Evil West will not release on 20th September 2022
The game will now come out on 22nd November. It has been delayed by a month! This decision came from Publisher Focus Entertainment and Flying Wild Hog, who have collaborated on the production of the game. As they have released an official statement regarding this delay, we know a great deal about it.
The official statement started off with the team thanking the fans for their overwhelming response to the teasers and the multiple resources related to the game. Then they explained their motive that the game would release on five different platforms and other generations’ consoles as well. Hence they have to make sure that their final product of the game is as per the expectations of the fans.
And this is the real reason behind its delay as they need more time to perfect some aspects. They ended their statement by acknowledging the frustration the fans must be going through, but this was an inevitable step which needed to be taken to make sure that the game launches to its maximum potential. So, unfortunately, as a fan, you will have to wait a month longer!
Evil West will be released on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Series S/X. The multiplayer mode that the game has to offer is a bit complicated. So, that is a topic for another day. Well, there is nothing else that you can do other than waiting, so we have compiled a few other details that you should be aware of before the game releases!
What is the game’s setting?
To put it simply, the game is all about Wild West and vampires. It will be sort of an apocalypse condition in which you will be the last vampire hunter. And in order to preserve your heritage, you’ll have to fight your way through the land. In all this chaos, you’ll face many enemies who will be after your life, but just a few strategies can help you in innumerable ways. With the newly upgraded ammunition, as a player, you will be able to combine a number of attacks. But that is when you’ll get access to the game.
The extended gameplay trailer gave away a major chunk of the plot. So, make sure that you check that out on YouTube. The new underground dungeons have unveiled a new chapter in the universe of vampires. But there is more to just dungeons in the game as multiple other locations are also available. So, this makes it clear that as a player, you won’t be stuck in one place for long. It is all about exploration and combat. In order to eliminate the enemies, you’ll have to strive hard to find them. But these enemies are nothing compared to the destructive Boss battles that the game has in store for us. Hence in order to win the mission, it is vital for the player to make himself familiar with the game’s environment and thus launch the attack accordingly.
There is only a multiplayer online mode, but the footage did not focus on it much. However, the option of playing as vampires with your friends is very much available. The game was first announced at the 2020 Game Awards and was supposed to have a 2021 release. But then, due to some internal issues, the team delayed the launch until September of 2022. However, again due to the creative problems, the team had to once again delay a month further. But the team is hoping that the fans will be understanding!
So, that was everything about Evil West and the reasons behind its delay. To stay updated on the matter, don’t forget to bookmark this page!
