Weird West Gameplay, Trailer, and Story
Weird West is an action role-playing game developed by WolfEye Studios and Published by Devolver Digital. This RPG implements elements of the immersive simulator genre with randomized elements throughout the world. It will feature the story of five bounty hunters.
The player takes the role of heroes in the American frontier who encounter supernatural happenings. The world and your surroundings are interactive and responsive to your actions. For example, when you shoot an ammo box, it’ll explode and cause damage to the surroundings.
The team describes the gameplay as the “action version of Fallout 1 or 2.” Whereas, the game actually seems very similar to a twin-stick shooter.
Weird West is phenomenal so far. It’s like Fallout New Vegas meets Dishonored in an isometric mystical western setting I love exploring. The world feels remarkably reactive and experimental. WolfEye’s pedigree leaves fingerprints all over this game. pic.twitter.com/KenyghABQy

The story revolves around strange events that combine typical Western tropes with fantasy-based or supernatural elements.
There is action, horror, fantasy, cowboys, and even science-fiction. Along with the blending of genres, there is also a mixture of multiple mechanics. It is set in a unique version of the world with magic, monsters, and unexpected destruction in the Wild West.
Players have to keep exploring the world, find and complete quests, discover the truth, and survive in the twisted world. There is also a “Permadeath mode” in Weird West. In this game mode, the player character and their companions die permanently upon defeat.
The available trailers and gameplay footage for Weird West seems pretty great. It is the kind of game that no one knew they wanted but turns out to be fun actually. You can give it a try if you are not playing anything else this Thursday.
