Weird West doesn’t look as strange as it does stylish. The game comes from WolfEye Studios, whose co-founders include Dishonored and Prey veterans Julien Roby and Raphael Colantonio, and it’s being billed as an immersive sim set in a dark fantasy reimagining of the Wild West.
Odd creatures roam the desert alongside gunslinging cowboys, and the choices players make will determine the game’s outcome. It seems to be a role-playing game with serious decision-based stakes. Here’s how WolfEye describes it:
“Journey through the origin stories of a group of atypical heroes, written into legend by the decisions you make in an unforgiving land. Each journey is unique and tailored to the actions taken – a series of high stakes stories where everything counts and the world reacts to the choices you make. Form a posse or venture forth alone into otherworldly confines of the Weird West and make each legend your own.”
