I've been trying to find information about the differences between Wasteland 2 and Wasteland 2: Director's Cut. I found a great graphics comparison, but I'm more interested in the changes to gameplay, new features, and other improvements.

What things are new in the Director's Cut of Wasteland 2?


Here is the answer from their website:

What is new in the Director's Cut? Wasteland 2 Director's Cut changes a huge number of aspects of the game. Our main new features and changes include:

  • Graphical overhaul and update to the Unity 5 game engine.
  • Expanded voice-over with thousands of newly-voiced lines for key characters and scenes.
  • Precision Strikes system allows you to target individual body parts on enemies in combat, which lets you inflict negative status effects on them.
  • Perks system lets you pick bonuses for your characters as they level up.
  • Quirks system lets you pick a personality trait for each custom created Ranger during character creation, with a gameplay-modifying positive and negative quality.
  • Rebalanced gameplay, including virtually all combat encounters, weapons, loot drops and containers.
  • Controller support on PC and console. On PC, you can select from keyboard and mouse input, as well as Xbox 360, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 DUALSHOCK 4 controller modes.
  • There's plenty of smaller additions to be found, of course, but we'll leave those for you to find.
  • Do you know if the "smaller additions" are plot-related, or just minor improvements (e.g. UI changes)? – Thunderforge Nov 25 '15 at 3:21
  • Sorry, that's all I found about the D.C. That and the fact it is a rebrand of the game of the year. I don't know if there are any plot changes. I installed and reinstalled this game a million times. I need a good character creation guide. – vianna77 Nov 25 '15 at 3:53
  • I didn't see any plot changes when I played through it again, but I might have missed them because of the path I took... – Michael Campbell Nov 25 '15 at 7:13
