Black Powder is a skill based authentic Wild West multiplayer first-person shooter.

Players fight eachother in teams with the iconic guns of the time – as the name implies – loaded with black powder.

Weapon mechanics are one of the key features of Black Powder and influence the overall gameplay not only by the massive smoke emission that takes away your sight but also their realistic representation in the game.

This includes bullets fed with real life data that allows them to penetrate and ricochet.

Enough fat text ...get the horseshit off your spurs, come and see for yourself!

German based developer Division Games has launched a kickstarter campaign, looking for $11,970, in order to finish development on Black Powder.

Powered by Unreal Engine 4 we're able to provide cutting edge graphics in combination with streamlined realism, that will deliver an unrivalled first-person shooter experience.

The demo version of Black Powder (15 minutes of singlep layer fun) is available to all backers and will be sent out during our campaign!

Key Features:

  • No HUD: Atmospheric gaming experience due to no HUD elements on your screen. Count how many bullets you've loaded, check your pocket watch for the remaining time.
  • Full Body Awareness: Immersion due seeing your full body from the first-person perspective.
  • Bullet Physics: Every gun in Black Powder is shooting its own bullet - fed with real life data for mass, speed and penetration values. Depending on surface density, angle and thickness projectiles can penetrate objects... or ricochets are going to kill your teammates...
  • Body Hit Reactions: Characters will react to bullet hits depending on caliber, bullet speed and hit location!
  • Fire Propagation: Burn down buildings to get tactical advantage over your enemy or to light up the environment.
  • Interactivity: Pick up environmental items such as chairs or bottles and use them as weapons.
  • Authentic Gun Handling: The Old West is known for its rich amount of guns and their different handling.
  • Positional 3D VoiP: Communicate with your team and enemies.
  • Versatile Gameplay: Black Powder features a one life, objective based game mode in a row of scenarios including shootouts, robberies and rescue missions.
  • Mod Support: Powered by Unreal Engine 4 we're able to provide advanced access to modding tools that will allow you to create levels, weapons, gamemodes or anything else you can think of!
  • Stunning Levels: Black Powder offers levels that vary a lot in gameplay due to size, daytime, season and weather.
  • No restrictions: Enter all buildings, every room. Super detailed interiors will help you to dive into the game.

Black Powder is expected to come to Steam Early Access in Q2 2018.
