Weird West buckles up for a January 11 release

The first of a collection of new trailers for Weird West, the new action RPG / immersive sim coming from developer Wolfeye Studios and published by the honest folks at Devolver Digital, has dropped. This video showcases a new look at gameplay and an announcement of a January 11 release date. The game will be coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

The trailer, which features voice over commentary by creative director, Raphael Colantonio, provides a quick peek at the start of Bounty Hunter Jane Bell’s story. Jane is one of five protagonists playable in Weird West, and it’s your job as the player to find out who kidnapped your husband and murdered your son.

In the trailer, Ralphael explains that one of the major goals with Weird West is “for everything that seems interactive to actually be interactive.” The trailer goes on to show the player throwing bottles to distract enemies, search through containers and bodies in search of loot, move bodies, and both light and extinguish fires. We also get a cool moment where Jane leaps from a ledge only to take out enemies in slow motion, al a Dead Eye in Red Dead Redemption.
