When it comes to open sandbox games, one’s sense of morality tends to skew just a wee bit, especially if it means survival. Players of Outlaws of the Old West will now have to keep those urges in check, however, with the return of bounty hunters in the game’s most recent patch.
Patch 1.0.8 is mostly about a variety of tweaks to code, VFX, and audio as evidenced by the latest patch notes, but the update also brings bounty hunters in to the game. These NPCs will actively hunt down players whose morality level dips too low. Also, they have a bear, so that seems like a pretty strong deterrent.
The devs have also offered a word regarding the rise in hacking reports. While specifics on what’s being done weren’t offered, it is a matter that the team is taking very seriously, and those who see instances of hacking are asked to email a report so the devs can better focus their efforts.
Finally, there’s a short video detailing some of the cooking and food storage implements that are in Outlaws. You can check that out below.
