Here's an overview which emphasizes the game's Westworld vibe: "In Wild West Online YOUR ACTIONS decide if you’ll be a hero, a villain or something else entirely in this R-Rated adult’s playground, where you choose if you want to follow the law of the land or throw the good book out the window. Dig deeper and you might start to suspect there’s more going on here than just lawmakers and lawbreakers – underneath the surface this west is even wilder than meets the eye." Here are the details on early access:

Out of the Blue

Daylight saving time ends overnight tonight/tomorrow morning, so brace yourself. The good news is that in falling back we gain an hour, rather than lose one. The bad news is that this does not actually impact the length of the day or the night, so it doesn't actually provide extra time to enjoy November's Full Beaver Moon, so get it while it's hot.
