Red Dead Redemption 2 Leaked Image Turns Out To Be Wild West Online, A PvP MMO For PC

Recently, an image started floating around the GTA forums, featuring a cowboy that bore some similarity to Red Dead Redemption. Naturally, some people assumed that this was a leaked image from Rockstar’s next project, Red Dead Redemption 2. (Un)fortunately, that’s not the case, but it could be the next best thing for PC gamers.

The game is question is Wild West Online, an open world PvP MMO inspired by the dusty Wild West. It allows the players to form gangs and take sides, to break or defend the laws, indulge in a game of cards at the saloons and much more. The studio behind the game, 612 Games expects to launch a Kickstarter campaign worth $250,000 by the end of the month, with stretch goals corresponding to stretch goals.  According to Stephan Bugaj, the creative Vice President of publisher DJ2, the Red Dead Redemption touch is intentional. He told PCGamer, “There’s an audience for this that just wasn’t being served on PC. So we wanted to make this big, open Wild West world with a bit of a twist that, like the best MMOs, is a place where people can really live in.”

This won’t be just a knock-off of Red Dead Redemption’s multiplayer mode, but will have a seamless open world using server shards where a few hundred players will play together. Players can also play a role in the economy by specializing as gatherers or farmers. “Resource gathering and building camps is going to have more of the social aspects of other MMOs,” Bugaj said.  “There’s going to be story, character, and gameplay-driven motives to keep playing, but we haven’t yet fully worked out what the progression system is going to be for that.”
