27 Games Like Wasteland 2

Games Like Wasteland 2 Our compilation of games like Wasteland 2 features other role playing adventures that rely on deep turn based gameplay for their combat mechanics.

Set in a unique alternate timeline where nuclear holocaust has destroyed the world in the late 90s. The game now explores what is left 15 years later as players join the Rangers and design their own squad of fighters to take on the deadly Wasteland. With many different strategies to pursue and over 80 hours of gameplay the game has been marked as an engrossing one. Like many RPGs before it the game thrives on player choice both in how you combat enemies and advance through the game world.

Gameplay in Wasteland 2 uses a semi-overhead perspective which players use to control their party of custom adventurers. This group can include four carefully designed characters and then paired with 3 NPCs from within the game world to allow a party size of up to 7 for plenty of combat depth. With each character you add bringing new personality, motivations and talents to the team the role playing elements in Wasteland 2 are some of the most impressive in the space.

This collection of games like Wasteland 2 aims to provide more experiences in the turn based genre that rival that of Wasteland 2. In these games (for various platforms) you’ll get to build your own team of characters, explore large game areas, solve quests in multiple ways and enjoy tactical turn based combat.
