Hard West: when XCOM meets Weird West

Hard West: when XCOM meets Weird West

What happens when you put XCOM combat into the Weird West with a Heroes of Might and Magic world map? You get Hard West, a new tactical game peppered with exploration and RPG elements and developed by CreativeForge Games (who just announced Ancient Space too) whose members previously worked on Call of Juarez and Dead Island. It's on Kickstarter and has almost reached its goal already, even Brian Fargo backed it. Head there for all the details about short bloody shootouts, nightmares, deadly sun, myths and more. Trailer and images inside.

Backed. If it could combine the best parts of Silent Storm and Jagged Alliance, it would be perfect.

zombies, zombies, zombies everywhere. Is this trend ever going to die?

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The best conquest modes are assault/double assault. They need to bring them back... but not for Bad Company. (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX But they're also introducing new field upgrades too which just seem to further break predictable encounters. Lots of give and take. (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @MikeManiac61: Battlefield 1 conquest sucks. They've improved it (or are?) by introducing a neutral bleed state (tied flags = no ticket gain). That's a partial fix. (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @MikeManiac61: Nah conquest is okay in Bad Company 2. I just don't like the movement, combat, or vehicle handling. It's all piss poor compared to BF3/4. (3 Hours ago)
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 Unlike in past BF games if were down by that many, by some miracle we could eventually make a comeback. (4 Hours ago)
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 @GriftGFX: After playing BF1 for awhile i feel the same. Still not use to the ticket bleed in this game. If you're down by 300 tickets in BF1, you've already lost. (4 Hours ago)
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 @GriftGFX: PC wise i can understand BC2 wasn't popular there. Controls, especially on a mouse felt super sluggish and CQ was too small with massive chokepoints. I'd prob place BC1 ahead of BC2. (4 Hours ago)
