Blood West is a survival-horror FPS where you explore twisted wild west environments, scavenge for supplies, hunt deadly monstrosities, and gain power to face terrifying bosses.

In "Blood West," players step into the shoes of a lone gunslinger brought back to life by powerful spirits. Set against the backdrop of the Wild West, this dark and gripping adventure requires players to navigate treacherous landscapes, confront formidable adversaries, and build an arsenal in order to survive. Facing twisted demons and eldritch horrors is the only way to end the curse that has befallen the frontier.

Blood West is an immersive Wild West FPS where, as a revenant desperado, you take on the twisted demons and eldritch horrors, while you search for the means to end the curse that has befallen the frontier, and maybe find some peace for your wicked soul. One quest after another, the spirits of the land will lead you towards even greater challenges. And whatever your path may be - things will get rough. 

But, it’s not all about who has the biggest, baddest weapons – in the shadows of the Wild West, cunning and stealth are important allies. Players must master the art of the silent strike, silently stalking enemies through moonlit landscapes, carefully selecting targets and defeating foes without a whisper. In addition to mastering stealth skills, players must adapt their strategies, explore alternative approaches, and think on their feet to overcome threats. 

With its intense combat, gripping storyline, and stunning visuals, "Blood West" promises to deliver an unforgettable gaming experience

Take back the frontier, gunslinger! For hell is empty and all the devils are here!

Get ready to dust off your trusty six-shooter!

Those who feel brave enough to cheat death, and clever enough to be strategically stealthy should mark their calendars, Hyperstrange announced that Blood West is set to leave Early Access in December 2023. 

The full launch into 1.0 will include updates and finishing touches to visuals and gameplay for the first two chapters of Blood West, and will also introduce the third and final chapter of this unforgettable, wicked Wild West adventure.

Key Features:

  • Challenging FPS combat: Thrilling gunfights and heart-stopping battles against ruthless outlaws, rival gunslingers, and supernatural creatures. Players must master a variety of weapons and skills to overcome enemies.
  • Stealth mechanics awarding caution: A true gunslinger knows that the element of surprise is priceless. The quietest hunters are often the deadliest, and the ability to successfully eliminate foes swiftly and silently is necessary for survival.
  • Trait-based character progression: As players progress through the game, they collect skill points and gather artifacts that can be used to unlock new strengths and abilities to benefit their character. But, in the cursed world of Blood West, negative traits play a role as well. Each time the player dies, negative traits are accumulated and require action to reverse or negate the newly acquired negative traits.
  • Unusual and exciting enemies: Enemies are not only a physical threat, but present players with a challenge to think creatively. Whether it’s figuring out how to deal with bugmen who scurry away to alert all nearby enemies, finding the right ammo to harm ghosts, or learning the vulnerabilities of undead alligators – the challenge of each enemy makes each confrontation an intense and memorable experience.
  • Non-linear immersive gameplay: The ability to carve a unique path through the Wild West, and choose which quest to pursue next, provides players with an unforgettable, captivating, and empowering experience.

Currently available through Steam Early Access, Blood West is coming to PC (Steam) on December 5, 2023.
