The co-creators of the Dishonored and Prey franchises, Raphael Colantonio and Julien Roby, have announced their first game at their new studio, Wolfeye. Revealed at The Game Awards was “Weird West,” a top-down action RPG that will be published by Genital Jousting and Hotline Miami company Devolver.
Weird West is a new take on the classic Western genre where gunslingers are fighting fantasy creatures. The game will apparently play out by taking you through the origin stories of multiple different characters, described as a “group of atypical heroes.”
“Discover a dark fantasy reimagining of the Wild West where lawmen and gunslingers share the frontier with fantastical creatures,” reads a line from the description. “Journey through the origin stories 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 stories 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.”
A Steam page is live for Weird West, but there is no word on when the game will launch. Right now it appears only to be confirmed for PC. Check out the announcement trailer above.
