Wasteland 2 is being re-released in a fancy new package, so now’s a good time to talk about one of it’s coolest features.

In Wasteland 2, even small choices can have huge consequences, and many of these decisions are made during gameplay. Every playthrough is very different thanks to this remarkable reactivity; it’s not something we see much in modern games beyond BioWare, but the old-school style gameplay of Wasteland 2 allows for it.

In the video below, InXile boss Brian Fargo shows off a few examples of choices you’ll make on your journey.

Wasteland 2 hits Linux, Mac, PC, PS4 and Xbox One on October 13.
