The game is set in 2165, thirty years after the events of the first game. Humanity has found a way to heal the world, turning regions of the Wasteland into lush jungles, wetlands, and even tundra. Trade is growing, and a type of "Wild West" society is emerging. The brutal ways of the old world still remain, however, and these new, delicate biomes are under attack by gangs that want to control their resources. The Authority has returned, waging war against anyone who won't follow their rule.
The player assumes the role of Walker, one of the last Rangers in the Wasteland. After being robbed by the Authority, (the primary antagonists of the first game), Walker tears through the Wasteland to seek vengeance and to ultimately end the Authority's oppression.
