Beta sign ups are now live for Desperados 3, the third instalment of the classic Wild West real-time tactics game where you control a gang of gunslinging outlaws.
For those unaware, the original two Desperados games were released in the 00s and were a Commandos: Behind Enemy Lines-esque real-time tactics games set in the Wild West. The last release was Desperados 2: Cooper’s Revenge back in 2006, but now THQ Nordic is reviving the franchise with Desperados 3.
In Desperados 3 you’ll be able to take command of up to five unique desperados and use their lethal skills and stealth to infiltrate and assassinate their way through a diverse set of missions. Missions promise to have a large variety of different solutions and paths, and you’ll be able to use a mixture of lethal and non-lethal options to deal with your enemies.
It’s been a long time coming, but the wait for Desperados 3 looks set to be worth it. The artwork and animation looks fantastic, and it was even nominated for the official game critics awards Best Strategy Game of E3 (though it lost out to Mike Bithel’s John Wick). The Beta is due to take place between Tuesday, July 9th and Sunday, July 21st, spaces are limited though so sign up soon to be quick on the draw and sign up now!
