Wasteland 2 to be DRM-free, Kickstarter rewards being ironed out
inXile has said Wasteland 2 will be DRM-free when it releases, and that those who donate to its Kickstarter Campaign at the $30 level will receive a “digital concept art book.”
The skill and weapon for supporters to the project will not affect the game balance, according to the post, but will instead be “entertaining” and those who provide funds at the “light” level will get post.
Here’s what the original rewards offered consisted of – note that the rewards are not “set in stone” as the developers are gathering community feedback on what the fans would like to see added.
Still, the listings below should give you a preliminary idea:
