Wild West Online outlines the massive changes coming March 20

Hoo-ee. There’s a whole mess of stuff in the newest patch for Wild West Online, so much so that the patch notes are jam-packed with videos showing all of it off. Players will see the change right away with the shifts to character creation that force you to align with a faction, as well as the new frontend system that has integration for the game’s real-world currency shop. There are also new customization options for character outfits, horses, and even firearms.

But all of that is just a coat of paint, not changing how the game actually plays. No, the changes in play come from things like the full day/night cycle, the first pass at character skill trees, an improved map interface… the list goes on. You’ll really want to look through the full patch notes, but you can get a taste of all the changes through the selection of videos just below. (That’s right, just a selection. There’s a lot of stuff here.)

waitign patiently i guess. i think the game needs actual pve (beyond fetch quests and such without any combat involved) more than it needs factions. the existing outlaw system was in need of some tweaks here and there but overall worked fairly well imo.

I think it needs both. PvE is good, but i don’t want this game to fall in the traps of constant raid content. It’s a wild west mmo at it’s heart, it should be focused on the people settling, exploring and shooting.

i mean it’s got pve questing but there’s no combat involved in any of them unless someone decides to pk someone else while doing them which there’s no reason to at all anyway.

it was amusing to me to wander around doing quests of this nature for a couple hours but my friends i bought copies for were less keen on that sort of thing pretty quickly asking “i wanna shoot stuff!!!”

which leads into some of the economy and bandit/lawman system tweeks that the current systems could use.
