WWO Partners and 612 Games have announced that Wild West Online will feature mounted combat. According to the companies, this is one of the most requested features and will come to its alpha build later this month. In order to showcase it, 612 Games released a brand new gameplay trailer.
While this is only a 30-second trailer, it will give you an idea of the game’s mounted combat mechanics. It looks kind of cool, so be sure to watch it.
Wild West Online is a systems-driven, open world, Wild West-themed action MMO built from the ground up for PC. The game will feature world exploration, resource gathering, PvP combat, PvE missions and much more. It will be using the Nightshade Engine and while the companies have stated that they are not associated with Sergey Titov, gamers are still a bit skeptical about it. 612 Games officially stated that it isn’t a subsidiary of Free Reign. The studio is also not financed by Free Reign or Sergey Titov.
It’s also worth noting that the game is not yet available on Steam. As such, the game’s alpha version can only be purchased via its official website. According to the team, Wild West Online will hit Steam when it’s complete. Furthermore, those who have pre-purchased the game through its official website will get a free Steam key once the game is available on Valve’s distribution service.
Naturally, and while its concept sounds cool, we strongly suggest waiting until the final game is out. Then and only then we will find out whether Wild West Online was another cash-grab attempt or not. Until then, it’s cool watching all the new features that will be coming to it.
