Wild West Online Skips Kickstarter and Early Access, Will Launch This Year
Previously planned as stretch goal content, features like playable female character, rich role-playing features and social activities such as card games will be available at launch. This is because of the overwhelming response to the game's debut, which allows the dev team to receive additional funding from the game's initial investors. With the funds the game can skip the Kickstarter and Steam early access phase and focus on full launch in fall 2017, according to 612 Games. Now the alpha and closed beta is slated for summer 2017 and it's not far away!
In Wild West Online, you can play a law-abiding citizen or a law-breaker with various roles like gold miner, farmer, deputy and outlaw, etc. The game is PvP-centric and criminal players will be marked as "wanted" and they will have a certain number of Stars to indicate their criminal level, just like GTA series. There are PvE contents like bounties, farming, mining, and trading. The game has some interesting features and I hope it could make everything right with the launch version.
