What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Sunset Rangers will provide a good western experience, and since it's being developed by a very small indie team, the idea is to use the Early Access system to get feedback, suggestions and bug reports from you, the player. At the same time, we work hard to fix bugs and issues quickly and we try to keep a close relationship with the players, being always present in the discussions page.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“It'll be released as soon as it is polished enough to be deemed a finished product.”

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

“The plan is to improve and add questlines, improve NPCs AI and improve the overall experience.

The current build is deemed "Feature Complete", which means we won't add new major features.
From now on we will balance the game, add more questlines, fix bugs, improve the performance, add more content.

But you say you won't add features but will add content? Yes, we'll add items, objects to be build in your base, questlines, etc. But we won't add a whole new feature.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is already Feature Complete, though is still needs testing, balance, bugfixing and performance improvements.

The current features are:
- Random world building with different biomes (desert, dunes, canyons, grasslands), vegetation, cities, forts, abandoned buildings
- Base Building
- Factions, you can ally yourself with different factions
- Reputation, using a Karma system, you can become the Sheriff in the server or the Most Wanted
- Horses, buy a horse in your base and have a mount available anytime
- Questlines
- Random revolvers and rifles, each time you find a gun it's built from random different parts
- Unique (more powerful) guns
- Lots of different ammunition
- 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.”

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.”

Changelog for update Alpha 0.16a [Bugfixes] [Performance]

All should be ready mid-October.

  • Added new events where a group of union soldiers try to take a confederate fort and vice-versa.

  • Sensibly reduced the amount ot Karma lost when killing union/confederate soldiers.
  • Sensibly increased the view distance of base building structures.

  • Fixed bug causing eventual crashes when switching the lamp on/off

About This Game

Welcome to the Wild West where your life is always at the point of a gun! You will be 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 Western Sandbox in a random open world, with crafting mechanic, base building, questlines and lots of different guns.
