Hard West 2 is coming, a second round of 2015’s weird western tactics that you may or may not remember fondly for its weird structure and experimental story. Hard West 2 comes out on Steam and drops a reveal trailer, it’s very much like a Hard West sequel, which I think is what you want it to be.
“Hard West 2 is a supernatural journey into the dark heart of the West. With a gun full of lead and a handful of witchcraft, you raise an outlaw troop and hunt the devil to take back what’s yours,” says the official description.
That said, there’s a lot of new interesting stuff going on, the least of which is a really really nice new overworld map and a battle in a train, which always reigns. It is also with a new developer: Ice Code Games. The previous Hard West was created by CreativeForge games. The publisher, Good Shepherd Entertainment, remains the same.
We thought the first game was promising, but the core battles were a bit uninspired, in our 2015 review of Hard West.
