ from Colorado. It does continue some elements from W2 that were cliffhangers, like Angela Deth's fate,
- Character building, skills and all are pretty much like W2. I made a Sniper and an Assault Rifleer and it's been going very, very well indeed. You can create up to four rangers and have two companion followers.
- Starts faster than W2. You are dropped right in the middle of action for the tutorial part and learn on the fly if you've never played W1 or W2.
- Camera system is similar. I do not mind it but can be an annoyance to some.
- Game looks gorgeous and runs silky smooth. Playing on a GTX1050 and an octo-core Core i5-9300H

In short -- so far, a worthy successor to W2. Anyone who enjoyed W2 should wishlist it.

Thanks, I have it wishlisted already. I'm not a fan of the military theme but my real concern is how unbalanced the stat system was in Wasteland 2.

It is annoying when you have useless stats in a game and there is a balance to be found between having dump stats and making them all even.

I'm not saying that's easy (even Fallout 1 didn't do this right) but that's one thing that Wasteland 2 did wrong IMO.

How is the combat? Do we get more options this time around?

Combat seems so far pretty similar but through the prologue there were some environmental objects I got to use to my advantage lik barrels of oil to explode who do a burn effect. There is also the addition of special "Precision shots" unlocked after a number of successfull hits. It's like a targeted strike where you get to pick a body part with various effects on combat.

As far as stats go remember this will change as this is a beta but they do seem to make a difference this time. One of my guys is a melee guy with 7 strength and he hits like a brick wall on top of having pretty good endurance.

This sounds really good to me. Thanks for the detailed information.

I hope fighting styles will be more balanced and viable throughout the game.

I forgot to mention the perk tree, Carabas. I didn't yet get points.

Interesting. Thanks for the screens. It's hard to tell if there are more options but it looks a lot more streamlined than the list of perks in Wasteland 2.

It is, in a good way. InXile took the feedback of 2 to heart and they are still listening for W3. The loading screen clearly says to expect bugs and head to the forums to give feedback about the game. It was streamlined but not dumbed down. I got three snipers on this party with automatic rifles, shotguns and melee for backup and it's a pretty effective combo.

I am going to try sinking in a few more hours to progress in the story and see what happens.

Cool. Streamlined but not dumbed down is the way to go. Smile

So apparently W3 is pushed back until August because of the virus crisis. I hope you're not too gutted BZ.
