weird west When patch 1.04 is released, players will get new features, one of which is a perma-death mode.
Known as Nimpossible mode, it cannot be saved manually. Instead, the game automatically saves your progress, and you can only play and reload from that dedicated autosave slot.
The Nimp Heads you find during your journey will allow you to resurrect, but once you leave the Nimp Heads, the death will be permanent and the autosave file will be deleted.
Nimpossible mode comes with some extras that are only available in that mode. The content will support legends about the resurrection process and deals made with wanderers. This includes two new travel encounters and a side quest that will be unlocked through your Nimpossible game.
With the patch, the developers are also experimenting with a new alternative targeting system. The system differs from the classic twin stick shooter model, which retains camera control while aiming. This new system can be turned on or off at any time.
Other things coming with patch 1.04 include tracking your human kill counts, blunt weapons have been adjusted to hit locations where attacking too fast won’t cause you to inadvertently kill your target, and a higher-level slow-motion SloMo simultaneous aim option has also been added.
Weird West is developed by WolfEye Studios, a team made up of former Arkane Studios developers, and features a simulated sandbox world set in a dark fantasy reimagining of the Wild West.
In it, you will travel through the stories of an unusual group of heroes and become legends for the decisions you make. Each character has its own origin story, and you’ll move from one character to the next until all come together in the final chapter.
Each game is unique and tailored to your actions, as everything counts, and characters, factions and even locations will react to your choices.
You can even form a team or go it alone and play by your own rules based on your specific motivations.
Weird West is available for PC, PlayStation and Xbox consoles.
