Wasteland 3 managed to raise 60 percent of its funding goal during the first day of its crowdfunding campaign so it doesn’t come as a surprise that the game has been fully funded in just a little over three days. Thanks to nearly 14,000 backers, it exceeded the initial goal of $2.75M.

“Without you, we would simply not be able to maintain our independence and keep fully true to our visions for great RPGs that you love,” wrote inXile Entertainment boss, Brian Fargo.

The developer has now revealed three stretch goals, which are as follows:

  • $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).

Wasteland 3 will release simultaneously for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in Q4 2019.
