"Wild West Online" Game Details Revealed
According to WCCF Tech, the press release also provided a more detailed overview of what we can expect to find in the game, as well as a bunch of new screenshots.
The player can become an outlaw, deputy or anyone. In the "Wild West Online" players are free to choose their own path.
How they play the game and how they interact with other players is up to them. Based on their actions they will either become a lawman or an outlaw.
If a player becomes too "lawless" a bounty will be placed on their head and it will be open season. Players can also pick a different path such as farming the land, becoming a miner or exploring the world.
The "Wild West Online" features an Intense PvP Combat. Players are much safer in towns since attacking other players is punishable there, but in the wild, there are no laws.
When a player dies, they only lose "quest items" as mined gold, recovered artifacts, and other items required for some quests. All other items remain with the player.
