Dead Man’s Country throws you into the teeth of the American west
Have a pioneering spirit and wouldn’t mind stepping back in time to see how you’d do on the frontier in the late 1800s? Then saddle up with Dead Man’s Country, a new multiplayer open-world RPG that’s slathered with old west flavor.
The game is clearly putting its setting up front as a selling point: “Face the untamed harshness of the wild in a landscape of vast forests, soaring mountains and desolate plains.”
With randomly generated items, a deep crafting system, housing, abandoned forts, farming, hunting, taming, multiplayer matches, there’s plenty to do. It’s not quite the historic old west, however, because you’ll also be facing the plague and zombies (survivalboxes gotta have them zombies).
Players can pick from among PvP, PvE, and custom realms. Those who want to fight over something substantial can clash over water rights, which each farmer will need to thrive.
Dead Man’s Country is currently in a pre-alpha state and has posted a roadmap of the development to come.
