We've been working hard on the latest Wastelands patch and have a lot of new features, bug fixes and even a few easter eggs for you.
Check out the new LFG mode to speed up the grouping process and find new people to stand with you against The Iron Hand. Once the group leader has initiated a mission, group members will now have an accept dialog for coordinating the start of the mission. Give it a try and let us know what you think.
The Wastelands have expanded! There's a new area to the far right of the overworld that caps off the end of the first campaign, something to suit the mood of the final missions.
Below are some of the changes that have been made since our last patch, you can also see detailed notes while in game - click on the version number or the patchnotes button in the pause menu.
