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.

Departing Early Access and hitting Steam for the first time on May 10th, Wild West Online has utilized community feedback to expand its features and gameplay in order to create a compelling western experience for its official launch on Steam.

With launch Wild West Online will contain an assortment of new features, including:

  • The addition of the rival faction global conflict to the world.
  • The addition of several major public PvP events that happen randomly throughout the world. Players who decide to participate will fight to get their hands on rare items and rewards.
  • More PvE quests and missions given to players by NPCs throughout the world.
  • More activities such as expanded mining, farming, hunting, cooking, brewing alcohol for sale, and much more.

Players who purchase Wild West Online now will receive a Steam key when the game launches as well as special bonus items, including:  

  • Access to the Early Access version of the game TODAY.
  • 10 cosmetic bags with an assortment of items to alter the look of characters, valued at more than $20 USD.
  • 10 gun skin bags to customize guns, also valued at more than $20 USD.
  • Early access to Wild West Online’s release – 48 hours before it becomes available to everyone on Steam.

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.
