Focus Interactive has released an extended gameplay trailer for Evil West, giving some indications of what we will see in the hotly anticipated shooter adventure game. In the 10 minutes of the new gameplay reveal, we saw our character start killing people around him by using his ranged weapon and dash ability to get closer to his victims.
After that, horrifying monsters came up to slay the fearless western knight but eventually, they failed. We also got the chance to take a detailed look at the in-game menu, featuring upgrades, perks, and lore sections that are expected to diversify our gameplay. Here are all the details you need to know about the upcoming TPS adventure Evil West.
Release date & platforms
Evil West is due out on September 24th for Xbox One, Xbox Series, PS4, PS5, and PC via Steam. No information has been shared yet about Evil West’s launch on Switch. You can now pre-purchase the game on its Steam store page for $49.99, which is the same price as A Plague Tale: Requiem.
Story & Gameplay
Evil West is a vampire-shooting game in which players will try to eradicate these silly monsters to save the United States. The protagonist of the story is a member of the Rentier Institue, a patriotic organization that has been standing up against vampires since the beginning of the 18th century, according to the game’s description. William Rentier is actively in charge of the Institue to organize agents programmed to kill whoever gets in their way.
There will be some bloodthirsty monster types with different powers. Highborns, the most powerful vampire kind, are able to make aerial strikes thanks to their wide-scale wings. Nagals, on the other hand, are melee attackers that usually roam in groups. Boo-Hag and Leechers will be the other two most dangerous threats to mankind. Each Sanguisuge will have unique skills to make your battle heavier.
Players will be able to use gauntlet, revolver, scorcher, and rifle to define their own combat style. Gauntlet will be your best friend in close fights, while scorcher will take the stage when you need to kill a hidden enemy. If you want to finish your job from a distance, you can use the rifle to take down vampires whenever you want. All weapons will be upgradable, and you will unlock new perks as the story unfolds.
Evil West will aim to provide a fast-paced, smooth combat experience for those who want to discover America’s terrifying locations while blowing vampires’ heads off. Players can get their hands on the upcoming shooter thriller on September 18th.
