Hard West: Scars of Freedom DLC Breaking Out Today
March 3, 2016 - An escaped slave-turned-vigilante, Libertee falls prey to the experimentations of a mad surgeon. Her body twisted, but enhanced with supernatural abilities, she sets off in pursuit of the doctor only to find herself torn between vengeance and the threat of a much more powerful enemy.
Available today for Hard West, Scars of Freedom is a downloadable scenario merging gothic horror and the wild west in an original tale of revenge, offering seven missions of deadly tactical combat, 10 playable characters, and a morbid new method of character customization.
Players can once again customize their gunfighters, though Scars of Freedom offers a more…literal take on character-building by swapping out body parts to enhance Libertee's abilities. Transplant a gambler’s liver to bring bad luck to those around you or a vampire’s brain to grant the ability to regenerate in the shadows, and transform Libertee into a walking force of destruction.
Scars of Freedom is a downloadable scenario for Hard West on PC (Win/Mac/Linux) and is available today for $2.99, and free to all Kickstarter backers.
Return to the unforgiving world of Hard West for an adventure in the Civil War Texas. Libertee is an escaped slave-turned-vigilante, enhanced without her consent with superhuman capabilities by one Doctor Gorman. Hungry for answers, and for revenge, she tracks down the mad surgeon, but his motivations turn out to be the opposite of what she had anticipated. As she makes up her mind about the doctor’s fate, the two will have to face an even more powerful enemy.
Experience a brand new tale in the weird world of Hard West during 7 new, specially crafted tactical combat encounters and overarching world map gameplay. Make strategic purchases for your gunfighters, then wreak havoc on your enemies and use their technology for your benefit. Enjoy a story narrated by two protagonists whose outlooks on life vary wildly, but who, deep inside, are more similar than they would like to admit.

@droezelke: sounds like the nature of E3 more than anything. the people there playing alongside you aren't necessarily the same sort of people playing in paid for servers with their clans. (46 minutes ago)
@GriftGFX: Knowing they played with the known youtube BF players/experts, it surprises me. (47 minutes ago)
@GriftGFX: They said the mechanics are there to use team play to your advantage, but that in the end the players didn't care for it. Ofcourse just 1 opinion, but not the opinion I expected. (49 minutes ago)
@GriftGFX: Just read a preview on a Belgian site who played 2 days of BFV at E3, and their main complaint was that team play was hard to achieve, as the system doesn't really work for team play. (51 minutes ago)
@Melmoth: Just read up on it. Itls developped by a member of Crytek while still working for Crytek and is based of the CryEngine, but it is proprietary to Ubisoft. How that works in terms of royalties (4 Hours ago)
@Melmoth: Is the Dunia Engine Crytek property? I don't think so (4 Hours ago)
I mean they can keep upgrading it but why bother when they have more capable engines already. (17 Hours ago)
