Flying Wild Hog, the developers behind the Shadow Warrior games, have announced Evil West, their dark and moody take on Westerns, which is set to release for PS5 and PS4 sometime in 2021.
Sadly only a CG trailer was shown for the game, but it gives a decent idea about what to expect in terms of tone from the game. In it you play as Jesse Rentier, a vampire hunter pushing back forces of evil. It looks to have Shadow Warrior’s traditionally wild weaponry and exotic gear. The game is also playable in both solo and co-op.
You can catch the synopsis for Evil West below:
Evil never sleeps… but it bleeds.
A dark menace consumes the American frontier. As one of the last agents in a top-secret vampire-hunting institute, you are the final line between humanity and a deep-rooted terror that now emerges from the shadows. Rise up to become a Wild West Superhero, eradicate the vampire threat and save the United States!
In visceral, explosive combat, unleash hell with your firearms, lightning-fueled gauntlet and gadgets. Kill bloodthirsty monstrosities in style as a lone hunter or in co-op with a friend. Explore and fight in a narrative-driven campaign while upgrading your weapons and hunting tools. Unlock new perks to evolve your monster-slaying mastery, crafting your own playstyle to defeat the supernatural hordes.
