Tonight’s Game Awards saw the debut of Evil West, a new game by Shadow Warrior developer Flying Wild Hog Studios and Focus Home Interactive. The game blends supernatural horror with a wild west backdrop.
Players control Jesse Rentier, one of the last agents of a secret vampire-hunting institute. A dark force threatens the American frontier and it's up to him to blast it back to Hell. Besides conventional firearms, the trailer shows off Jesse’s multi-purpose gauntlet that sports, among other things, Wolverine-style retractable blades and can even channel lightning to deliver devastating attacks. As players progress through the narrative-driven campaign, they'll unlock new gadgets and perks to mold the gunslinger to their liking. Evil West can be played alone or alongside a partner in co-op. If you’re a fan of games with similar vibes such as Darkwatch, you may want to keep an eye on this one.Click here to watch embedded media
Evil West comes to PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC in 2021. It’s looking like a busy time for Flying Wild Hog, who also plans to launch Shadow Warrior 3 next year as well.
