Free as long as it's part of the catalog and you probably still have to buy most DLC. This is an educated guess after someone recommended Game Pass to me. Only some DLC is free.

I'll probably try it for free then buy it on Steam for mods.

Possibly the title I've most been looking forward to this year. I still need to replay #2.

Also looking forward to this.

I have recommended XBOX PC Game Pass here a few times, always saying that usually only the base game is offered in the Pass. But IMHO, choosing between EA (Electronic Arts) Origins, Ubisoft Uplay and XBOX PC Game Pass, I prefer the latter, hands down.

I didn't find the WL2 CE that bad really; the tin lunchbox was creative. Still, this newest collector's edition makes me regret not buying it this time around; from what I've seen, it's the best CE for a game that I can recall.

Well, it's German, but…you will, likely get it without understanding the language

loading…


As mentioned before, one of the best CEs ever. Especially considering this was like 88€, which is 28€ more than the digital game.

Pretty sure, the production cost alone of that is is beyond 50€.

I agree shame you don't get the physical game in a nice DVD case anymore though.

Those days are long gone it's usually a download code for Steam.

Wastelands 3 looks to be vastly improved given it was delayed so long.

Edit: Wait I also hated how they removed or changed a few quests in the DC edition.
I didn't realize they did that. I played mostly the original version, at release, and only played ~20 hours of the DC.

The one thing I noticed was the god awful quality of a lot of the voice acting. Some of the worst I've heard in decades. I hope they improved that a whole lot for 3.

They changed the Highpool's irrigation quest to make it easier, and a few other encounters were made so you couldn't save certain NPCs. Not a big change but it was noticeable.

Can't play Wasteland because you are playing Morrowind?
What year is this?

How about all games have a single huge lootbox you pay for up front that contains all the options, items, skins, unlocks etc? I'd pay for that!!

Well his excuse might be one old game. My excuse is I'm currently deep into numerous singleplayer gems, each better than another. No time for mmos.

While I know you are just trolling at this point, I just wanted to point something out regarding the multiplayer mode for those who don't know:

-You can play with up to 1 other player (total of 2)
-You got a shared inventory
-Saves are on both machines and can be continued in single player or later multiplayer
-You are still limited to your 6 character team, every player can control some of the characters

Source: https://www.gameinformer.com/2020/06…eland-3s-co-op

So it's pretty much the same as in Divinity Original Sin 1/2 from that standpoint.

@Kordanor don't bother he's been calling Wasteland 3 an MMO since Co-Op was announced.

I personally have no interest in playing online or Co-Op but it worked in Original Sin 1&2.

From this article it sounds like there is no couch coop. Also steam doesnt list one.

How sad, I could enjoy a couch coop here with my kid

Now I'll have to convince The Old Grognard CouchPotato to make a pair with me

I played that far in the DC, but I went to the other place, the greenhouse, since I did Highpool the first time. So I missed it.

Haha, as someone who periodically revisits Morrowind (thanks, Tamriel Rebuilt), I can sort of get this. Though I'd never prioritize it over a potentially great new game.
