There are two types of companies in the gaming industry – those that are not afraid of innovations that set new trends, and those that follow those trends to upgrade them or take a portion of the market share. That is not necessarily a bad thing if gamers get an exciting new release to play. Is that the case with Outlaws of the Old West?
It shouldn’t take an expert to realize that the developers were probably inspired by Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption 2. However, we love the Wild West and the cowboy theme, which is why we are willing to give it a shot.
The survival-themed game is set in the open world of North America in the 19th century. You had to make a lot of effort to survive back then, and that is what you will have to do in the Outlaws of the Old West. You will have the option to mine and collect resources, hunt, and craft. The only other alternative is to die, so we assume you will welcome doing the above-listed actions.
The developers claimed that they prepared a huge map where you can explore deserts, mountains, swamps, and plains. The servers will support up to 150 players, and we will get to play both PvE and PvP modes.
The settlements will be customizable, and the economy will be player driven. The authors promise a morality system that will force you to make tough decisions, but also design your own stories.
“The game and the servers will both be affected by the decisions the players make,” says Wandering Wizard, the company who agreed to publish the game, in a press release.
Deciding whether you want to play the role of a protector or become a part of the gang will be entirely up to you.
Coming Very Soon
Outlaws of the Old West will enter the Early Access phase on Steam on March 12. It is expected that you will be able to fight other players, trade, craft, harvest, and build your home. As expected, the developers also expect bugs. However, they promise to iron everything out in about a year, which is the period planned for Early Access.
If you want to buy Outlaws of the Old West at an affordable price, you should do so while it is in early access. Otherwise, you may risk having to pay more once the game receives its full version.
