Lead and Gold: Gangs of the Wild West features intense gunfights in beautifully rendered Western settings. Incorporating the unique Synergy system, which encourages co-operation and team tactics to achieve a maximum gameplay experience and rewards, Lead and Gold: Gangs of the Wild West calls upon players to team up to relive the excitement, danger, and mystery of the Wild West.

Immerse yourself in gameplay drawing from a perfect mix of cool-headed player skill and the brutal close quarter brawl of the classic Western shoot out.

Lead & Gold: Gangs of the Wild West's newest map, Jacob's Bridge, features new artwork and is set in the northern reaches of the Wild West. The new game mode, Demolition, pits two gangs against each other in a Powder Keg spin off where the objective is to blow stuff up. Rivaling gangs play simultaneously as both attackers and defenders battling franticly to destroy the opposing gang's objectives. 

In addition to a new map and game mode, gamers will be given the opportunity to change his or her Profession at any time in the game resulting in a death, and gangs will now be given the option to vote or kick off players of their own team. On top of the additions, several improvements were added to the game. And, in the spirit of true competition, WANTED posters will expand to the top three leaders of the leaderboard and can be found in the Sinner's Gulch map.

  • A diverse level-up system letting you adapt your character to each game round as it unfolds
  • A multitude of different game modes and settings, all with a distinct feeling of the Old West
