Blood West – Let’s Play

Hello friends. This is a Let’s Play video of “Blood West”. Weird west legends meet eldritch horror in Blood West, an immersive stealth FPS. Become the Undead Gunslinger, doomed to roam the barren lands until he manages to purge their curse, freeing his soul. 3 varied scenarios, perk-based character progression, and 20+ hours of gameplay await you!

In “Blood West”, a unique amalgamation of Weird West legends and eldritch horror unfolds, creating an immersive stealth first-person shooter experience. Players assume the role of the Undead Gunslinger, a cursed figure destined to traverse desolate, eerie landscapes. This journey of damnation, not redemption, is set in the Barren Lands—a realm tainted by a malevolent curse, swarming with ghastly monsters and sinister demons. The game promises over 20 hours of gameplay across three distinct, open-ended environments: the Canyons, the Swamp, and the Mountains, each replete with their own horrors and mysteries. Inspired by classics like the Thief series and S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games, “Blood West” rewards a strategic, stealthy approach, challenging players to navigate and clear areas of foes without triggering alarms. The narrative is enriched with vibrant, yet distorted NPCs, each with their own stories and quests, potentially rewarding or perilous based on player interactions. Exploration is key, with hidden treasures and cursed gold dotting the expansive maps. For those preferring confrontation, the game, developed by the creators of POSTAL: Brain Damaged, offers a variety of weapons and intense action. An RPG-like progression system with perks and artifacts allows for deep customization, offering multiple playstyles for the gamers to explore.
