Interplay's original Wasteland, the seminal post-apocalyptic RPG that inspired Fallout, which then in turn inspired pretty much everything else, was released three decades ago in 1988. To celebrate such an impressive milestone, inXile has released the Wasteland 30th Anniversary Bundle on Steam for $44.99 or your regional equivalent.
The bundle contains the original Wasteland, the Director's Cut of Wasteland 2, a number of digital extras, including a fresh music track from the upcoming Wasteland 3, and in early 2019, it will also add Wasteland - 30th Anniversary Edition remaster to your game library. The remaster is created by Krome Studios, the team behind the remasters of the original The Bard's Tale trilogy. You can find some examples of their work in this Kickstarter update for The Bard's Tale IV: Barrows Deep.
Here are some bundle details:
inXile Entertainment is proud to announce the Wasteland 30th Anniversary Bundle, a celebration of the video game series which launched the post-apocalyptic genre in video gaming and inspired successors such as the Fallout series. The bundle includes items from across the history of the series, along with two new items - a musical track by Mark Morgan, which represents the first publicly available new content from 2019’s Wasteland 3, and a currently in pre-production 30th anniversary remaster of the original Wasteland by Krome Studios (currently partnered with inXile on a similar remaster of The Bard’s Tale Trilogy).
Items in the Wasteland 30th Anniversary Edition Bundle include:
This bundle will contain all the items listed above and be sold for $44.99, launching at 10% discount in celebration of the game’s anniversary. When Wasteland - 30th Anniversary Edition is released, it will also be added to the libraries of customers who purchased the bundle at no additional cost.

The signature item of this bundle is Wasteland - 30th Anniversary Edition, a remastering of the first game that will feature updated graphics (which maintain the spirit of the original pixel art), run natively in current operating systems and at all current resolutions, and offer other quality of life features. This work is being done by Krome Studios, the team currently behind a similar remastering of The Bard’s Tale Trilogy.
