West of Dead will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC via Steam, GOG, and the Windows Store in 2020, publisher Raw Fury and developer Upstream Arcade announced. An open beta is now available on Xbox One until November 24.
Here is an overview of the game, via its official website:
Purgatory, Wyoming, 1888.
A place of gun smoke and darkness, sin and damnation, wendigos and witches. A shifting, chaotic world that takes its form from the memories, culture or beliefs of the souls who pass through. When a dead man awakens with only the memory of a figure in black, he sets into motion a chain of events that have truly mythic consequences.
Step into the boots of the dead man William Mason (voiced by Ron Perlman) and descend into the grim and gritty world of Purgatory in this fast-paced twin-stick shooter that’ll put your skills to test. Dodge behind cover as you try to outgun your enemies in the unknown procedurally generated hunting grounds. The Wild West has never been this dark.
- Twin-stick shooter with tactical cover usage.
- A dark and gritty Wild West.
- Procedural hunting grounds for action variety.
