Way back in the long long ago, Wild West Online joined the MMO scene, kinda flopped, relaunched, all but sank its studio, was rescued by Sergey Titov’s Free Reign Entertainment, split into multiple titles, and got a reskin as New Frontier last year. Wild West Online itself appears to no longer be on Steam itself, but one of those other multiple titles is also live as of this week. That’d be Magnificent 5, a standalone battle royale game.
“100 players across a massive battlefield. 5 Players per Team. 20 total teams. Explore, Collect, Take Aim and Pull the Trigger. Meet the new Battle Royale, WILD WEST Style!”
The downside is the game appears to be region-locked as we’re getting the old “this item is currently unavailable in your region” error when trying to load it up, and we’re not sure for how long. (OK, maybe this isn’t a downside.) This problem may also help explain why it appears there are under 50 players online in the F2P title right now as we type this.
🤠 We are happy and proud to announce the Steam release of our wild-west Battle Royale: Magnificent 5!
