Last week, Focus Entertainment revealed a release date for Flying Wild Hog’s Evil West, and today they’ve partnered with IGN to shoot some meaty 10+ minute footage showing the horror western shooter in action. It starts off fairly typically with a shootout with some standard outlaws in the middle of a dusty ranch, but soon the action descends into creepy caverns and forests teeming with Lovecraftian horrors and big bad bosses. You can see the images for yourself, below.
While the whole Evil West aesthetic isn’t necessarily my thing, the action is fluid and it feels like Flying Wild Hog is throwing everything away. Hopefully, Evil West delivers after FWH’s disappointing Shadow Warrior 3. Need to know more? Here is the official description of Evil West…
