Wolfeye Studios has announced that its upcoming isometric action-RPG will ride into town (and demand a high noon showdown) on PlayStation and Xbox consoles, and PC, this January.
Developed by Wolfeye, a studio made up of former Dishonored and Prey devs, Weird West is a unique take on the Wild West genre. It features its fair share of cowboys, coyotes, and midday duels, of course, but this frontier is also home to Pigmen, the undead, giants, and more. It is very much a “weird” west, and it can be experienced by all on January 11.
“Sheriff Wolfeye Studios and their slack-jawed deputy Devolver Digital have announced that Weird West, their upcoming action RPG experience set within a surreal vision of the developing frontier, is coming to PC, PlayStation, and Xbox on January 11,” a press release for the announcement reads. “To coincide with the news, the bucking broncos have opened pre-orders on Steam and released the first part of a brand new video series. Wolfeye Studios creative director Raf Colantonio walks through an overview of the game in the first of a series of deeper dive videos.”
Anyone that pre-orders on Steam will receive a horse named Calamity in-game that is described as “a dependable mule that provides a leg up at the beginning of their adventures by doubling their inventory size, allowing them to escape locations even if enemies are chasing them, and faster travel to avoid missing out on timed objectives.” Calamity’s saddlebags will come stocked with items like lockpicks, bandages, and a Golden Ace of Spades upgrade token as well.
Weird West will hit PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on January 11.
