A new Weird West update is now live on all platforms, introducing new content and plenty of gameplay tweaks for a better experience.
The new free 1.03 update, The Miners and the Restless update, adds new Mine locations to the game, as well as plenty of gameplay tweaks, such as additional aiming system options, additional stats, and loot variations for weapons, and more.
Aside from a healthy dose of bug fixing, this new update adds some brand new Mine locations to the game to keep exploration and bounty hunting fresh. To help with exploring those mine sites, some additional aiming system options are now available and all weapons have also received a facelift with additional stats and loot variations.
The new Weird West update also revises the game progression system, allowing players to carry Acquired Weapon Abilities between Journey Heroes and more. Companions AI has also been improved, and the game now runs at 60 FPS on Xbox Series S as well.
The game progression system has been also fully revised – with acquired Weapon Abilities now carrying between Journey Heroes – and the game economy received a full balancing pass to go with all this, under the benevolent eyes of the Wanderers, from their brand new outpost location, where Nimp Relics can now be purchased! Not mentioning Companions AI received a lot of love.. oh.. and if you want to keep track of all this mayhem, we are also throwing in a new “Reputation” tab in your journal to keep tabs on your Friends for Life and Vendettas! Finally, console players should be delighted to know the game now runs at 60Fps on Xbox Series S too! Check-out the patch trailer video and more in-depth details below.
Weird West is now available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Learn more about the game by checking out my review.
With its gripping story, wacky characters, solid action role-playing game mechanics, and masterfully crafted immersive simulation features, Weird West is one of the very few role-playing games on the market where players truly shape the world with their choices and actions. Some balancing and technical issues damage the experience, but if you’re looking for a truly immersive RPG to play, you won’t find anything better than Weird West.
