Weird West Released

It's high noon for Weird West, which is now available for PC, PlayStation, and Xbox. This is a stylized RPG set in a version of the wild west that lives up to the "weird" in the title. The launch trailer offers a look at that weirdness and the game's cel shaded graphics. You can pick up the Windows edition on GOG.com*, the Epic Games Store, the Humble Store*, or Steam. Here's more on the debut title from WolfEye Studios, which was formed by Arkane Studios veterans Raphael Colantonio and Julien Roby:
Discover a dark fantasy reimagining of the Wild West where lawmen and gunslingers share the frontier with fantastical creatures. Journey through the story 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 adventures where everything counts and the world reacts to the choices you make. Form a posse or venture forth alone into an otherworldly confines of the Weird West and make each legend your own.

If you let the perfectly serviceable graphics keep you away from the game, you're going to miss out on some stellar gameplay.

It might look like Commandos, but it doesn't have the forced 'just one solution allowed here' puzzle aspect.

Instead it uses a Deus Ex 'three paths to any point' design combined with tons of emergent physical and metaphysical mechanics, handing the tools to the player to play how they want.

This game will be classed with Fallout 1 / 2 and Arcanum in future.

It's got that 'golden years of pc gaming' vibe, so I'll eventually pick this one up. The dev has a good rep and will likely patch it up quickly

A good rep? Unless I've missed something this is literally their first release.

Pretty sure they meant that the dev's previous work (Prey and Dishonored etc) give them that good rep. Which I'd agree with.

yes, I’m taking about Julien Roby and Raphael Colantonio

Not with those graphics. The style must be an acquired taste.

This game seems legit cool, looks similar to that other 'weird west setting' game Hard West.
