Wild West Online outlines current system initiatives

    
8

Busy times over at Wild West Online, where the dev team is pushing forward on multiple fronts. Currently, the devs are focused on bringing back quests to the test server, a new supply chain gameplay system, animal hunting grounds, land deeds, player-owned plantations, and an improved town capture event.

Speaking of town captures, the devs gave a broad overview of how this system will work within the larger framework of factions, such as bandits and sheriffs. The devs said that factions “still define ‘side’ you’re aligned with in a global conflict, but they also give your character perks.”

Other discussions taking place right now involve new facial features for male characters, the design of an impressive-looking gatling gun, and a new map called the Northern Regions which may be mostly focused on relic hunts, gold mines, and hunting grounds.

Wow, the racism is strong in this title. The setting is problematic anyway (you know, expanding into a land that…Native Americans already lived in, wiping them out, and then permanently taking their land), but a shirtless Native American man with a tomahawk and a feather headdress. C’mon.

And before people scream about “political correctness,” I know its a fantasy game. But we don’t play WWII games as Nazis with “roleplaying” elements about sending Jews, Roma, and so many other people to death for a reason. Because that was very very wrong. Well, so were many elements of the American West.

Personally, I think it’s fine. A large part of the problem is that people refuse to let go of the past. We are not going to live out the next thousand years stepping on eggshells. And to ask anyone to do so is to ensure that racism outlasts all of us.

I love how people today try to impose the laws of today on the past. Can you imagine how many laws we are currently breaking of the culture 300 years from now!?

The Nazi comparison isn’t accurate. Germans didn’t go to war with the Jews to claim land.

Would it be better to play a Comanche?

haha the tip off was actually me randomly logging into the launcher and seeing a patch which i didn’t see when i did the same after reading and commenting on the last article the tip was about because i had forgotten lol.

strangely absent is the forum posts about the big patch that the launcher links to. i logged in for about 90 seconds last night and was greeted with indications of territory control point captures and such so i guess that’s what kind of game this is now which i don’t normally associate territory control gameplay with the wild west but what do i know?

There would have been quite a lot of territory control issues. Claim jumpers! Native Americans toeing the lines forced on them by…er, whatever you’d label the probably-also-native-Americans (but who don’t get the capital N).
