What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Sunset Rangers is an ambitious project, we want to provide a good western experience and we're a small indie team. So we need to launch it in Early Access because we need help from players around the world to test, balance and add stuff to the game before releasing it as a finished product.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We don't know, but we plan on removing it from the Early Access as soon as it has all major features in and is polished enough to be deemed a finished product.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We plan on adding the following features:
- Basebuilding
- Rifles (random and uniques)
- New ammo types
- More wildlife and NPCs
- Duel mechanics
- More character customization (skins).

We are also open to suggestions, we want help from the audience to decide where we should go next with the game.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Features already present:
- Random world building with different biomes (desert, dunes, canyons, grasslands), vegetation, cities, forts, abandoned buildings
- Random revolvers, each time you find a revolver it's built from random different parts
- Unique (more powerful) revolvers with unique abilities
- Lots of different ammunitions
- Events and PvE: Lots of loots scattered around the world and lots of enemies to kill.
- Survival: Keep everything in check: food satiety, hydration, temperature, while running around in the desert
- Permadeath (with a twist), each player have a stash that he can bury anywhere in the world, if you die, you lose everything, except what's in your stash, but choose carefully where to bury it, because other players can steal your items if they find your stash.
- Different classes giving a different set of starting equipments
- Lots of clothings and equipments
- Friendship mechanic, add your friends, track them in the world, unite and conquer the west!”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We will increase the price as the game gets closer to a final version, eventually reaching the full price intented for the finished product. We decided to price it this way to encourage people to get onboard and help us develop this game early on.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We will collect bug reports, crash reports, suggestions and opinions and use them to polish the game, decide what to add next and properly balance the game.”

About This Game

Welcome to the Wild West where your life is always at the point of a gun! You will be living surviving, trading and exploring a remote land with arid deserts, mazes of canyons and disputed towns. You can team up with your friends or try solo against the elements, other players and enemies.

Sunset Rangers is a Sandbox in a random open world, with random events (from a simple hidden barrel to a giant worm that requires dozens of players to kill). In this dangerous world, you will need powerful guns, which are random too. And there’ll be various ways to get your guns: crafting, killing NPCs, buying or hunting players down.

  • Randomly generated maps with different Cities connected with roads, Random Events and multiple biomes like Deserts, Dunes, Canyons, Plateaus and Grasslands.
  • Randomly generated guns with different types of barrels, chambers, blocks and grips.
  • Unique guns with special abilities and randomly generated bullets to shoot with your guns.
  • Events and PvE - Find valuable loot anywhere in the world: inside safes, barrels, dropped by bandits, soldiers, wildlife and monsters.
  • Survive - You’ll need to find food and water while maintaining your temperature in deserts, canyons and other arid lands.
  • Create your own server supporting dozens of players, choose between different map sizes and seeds.
  • If you die, not everything is lost, you can hide valuable items in your stash and bury it in the world. But you’ll have to be cautious where you bury it, because other players can find it and stole your goods!
  • Start the game as a Gunslinger, Blacksmith, Civilian and others classes.
  • Craft guns, clothings, equipments and others items for you.
  • Loot or craft clothings, dress yourself as a Bandit, a Cowboy or a Civil War Soldier.
  • Clean Interface - Open only what you want and place the window where you want, like an interface should be.
  • Wanted - Killing is not free of charges, you will be marked as a Bandit and if you are the biggest killer in the server, you will be the Most Wanted.
  • Friend List - Add your friends to your friend list and play together to conquer the Wild West.

These are the main feature that will be in the Alpha version, but wait, there’s more!

We already have a basic planning of how the Sunset Rangers will develop, but we are open to suggestions from players to help us decide how the game should be, leave them in the forums. This the list of features and content that are already in development, planned or only as an ideia for the game:

  • Basebuilding - This is the main feature we want to add after hearing the feedback you guys gave us.
  • Rifles randomly generated with various combinations of different parts.
  • Unique Rifles with special abilities.
  • Different kinds of ammunition.
  • More revolver parts and Unique revolvers.
  • Forts - The player will be able to capture a fort from NPCs and use it as a base or headquarter.
  • Translation various languages(Chinese, Russian and others are planned).
  • More Clothings and NPCs in general, like bosses, natives, traders and civilians.
  • Duel - Invite a fool to a duel, betting items or your life;
  • Alternate playable characters - Choose between different character skins.

We will be reading the forum nearly every day, we are really open to suggestions and we will take the directions the community think is better. All the Roadmap can be changed if needed.
