'Wild West Online' Development Will Need An Extra Year

by Rainier on Dec. 24, 2017 @ 5:14 a.m. PST

Wild West Online is an open-world action-based, online multiplayer game in which players are free to explore and interact within a thrilling Wild West setting.

In Wild West Online your actions decide if you’ll be a hero, a villain or something else entirely in this R-Rated adult’s playground, where you choose if you want to follow the law of the land or throw the good book out the window. Dig deeper and you might start to suspect there’s more going on here than just lawmakers and lawbreakers – underneath the surface this west is even wilder than meets the eye.

The game features a bevy of content, including world exploration, resource gathering, PvP combat, PvE game missions, treasure hunts and much more.

Back when we announced Wild West Online, we planned to release by end of the year. Yet over the course of the last few months and reading all the feedback from our community members, we realized the game needed more to meet your expectations. We have no intention to release a half baked product, and we strive to be transparent about that the whole time and this is why we pushed our release date back to late winter 2018.

While this is an exciting time, we regret to inform you that the next update will be postponed until January as we have all voted as a team that we do not want to risk potentially breaking the game over the Holidays when folks have time to play. It could be immensely damaging to try and release a patch and run into issues that we are unable to solve during the Holiday break.  Because of this, we hope you understand why we have chosen to delay this update and instead give you as much detail as possible about it via the Roadmap.  

Have a wonderful Holiday Season everyone.

Key Features:

  • Become an Outlaw, Deputy or Anyone You Want – In Wild West Online players are free to choose their own path. How they play the game and how they interact with other players is up to them. Based on their actions they will either become a lawman or an outlaw. If a player becomes too “lawless” a bounty will be placed on their head and it will be open season. Don’t want to be either? Players can pick a different path such as farming the land, becoming a miner or exploring the world.
  • An Expansive Western World – Wild West Online will launch with a large map featuring wilderness, settler encampments, lone farms, small settlements, large towns, train stations, gang hideouts, landmarks – and bizarre uncharted places of an "unknown nature" that curious explorers will be drawn to seek out.
  • Intense PvP Combat – Experience the dangers of the West with intense PvP combat that will make Tombstone look tame. Players are much safer in towns since attacking other players is punishable there, but in a wild there are no laws. When a player dies, they only lose “quest items” - mined gold, recovered artifacts and other items required for some quests. All other items remain with the player.
  • PvE Missions and Activities – Take on bounties, farm, mine, sell goods, gather resources and more, in Wild West Online there is no shortage of activities to do.
  • Form a Posse – Players can group with up-to eight friends to form a posse. It’s then up to them if they want to gain a reputation as bandits or tame the West as deputies.
  • Light Crafting – Wild West Online features some light crafting where players will need to learn recipes and forage for supplies or convert looted items into materials to craft necessities.

Wild West Online full release is planned for winter 2018.
