Desperados III New Free Update Includes A Cat, A Chicken, A Dog and a Speedrun Contest

Game publisher THQ Nordic released a new trailer for video game Desperados III introducing a new free update that includes three animals.

The new free update will introduce three new unlikely heroes: a cat, a dog, and a chicken. This is another one of the four new Baron’s Challenges that will be added to the game. This is the Rescue Aid Society Challenge and players will take control of Stella the Cat, Agent Floofs, and Sergeant Cluckers. Their mission is to free Doc McCoy from imprisonment.

Check out the details here:

  • Three Men with No Name: Where is Waldo? Identify three specific guards among the crowd of supposed doppelgangers on the map – and kill them!
  • Bear Trap Triplets: We all know how much Hector loves his little Bianca. One can only imagine what he could do with three of them… why not put it to a test?
  • Best Served Cold: Some poor guy didn’t know who the Baron was and cheated him. The Baron wants him found in a crowded market place and brought to the docks – dead or alive.
  • Rescue Aid Society: Alas! Doc McCoy is being held prisoner in the Bayous. Isabelle’s cat Stella, a dog, and a chicken have formed a special animal commando to rescue the Doc.
