Raw Fury and Upstream Arcade revealed the release date for West of Dead with a brand new gameplay trailer.
Starring Ron Perlman as the voice actor of the protagonist, West of Dead will be launched in less than a week, and this is exciting news for the fans of this top-down western shooter.
Originally revealed during X019, West of Dead is a dungeon crawler set in the darkest wild west you’ve ever seen. Playing as Willam Mason, a dead man, you will go through lots of procedurally generated dungeons in Purgatory, Wyoming in 1888. Seeking the truth of this dark world, you will face various threats, which will leave you no choice but to fight and wipe every last one of the enemies out of your way. Here you can take a look at the trailer:
As the new trailer shows off, you will deal with different types of enemies in Purgatory, and killing them wouldn’t be easy without perfect timing in taking cover and shooting. Having a plan for the boss battles is important in West of Dead as the world is quite destructible, which means anything you can cover behind could be destroyed by your enemies.
West of Dead is the second title by Upstream Arcade after launching Deadbeat Heroes in 2017. As a top-down brawler, Deadbeat Heroes wasn’t a successful debut for the studio regarding its mediocre reviews and small community. However, their new project seems promising in case of gameplay and visuals as well. Besides, they have Ron Perlman as the voice actor of the lead role in the game, the man who played as Hellboy in the first two movies of that franchise.
West of Dead will first come to Xbox One and Steam on June 18. You can play it for free on Xbox One if you are an Xbox Game Pass subscriber. PS4 and Switch versions of the game will be launched on a later date.
