inXile’s Brian Fargo has updated the firm’s Kickstarter page with the first screenshot of Wasteland 2.

The shot was taken running inside the Unity engine, and it’s a rather early look as Fargo said the team has been “getting up to speed with Unity,” and discussing how the game is going to look and feel.

“Releasing a screen shot this early in the process is a new concept for me as we typically want to hone in every element before we show it,” said Fargo. “But based on the requests and our desire for fan input, we are doing so to solicit feedback on the basic look.

“Please keep in mind that we have not put in the particle effects and post-processing which will have a dramatic effect on the scene, and this represents just one of the various environments for Wasteland 2 so expect to see other quite different locales. Also, this particular camera angle is on the low end of a range that the player can adjust upwards to a much more top-down view, for those who prefer that style during game play.”

Wasteland 2’s Kickstarter campaign raised almost $3 million. The teams was asking $900,000. The game is expected next year on PC in October.
