Wild West Online is an MMO game for the PC platform. The title was produced by the new 612 Games studio, where experienced developers, previously working on the Crysis shooter and the famous League of Legends, found employment.

Mechanics

Wild West Online is intended to be a simulator of life in the Wild West. The creators intended to distinguish themselves in this way from competitive MMO games, in which fun often consists only in performing repetitive tasks and grindings. The basis for this game was laid by the multiplayer mode of the famous Rockstar Games Red Dead Red Dead Redemption studio title. Players find themselves in the virtual Wild West, where they try to survive in the open world. Developers have taken care of appropriate diversification of activity and freedom of play. One of the main attractions is, of course, playing bandits and guardians of the law. We can, for example, join gangs attacking banks or kill and steal from people we meet on our own. However, we must remember that the more crimes we have on our conscience, the more greedy bite we become for law enforcement officers and head hunters. Nothing stands in the way of taking up one of these professions.

However, we may as well choose a completely different profession. Wild West Online This is because it allows to become e.g. a farmer or a gold prospector. What is important, such players are also of great importance in the game world, influencing the economic aspect, for example. We can also become.... a laze. In bars it is possible to sit and play cards or drink whiskey, which regenerates health in smaller quantities. Another noteworthy element is the system of craftsmanship. During the game, we obtain schematics that allow us to produce various tools, e.g. weapons.

Another interesting element is the possibility of setting up camps. With adequate resources, we can set up a "base" of this kind, where we and all members of our group will find shelter. In addition, we can kill any attacker who invades our area and bear no consequences for this act - after all, we have the right to defend our home.

There are two forms of play available in the production - PvP, i.e. a game with other people, and PvE, in which we perform tasks commissioned by NPC characters. They consist, for example, in searching for treasures or checking the designated area.

Technical issues

Wild West Online offers a large, diverse world. While having fun, we visit small camps as well as large cities, lonely farms, bandits' camps and wilderness areas. In the production there is a daily cycle, which affects the game, because it is easier to hide at night, for example.

Other

The game was initially supposed to be financed on Kickstarter, but the idea echoed so much that the developers obtained the necessary funds from investors.
