Desperados III, slated to hit PC, PS4, and Xbox One this summer, is billed as a tactical stealth game, but it does allow gamers to choose how they want to approach missions so let’s be honest there’s going to be a whole lot of mayhem in most people’s games…
You’re provided with five characters, each with a unique skill set, so those looking to be a little more…shall we say aggressive?…in their approach can choose characters that suit that style of play. The latest revealed is Doc McCoy, who leans more toward stealthy sniper action, but certainly seems capable of handling himself when things get loud as well.
Desperados III looks like a different take on the increasingly popular Western genre, and it’s by Mimimi Games, who developed the excellent Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun, so I’m all over that when it arrives later this year.
Here’s the press release:
Someone call for a Doctor? Legendary bounty hunter McCoy is back for Desperados III
McCoy spent his younger years studying medicine in England. When he finished his studies, he was looking for an adventure and oh boy, he found one. He set sail to the new world, crossed the Atlantic, and set foot on the American shore. There, he was forcibly recruited to fight in the American Civil War. He fought and worked as a doctor alike, but could not stand the horror and the futility of the war, so he deserted after a year of service and became a gun for hire. Nowadays he’s known in certain circles as someone who gets the job done and doesn’t ask too many questions.
Desperados III will give you it’s real-time tactic medicine on your PC, your PlayStation®4 or your Xbox® One in Summer 2020.
