West of Dead, a new supernatural Wild West shoot ’em up starring Ron Perlman, will be coming to Steam and XBOX One on June 18. Publisher Raw Fury revealed the date today during the Guerrilla Collective livestream, along with a new trailer showcasing the kooky, spooky action.
The new shooter is described on the official West of Dead website as “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.”
Players will get to “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 cover shooter which combines the fluidity of twin-stick controls and tactical cover usage. Put your skills to the 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.”
West of Dead is currently free to play in open beta on Steam. As an added bonus, anyone who gives the ole’ cowpoke a try will get a 15 percent discount on the purchase price when the game launches.
West of Dead will also be available for the Nintendo Switch sometime in early August.
