The journey back to the revised and revamped wastes is nearly here, as the Wasteland 2: Director's Cut launch is a week away. To help prepare you for the journey, be it new or familiar, is a new video covering squad creation and tactics narrated by game creator Brian Fargo. Creating the right squad is of utmost importance in Wasteland 2, as the variety of encounters, enemies, and choices mean your squad must have a range of abilities. It is up to you to decide who makes up your squad, as they can be one of the pre-made squaddies from inXile, or custom creations by you. If you go the custom route, you can alter everything about the squad member, from their appearance and clothing style, to the skills, attributes, and weapon specializations. Try to go with a balance of different abilities, as like I said before, the right squad can make all the difference in the wastes.

In addition to choosing the perfect squad for your journey to save the people in the area, it is just as important to use sound tactics to overcome any encounter. This is where a range of abilities and specializations can come into play, as it can influence how you approach each encounter. Not all of them are solved by combat, as the correct dialogue choices can eliminate a fight, or make it a whole lot easier. Sometimes you need safe cracking or computer hacking to get out of the siutation or present a new pathway, so your choices in who to bring can prove invaluable.

Wasteland 2: Director's Cut arrives October 13 for the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. It is a free upgrade to all current owners on PC, while anyone else can pick it up for $40.
