WolfEye Studios and Devolver Digital have released a new gameplay trailer for Weird West, detailing the five origin characters that players can control. Each character has their own story and journey but their actions will ripple throughout the world and have an impact on their future. Of course, the trailer also showcases a hefty amount of combat – check it out below.
Jane Bell is a bounty hunter who seems to be searching for her missing husband. Cl’erns Qui’g is a cursed pigman that’s viewed as a monster by society. Across Waters is a “guardian” of the land, tracking an “evil wind” across the plains with his bow and arrow. Desiderio Rios is a werewolf that can transform in the middle of combat and slice foes up. Finally, there’s Nell Bitterleaf, a future-seer that seeks to change “what’s coming.”
All five are tied together for a purpose “deeper than they know” and it’s noted that the more players dig, the weirder things get. Weird West releases in Fall 2021 and will be coming to PS4 and Xbox One along with PC. To learn more about the game’s permanent choices and the Conductor, head here.
