The latest Release Date trailer showcases some of the human and supernatural enemies players will encounter while exploring the Dark Heart of the Wild West. These include the curse-casting Shadow Blackeart and the toxin-barfing Demon Hellspawn that can take down an unsuspecting group of people.

The game also features a score by BAFTA Award-winning Jason Graves (Dead Space, Tomb Raider) and a story co-written by Origins Awards winner and New York Times bestselling author Matt Forbeck (Deadlands).

The Good, the Bad, and the Undead

The Folktales of the West collide with the occult. The darkness is crawling with as many demons as you have bullets to spare.

Conquer the Dark Frontier

Explore the deepest parts of the Wild West in a desperate bid to save your soul from the grasp of a gamble-happy demon. Wander around snow-covered peaks to dust-covered sun-baked valleys, and learn more about yourself and your posse.

Show Your Bravado

Pile up the kills to charge up your Bravado. Doing so replenishes your Action Points, allowing you to perform chain kills. Chain together kills of multiple foes to keep the streak going and build up your reputation as a legendary gunslinger.

Supercharged Posse

Explore the land to uncover a deck of mysterious cards that will grant your characters certain perks. Build up proper poker hands to get better perks but you’ll need to unlock them through higher trust levels. Kit your “friends” with better guns, explosives trinkets, or just give them a can of beans and a bottle of whiskey to keep their shooting accurately.

Unnatural Leader

The burden of responsibility rests on you as the leader. Order others around and ask them to perform tasks that’ll either gain their loyalty or make them question you as a leader. Choose carefully to get the maximum amount of loyalty. Poor choices will strain the resolve of the others to the cause.

Shootouts on the Move

This may be a turn-based game but entire fights take place in dynamically shifting environments. Take part in thrilling chases on horseback as well as anything that’ll force you to keep moving. Keep up with constantly changing win conditions under pressure and steal victory away as any resourceful thief would.

Hard West 2 is available to wishlist on Steam right now. For more information on the game, check out the game’s official website.
