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.

    MrWhite More additions like that to full games is whats needed, instead of searching for a "killer app". That could be years off. I'll take what Codemasters and Capcom have done. (7 Hours ago)
