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 developer of Dishonored and Prey. Very well received by players and the press, the title got off to a very good start.

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

Weird West is a success!

Often these titles are playable in first person view, but Weird West changes his stance to offer us an isometric view and make us discover this western universe meeting the fantastic. An astonishing bias, which did not prevent the title from being bought by 400,000 people in two weeks, well aided by some rave reviews, even if some concerns (we think about the AI), came up in almost all tests.

A little zombie plague to celebrate?

A far more than honorable score for a game of its kind that doesn’t come out of an AAA studio, especially since the title is accessible in the Game Pass since the day of his release. To celebrate this, WolfEye has been launched a free special event called The Plague who, at the time of Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare, filled the universe with zombies! The studio also tells us that this event is the first in a seriesthat will add new storylines, encounters, territories and travels in the coming weeks.

A road map unveiled

There are many things planned, but as you can see in the video accompanying this news, the game will soon be a content packa “Nimpossible” mode, an event called Caged Ones, or a mod support† All this will be totally free, but the possibility of paid extensions is not excluded in the future. For now the studio hasn’t announced anything about it.
