Desperados 3 release set for June 16 on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. THQ Nordic and Mimimi Games have revealed that Desperados 3 will be released on June. The third entry in the long-dormant Desperados series will be available on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, in both standard and deluxe editions
Desperados 3 will be available on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, in both standard and deluxe editions. For a limited time, the digital deluxe edition is being offered for pre-order at the same price as the standard edition at $49.99/£44.99. A collector’s edition will also be made available, which includes three post-launch DLC packs, and physical items, priced at $109.99/£99.99.
The game is the prequel to 2001’s Desperados: Wanted Dead or Alive, and is a Wild West-themed tactics game played from an isometric perspective. You’ll have a team of five gunslingers in your gang, each with unique skills and abilities to help hold your ground in six-shooter showdowns. There’s an emphasis on stealth tactics, but “blazing guns” is promised by the developer as a valid option.
The western experience will feature a prequel story to the classic 2001-release Desperados: Wanted Dead or Alive, easily the most well-received game in the series. In the new game, John Cooper is joined by the “runaway bride Kate, the shady hitman Doc McCoy, the giant trapper Hector, and Isabelle, a mysterious lady from New Orleans,” as they go through rural towns, swamps, and riverbanks in quest for redemption.
Much like other real-time tactics titles, this stealth game offers a variety of unique skills for each character, letting them distract, trap, knock out, and kill their way through open-ended missions, with teamwork and timing being essential.
Desperados 3 is a story-driven, hardcore tactical stealth game, set in a ruthless Wild West scenario. Play smart if you want to succeed. A good plan can make the difference between survival and finding yourself at the business end of a pistol.
