Vera Visions presents...
A Post-Apocalyptic First-Person-Shooter
The wasteland laid quiet for over ten years. Only the sounds of irradiated raindrops or desert wind could be heard for this time. An engine rumbles in the distance. Signs of life in these wasted lands, perhaps?
Started as a love-letter towards everyone's favorite wastelands as a mod for the GoldSrc engine, The Wastes returns as a completely new game using id Tech 3 Technology! It's been a long time coming, and it's time for the wasteland to get some life breathed back into it.
It’s a game built upon the love for classic video games and movies. Imagine configuring and playing a game just like you did over 15 years ago.
Experience a fast-paced multiplayer frag-fest, with buffs that affect the performance of each individual player, game-play mutators, and many different game-modes, including:
Anarchy: A pure free-for-all. Choose your load-out and jump right in. No restrictions, no questions asked!
Team Chaos: Wipe the opposing team out in this round-based game-mode. Destroy what's left of them.
Capture The Flag: The classic attack & defend mode that's a must for every serious multiplayer game.
Vehicular Carnage: Jump right into the seat of your own custom vehicle and experience a derby with hood-mounted guns.
Destruction: Infiltrate the enemy base and destroy all their of their "precious" belongings. You might even find some treasure in there, who knows.
The game features over 40 different weapon configurations. Ranging from exotic melee weapons (like Throwing Knives and Sledgehammers) to high caliber handguns, firearm prototypes, as well as classic weapons – all waiting to be used. While people can also create load-outs to shape their play-style, you will find special weapons scattered all over the multiplayer levels along with ammunition and other items that will help you survive. You can also have mixed-akimbo configurations for the handguns.
Transportation is the key to surviving in the long run. Featuring an array of unique vehicles – ranging from V8s to trucks and even dune buggies. All of them being armed and dangerous.
Meet a cast of colorful characters: Mena the mechanic that keeps the Vagrants' engines running, Ezekial the Ronin Nomad with a filthy love of fire, Seal Bob (formerly Gustavo) the dishonorably discharged USMC Raider, Reese the gun-slinging Regulator, Red the Killshot disco-man that may or may not be the long lost brother of Vincent, Maddigan the dirty cop that lived through the fallout of society, and much more.
Customize your play-style with a system that affects the player-physics, controls and weapon behavior to maximize your strengths as a player.
Select from a variety of Heads-Up-Displays, model skins, spray logos and fully custom car-colors (only in specific game-modes). Tweak the game-experience to your liking, right out of the box.
Create your own levels and content easily with well-documented and community-maintained tools.
We know many of you have been waiting for this moment.
Time to wish-list The Wastes and get in touch with the development team (that's us!) via the community hub. Let's have a good time together.
Along with the Steam® page we've released a few new screenshots, including an updated shot of The Dunes (tw_dune). Hope you like the flair I added. We debated long and hard, one would think.
Why thank you. Yes, it's been a real brick road. I can tell you that much. In the coming weeks you'll hear a lot more from us. Soon you'll get a first peek at the Vehicular Carnage game-mode we've been teasing about! Make sure to follow us on Steam® and to wishlist us.
