Game News Bad West: Release date, gameplay, coop, all about Far West style God of War!
With God of War Ragnarok on our doorstep, it’s time to think about what’s next! Yes, what can we play after the so-called GOTY? We have the answer… Evil West, a crazy action game in a supernatural Wild West. A kind of mix between PlayStation blockbuster and Weird West. Does it hug you? So here is all the information about it.
When is the Evil West action game release date?
Let’s start with the most important. Evil West can be used in next November 22 on PC, PS4, PS5, One, Xbox Series. If you’ve been following the news on this action game, you may have noticed that it was originally slated for release in September. “Evil West was released on five platforms, including several generations of consoles,” explained the studio Flying Wild Hog and publisher Focus. “Refining our game is necessary… It’s a goal we’re always chasing”! Fortunately, you won’t have to wait long. See you in November to play “Evil West”.
What is Evil West? Sounds like God of War?
Evil West is a third-person action-adventure game, with a significant focus on battles, narrative (we talk about this later). In this sense yes, we can consider it as a ‘best friend of the God of War’, with battles taking place both at range and in close combat. Like the PlayStation game, it’s even better to mix the two! For others, you are the pilot Jesse Rentier, one of the last members of a guild of demon hunters who protect humanity. So you can imagine it, you have to kill a bunch of them.
What is the scenario and the story of this Evil West?
On the sidelines of its supercharged action, Evil West seems, surprisingly, to emphasize storytelling as well. Some of the presentation videos thus reveal carefully staged cutscenes, and secondary characters that are the same. Yes, this dear Jesse Rentier will not be alone in his mission. In particular, he can count on the help of his father, William, who raised him in the Rentier Institute, the famous hunter guild mentioned earlier. It can also be upgraded to unlock skills. And not only that there is Edgar, your faithful companion! In general, you are not much to open the mystery of a conspiracy of vampires, who work in the greatest secret. All this will take you to visit oil fields, mines, canyons and ghost towns.
Is it possible to play with two players?
Good surprise, yes! It is actually possible to play Evil West with 2 players! On the Steam page of the title, we read: “solo or co-op, hunting and eliminating bloodthirsty beasts in style”. So far, we don’t know anything. Let’s imagine that the second player is the pilot of Edgar, Jesse’s faithful companion – a former member of the Rentier Institute guild.
In terms of gameplay, Evil West relies on a mix of ranged and melee action. The hero can thus rely on many weapons, such as a donkey, capable of inflicting many blows at once; a rifle, which can target the weak spot of enemies; a shotgun or even a flamethrower or a machine gun. Everything promises to expand over time – but here, we must not let it go the importance of struggle in close combat! By sticking the pies on your opponent, the latter will start to flash, opening the way to a kind of very fast finishing move (like Doom). To listen to the developers: the most effective is still a mix of the two. As shown in our preview, everything is very strong, with the possibility of blocking, dodging, even avoiding. Possibilities for more fun.
What is the progression system in Evil West?
We have finished everything related to the development system. In addition to unlocking various weapons and tools throughout the adventure – Evil West features a skill tree for each of these tools! All of this translates into points to spend, just to dump more bullets, give them a chance to ricochet, or recover bullets if you hit a sensitive enemy point. Eventually, it will also be possible to infuse the arsenal, with lightning for example… Your gauntlet can then chain blows at an impressive speed. In short, everything seems to be implemented so that we can be completely happy.
