Desperados III will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC this summer, publisher THQ Nordic and developer Mimimi Productions announced.
THQ Nordic also released a new trailer introducing legendary bounty hunter Doc McCoy, who returns from previous entries in the series for the sequel.
Here is an overview of the character, via THQ Nordic:
Need a gun for hire? Ask for Doc McCoy, a ruthless sharpshooter and veteran field medic, he’ll get the job done. With his custom made Colt Buntline Special, he can shoot the wings off a fly—or an opponent from far away. He also can give an enemy special treatment with his syringe…
McCoy spent his younger years studying medicine in England. When he finished his studies, he was looking for an adventure and oh boy, he found one. He set sail to the new world, crossed the Atlantic, and set foot on the American shore. There, he was forcibly recruited to fight in the American Civil War. He fought and worked as a doctor alike, but could not stand the horror and the futility of the war, so he deserted after a year of service and became a gun for hire. Nowadays he’s known in certain circles as someone who gets the job done and doesn’t ask too many questions.
