‘West Of Dead’ Shooter Game Revealed, Voiced By Ron Perlman (VIDEO)
X019 has held a number of awesome announcements over the last 24 hours, with the likes of a debuting DONTNOD adventure and Obsidian’s creative new offering providing an unending source of hype during the proceedings. The fun keeps coming with the quick-draw of a stylish new old-west shooter by the name of West of Dead.
Inhabiting a world of supernatural desperados, West of Dead appears to offer a hero in ghoulish gunslinger William Mason, appropriately voiced by Hellboy actor Ron Perlman. Adopting an old-school twin-stick control scheme, players are tasked with delivering slick, six-shooter punishment to a ferocious assortment of baddies. Check out the trailer below alongside an official description.
Purgatory, Wyoming, 1888. A place of gun smoke and darkness, sin and damnation, wendigos and witches. Step into the boots of the dead man William Mason (voiced by Ron Perlman) in this fast-paced twin-stick shooter. Dodge behind cover as you try to outgun your enemies in the unknown procedurally generated hunting grounds. The Wild West has never been this dark.”
As part of the X019 proceedings, a beta has officially gone live for West of Dead, with Xbox One users exclusively able to let the bullets fly until November 24th. After that, a full release is planned for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One sometime in 2020.
