West of Dead is a fast-paced twin-stick shooter that takes place in Purgatory, a place of gun smoke and darkness, sin and damnation, wendigos and witches.

The Wild West has never been this dark.

Thrown into the unknown procedurally generated hunting grounds of Purgatory, your skills will be put to the test as you shoot and dodge your way through the grime and grit of the underworld. West of Dead evolves the twin-stick shooter with tactical cover usage, find out if you have what it takes to get through Purgatory with your soul intact.

Ron Perlman (Hellboy, Sons of Anarchy) stars as the voice of the main protagonist William Mason, a dead man awakened with only the memory of a figure in black. His existence sets into motion a chain of events that have truly mythic consequences. No one said dying would be easy.

Love is for the living, but you are not alive, my friend!

Starting today, you can check out the dark American gothic action of West of Dead with the game's new limited-time open beta, live on Xbox One and PC (Steam users will need to play with a gamepad for this beta) through February 24.
