Wild West Online - Rootin' Tootin' Open World PvP

Posted May 11, 2017 by Suzie Ford

Wild West Online - Rootin' Tootin' Open World PvP

Many fans on the Grand Theft Auto forum were hoping that a leaked image showing a cowboy hat wearing dude was a teaser for Red Dead Redemption 2. While not from that game, the image comes as great news for MMO fans in the form of Wild West Online, an open world PvP extravaganza being built for PC. Developers of WWO have plans to reveal much, much more about the game in about two weeks when they will bring their project to a $250k KickStarter.

The core of the game is already underway at 612 Games with the KickStarter funds being used to "secure extra funding" for more expansive features.

Here's what we know so far:

  • player gangs will either break or defend the law
  • seamless open world using server shards for "a few hundred" players each
  • the comparison to Red Dead Redemption is intentional
  • players can specialize as gatherers such as prospectors, farmers, etc. and will live in resource-themed camps
  • player driven economy
  • crafting by finding and learning recipes
  • story, character and gameplay driven
  • murder isn't the only way to break the law
  • bandit lifestyle, for instance, provides opportunities for bank robberies, stealing from other players' camps or in town, etc.
  • no NPC combat, just PvP engagement at the onset
  • survival themes may be borrowed
  • stretch goals will add things like train robberies, etc.
  • slated for a hopeful late 2017 release
Be sure to swing by the Wild West Online teaser site or to to read the full interview.
