inXile Entertainment’s crowdfunding campaign for Wasteland 3 on Fig met its $2.75 million goal this weekend, just three days after the developer launched its latest project.

Currently, the game’s crowdfunding campaign has raised more than $2.8 million, pushing Wasteland 3 toward a series of stretch goals. According to inXile, the developer’s Fig campaign will add the following features to the role-playing game at funding milestones:

  • $2.85M: 37 Pieces of Flair – We unlock further Ranger customization, which could include multiple body types, more heads, and more hairstyles. Plus we’ll show items that your Ranger has equipped (gear like shovels, binoculars, etc) on their models.
  • $3M: Car Companion (Codename: Morningstar) – We add a talking car companion! Morningstar is an AI built to serve President Reagan, but he'll help you both in your travels and during combat, plus he'll give you well-timed advice on how to wipe out all the dirty commies out there. See more on him below!
  • $3.1M: Customizable Ranger Squad Insignia – At the start of the game, you get to customize a Ranger Squad insignia for your team, which will show up on your Ranger Base as well as elsewhere in the game (on flags, for example).

inXile’s crowdfunding campaign now includes a CrowdOx option for backers who prefer to use PayPal and will run for 25 more days.

Wasteland 3, which sends a team of Rangers on a mission to Colorado in the aftermath of a global nuclear apocalypse, was announced in September. The game will add multiplayer and an XCOM-style cinematic camera to the isometric RPG.
