Wild West Online’s brand-new gameplay video shows bounties, saloons, and more

It’s the video release that Wild West Online fans have been waiting weeks for: A six-minute glimpse into the western MMO’s gameplay.

During the video, you’ll get to see quick snippets of character creation, open-world exploration, outfits, saloons, gambling, thieving, rest cabins, and different environments. Some of WWO’s unique features were on display, such as a hotkey that pops up icons that highlight interactive features in the game world. Newspapers are pretty important as well, as the devs will use them to highlight in-game events and push the story forward.

You’ll also witness how the bounty system works. Players can claim bounties of naughty desperadoes on public boards and then hunt them down for cash. It might be a good idea to bring a friend or two along to ensure victory, however.

Fans have until July 20th to decide whether or not to preorder the game and secure a spot in alpha and beta testing. Give the video a watch after the break!

Can I scalp a pale-face? No? Then I’ll pass.

I hope this is good so I can stop raging that Red Dead Redemption is not on PC.

They named the server ‘Dolores’? Trying to get sued?

Ok so despite the controversy I’m going to have to play this. Looking good for an early build. Hope their are bounties on other players.

I hate that there is fast travel. They should kill that dead.

I really hope there are meta PvE events to partake in. Something along the lines of the American Civil War campaign in The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.

Reminds me of The Secret World’s art and character looks as if Funcom decided to make a western MMO.

I like it.

For all we know this company struck out on their negotiations with HBO and decided to go it alone…

I’m interested but their prices should be half of what they’re asking.
Also this game is already P2W by selling in game currency, inventory space etc and it’s not even in Alpha yet. Woooooow.
All in all kinda turns me off.

Pretty much every game with a cash store (F2P or P2P) in history sells inventory space and/or in-game currency. A few I can think of off the top of my head: Path of Exile, GW2, EVE… guess they’re all pay to win.

Yes, yes they are imo.

I’m of the opinion that ANY advantage gained by paying IRL $ is P2W. This includes inventory space, in game currency, XP boost consumables etc.

Other people don’t care about any of that and to them having cosmetic items such as clothing that is available for purchase with IRL $ but unobtainable through gameplay is P2W.

P2W is highly subjective.

“that is available for purchase with IRL $ but unobtainable through gameplay is P2W.”

GW2 has gold to gem conversion though.

Lets just hope that there is plenty of other content in the game to take part in aside from pvp bounties.
