Post news RSS Happy 15th Birthday The Wastes!

A historic day for The Wastes... ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎

Posted by on

Fifteen years ago, The Wastes (then known as Wasteland Half-Life) fell upon this world like a ruthless warhead. It's ok if you forgot, for we haven't even thrown a party...yet. So why don't you join a few games of The Wastes on WON2 or Steam, or perhaps remember the times you bashed heads open with your sledgehammer on 56k. While you're having nostalgia, we're happy to tell you that something is cooking up. Sadly it's not ready, and even if you played years ago you have to wait like everyone else, but later this week we have something historic of our own to show. We hope you will love it. In other late news, we have added all the old releases of The Wastes so they're now properly archived for the modern era. Till then, Happy 15th Birthday The Wastes!

This was such a great mod, I wish it got the same amount of attention as Counter-Strike and Team Fortress. :(

I was playing this back in 06 and it was a crime nobody was on even then :/. Probably the most fun I had in a free-for-all, the lack of music and the settings were so atmospheric. Each weapon had district pros and cons that never really had one "supreme" lay-out. (Well maybe handcannon and spear... >:D ) The special weapons were game-changers, but not unfairly so. They made for brutal fire fights getting to them.

Ah I'm just rambling. I didn't forget about you The Wastes and I miss you!
