A limited beta of Wasteland 2 is now available to those who backed the project on Kickstarter.

The beta is available only to those who pledged US $55 or more to inXile and Brian Fargo’s post-apocalyptic RPG reboot.

Those who are eligible can obtain a Steam key by logging into the Ranger Center.

inXile has also announced that the game will come to Steam Early Access at a later date.

“With most of the mechanical issues behind us, now we can really start digging deep into the game and finding ways of taking it from good to great,” said Brian Fargo in a Kickstarter update. “No amount of prepping and planning can replace old-fashioned hands-on playing, testing and iteration time, which is why we are so grateful to have you, our backers, help us hone this process like never before.”

In April 2012, Wasteland 2 raised US$2.93m on the crowdfunding site – more than three times its US$900,000 goal.

Wasteland 2 is a direct sequel to the original, which was itself the inspiration for Interplay’s Fallout RPGs – Fargo was the producer on the first Fallout.
