Weird West: roadmap, sales… WolfEye takes stock after the release of the RPG-Western!

game news Weird West: roadmap, sales… WolfEye takes stock after the release of the RPG-Western!

Released on March 31 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, Weird West is the first game from studio WolfEye, founded by Raphael Colantonio, who founded Arkane Studios, and Julien Roby, former Dishonored and Prey developer. Very well received by the players and the press, the title started very well.

Published by Devolver, Weird West is part of a rather special breed of video game: the immersive simulator. If you don’t know what it is, think Deus Ex, Dishonored, Prey, Bioshock, System Shock or even Thief. Many situations are thus proposed, which can be approached in many different ways, and often with the creativity of the players. A feeling of freedom appreciated by players who know the principle, but games that are quite difficult to present to the public.

Weird West is a hit!

Often these titles can be played in first person, but Weird West changes his point of view to offer us an isometric view, and make us discover this western universe that meets the fantastic. An amazing bias, which did not prevent the title from being bought by 400,000 people in a fortnight, well helped by a string of rave reviews, even if a number of concerns (think AI) were highlighted in almost every test.

A little plague of zombies to celebrate?

A much more than honorable score for a game of this type that does not come from an AAA studio, especially since the title is accessible on Game Pass from the day of its launch. To celebrate, WolfEye has released a free special event, called The Plague which, at the time of Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare, filled the universe with zombies! The study also tells us that this event is the first in a serieswhich will add new story arcs, encounters, territories, and journeys in the coming weeks.

A roadmap revealed

There are many things planned, but as you can see in the video that accompanies this news, the game will soon have a content packa “Nimpossible” mode, an event called Caged Ones, or a mod support. all this will be totally free, but it is not impossible that payment extensions will arrive in the future. For now, the study did not announce anything about it.
