Wild West Online shows first in-game footage, offers early bird preorder packages

In other games it might be called a founder’s pack, but in Wild West Online, the team is calling it an Early Bird special. No matter what the lingo, the end result is a pre-order bundle that allows players an avenue to secure alpha and beta access, a discounted Steam key, and some extra cosmetics, such as an exclusive horse skin, a gun skin, and a character outfit.

The Early Bird packs range from $20 to $60 and will only be on sale through July 7th. The two higher-priced bundles also contain in-game bonuses such as housing plots and currency.

The team took pains to mention that this offer is only for early testers who want to get in on the ground floor and don’t mind playing an unfinished product. Fortunately, the studio promised “no fuss” refunds up until the second alpha test for anyone who buys a pack and then changes his or her mind: “This gives you a chance to play the alpha yourself and opt-out if you think the game won’t develop into the game you wanted.”

While you’re mulling over whether or not to pay into Wild West Online at this juncture, take a gander at some early in-game footage after the break. It’s just some scenery flowing by, but hey, it might spark your imagination!

here’s what i don’t get about sergey titov,

he’s got four of gaming’s greatest catastrophies and an engine that can make them faster than he can design them

if his engine can make semi-complete looking games on the fly and is somewhat easy to use for people, why doesn’t he just sell the license to his engine to indie devs who would love to be able to churn out games quickly?

Refund if I don’t like it? I’m in.

As much as I want a Wild West MMO, they are using Sergey Titov’s engine which is notoriously Hackable so they will get no money from me.
This game will be nothing but a few legit players getting slaughtered by the hackers.

Regardless of the various issues that pose some questions and risk, I decided to invest in the Collector pack. Ever since playing through Red Dead Redemption, I’ve been fantasizing about a western MMO. So let’s see how this goes.

They say that their will be some community run RP servers that will have their own rule sets which could include PVE only, but you should probably wait for that to actually happen first.

All this game has done is made me wish there was a Wild West mmorpg, in the more traditional mmorpg style.

So their “in game footage” is all just stock assets. No combat, no actual in game footage, nothing. Add on top of that their paid alpha, and it just smacks of a money grab.

A money grab backed by a money back guarantee?

Reader
Lord Zorvan

A worthless “guarantee”.

“Oops, sorry we’re out of money, so we can’t develop the game and are shutting down! Unfortunately, all the money we had went into the development we did do, so no money left to refund. So sorry!”

Sounds about right, lol.
