Developers WolfEye have revealed the content of update 1.04 for the fantasy RPG western Weird West, which will be released next week. Among other things, the patch will add a perma-death mode and an alternative aiming system.
In the new Nimpossible Mode, only one autosave slot will be available. It is not possible to manually save progress in it, but players will be able to resurrect their character using the found Nimp heads. When heads run out, death will become permanent and the autosave file will be deleted. Especially for this mode, the authors created two new meetings and a secondary task (the beginning of a new mission is in the video below).
Unlike the classic one, the camera control is retained in the alternative aiming system. It can be turned on and off in the settings at any time (you don’t have to start the game again for this). The system is under development and will be added in a test version.
a counter of killed enemies will appear in the “Reputation” tab – this feature will be useful for peaceful passage (in addition, destroyed gluttons (Ravenous) will no longer be taken into account in this statistics); also, for those who want to complete the game without killing, the damage from blunt weapons will be adjusted to eliminate the possibility of accidentally killing the enemy when attacking too quickly; a high level of slowdown when aiming will become available; Many bugs will be fixed, including those related to freezes, the disappearance of the horse and items from the saddlebags, the inability to start a dialogue with ghosts, AI errors, interface and animations.
Update 1.04 will be released on all platforms on September 13th.
The previous major patch, 1.03 (The Miners and the Restless), was released in June and introduced a new character development system with the transfer of weapon skills between different heroes, locations with mines, advanced aiming settings (including the mentioned slowdown), support for 60 frames / s for Xbox Series S and much more.
Weird West was released March 31, 2022 on PC (Steam, GOG, Epic Games Store), PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and simultaneously appeared in the Xbox Game Pass subscription. Users of the Valve site left more than 1600 reviews, based on which the game has a rating of 73%. In a review for 3DNews, Mikhail Ponomarev rated the Western 8 out of 10.
