Weird West Debuts New Footage At Devolver Stream

The immersive and creepy western action game from the co-creators of Prey and Dishonored has gotten a lot more detail in a new walkthrough.


Weird West, the immersive sim from the co-creators of Prey and Dishonored, got a short-but-sweet new look during the Devolver Digital stream. In the three-minute presentation, creative director Raphael Colantonio walked us through the basics of how the game works and the multiple ways you can outsmart and outflank your enemies.

The game features five heroes with interlocking narratives that shift as you make your way through the game. As Colantonio explained, your actions will have permanent consequences for your companions. You can revive and keep playing, but if your companion fell in combat and you didn't revive them before you were taken down, they're gone for good.

To deal with the weird western enemies, you can employ a number of different playstyles--from a classic guns-blazing forward attactk to laying traps and using stealth. The presentation also explained how the game relies on a mixture of scripted and dynamic events to create authored moments that still leave a lot of flexibility.

Weird West is coming to PC in 2021.
