The release date for Evil West is approaching, and it won’t be long before you’re cleaning up the old west in a lot more supernatural fashion than you’ve (probably) ever done before.
Focus Entertainment describes Evil West as a “third-person action game that puts you in the boots of a vampire hunter [who is] rescuing a Wild West eaten by evil,” which seems like a fascinating take on an old pop-culture favorite.

Gameplay and plot details for Evil West
“A sinister threat ravages the American frontier,” a tempting official description of the Evil West narrative informs us. But where does the player fit in?
“As one of the last operatives in a top-secret vampire-hunting institute, you are the last line of defence between mankind and a deep-seated terror that has suddenly emerged from the shadows,” it says.
According to the plot, your character will “become a Wild West Superhero, destroy the vampire danger, and preserve the United States.” It’s all part of the job.
