What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“**Warning Bugs** please understand there will be bugs and bots while we finish building in the spawn systems, thank you for your patience and understanding. My core idea is to provide a balanced, fast PvP experience for everyone. I choose early access to gather player feedback and to make the game more balanced and competitive for all players. As we build on our project we look for new and innovative approaches to keep the action fast, and the encounters unpredictable. How can I make it better?”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“This game should be in Early Access no longer than a year or two. Plans for expansion include: more weapons, more maps, and horses to find in the wild.

Other elements of our game we are building include: modern UI, currency accumulation systems (gold nuggets), re-developing the current ranking systems, in game character unlocks.

More features to be determined as we develop!”

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

“The full version is planned to be different that the Early Access as a more polished game with working currency and quests that players can complete to unlock different Wild West Characters.

The full release may include (top secret) as a shield more weapons including the bow and arrow, dual wielding revolvers, and the classic repeater rifle!

The full version plans to have wild horses that users can jump on to traverse the map faster to discover other players and loot.

To earn currency in the full version players will have to win to accumulate Gold Nuggets. Players will be able to collect Gold Nuggets from players they eliminate but to save them all you must win the game.

We have plans to added an assortment of Wild Western dances, emotes, and fun quips that players can use to taunt or celebrate with.

We have other game modes programmed into our system and we plan to implement a Death Match, Team Death Match, and Capture the Point play modes and allow players to vote on what game mode they prefer to play next!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current state of Early Access is working and the game play feels smooth! This stable build works well on all servers across the world and lets you take a ride and play a game. The game is now in a fun playable form and we invite players to give feedback on what they like and what can make it better! There are several weapons that have been balanced and tested so lock and load.

With the key PvP components feeling good and the graphics looking excellent we are very much looking forward to catching the train with you!

The current state of the Early Access version includes:
Old Rickety Steam Train
Western Weapons, Medicine, and TnT
Completed Map and Game Mechanics
A few random Cowboy Characters
Game Stats and Steam Profile Integration”

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

“No, I hope to bring games free to play for everyone.”

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

“The community and my friends have helped me build this project to be a competitive and ultra fast paced play style. Community and workshop resources will be exciting to watch grow as we build and create a plethora of new ideas and game play features. Every one is welcome to play Best in the West for FREE!”
