WolfEye Studios has unveiled their new action-RPG Weird West during The Game Awards. It’s the new studio’s first project and is set in the supernatural Wild West. You can wishlist the game already on Steam. Check out the game in the trailer here!
Last night’s TGA had plenty of new game reveals, more info on anticipated titles and even a console reveal, but one game that might have slipped under the radar of many gamers is Weird West. Developed by the newly-formed WolfEye Studios, Weird West takes the action in action-RPG to the lawless and brutal frontier of America. But unlike more realistic Wild West games, here there’s a supernatural twist to it.
Survive and unveil the mysteries of the Weird West through the intertwined destinies of its unusual heroes in an immersive sim from the co-creators of Dishonored and Prey. Discover a dark fantasy reimagining of the Wild West where lawmen and gunslingers share the frontier with fantastical creatures. Journey through the origin stories of a group of atypical heroes, written into legend by the decisions you make in an unforgiving land. Each journey is unique and tailored to the actions taken – a series of high stakes stories where everything counts and the world reacts to the choices you make. Form a posse or venture forth alone into otherworldly confines of the Weird West and make each legend your own.
What also should make you keep the game in mind, is who the developers are. WolfEye Studios was founded by ex-Arcane Studios devs who co-created the excellent immersive-sims Dishonored and Prey. So, the pedigree for a special role-playing game is definitely here. At the moment, there’s no mention about the release window nor which platforms Weird West will come to. Make sure to stay tuned for further news in the future.
