The Director’s Cut console port of inXile Entertainment’s post-apocalyptic CRPG, first released last year on PC, will now launch at retail on October 13th for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The digital PC version will arrive on the same date, free to all Kickstarter backers and owners of the original release.

Shifting from the Unity 4.5 engine to Unity 5, Wasteland 2: Director’s Cut will feature a visual overhaul, including enhanced lighting, textures, character models, and environments.

Audio upgrades will include tens of thousands of lines of new NPC voice-over dialogue, as well as more varied and impactful weapon sound effects.

And in addition to control scheme and UI optimizations for console play, gameplay updates will include a brand new Precision Strike mechanic for targeting enemy body parts, an all-new “Perk & Traits” system, redesigned combat encounters, enhanced cut scenes, and general balance tweaks.

So before Fallout 4 arrives in November, start off your post-apocalyptic RPG binge with Wasteland 2: Director’s Cut in October. Those two games alone will keep you busy through the rest of 2015 and beyond.
