Tactical cowboy action-adventure Desperados III launches June 16th

Red Dead Tactical Redemption

THQ Nordic has formally revealed Desperados III. The real-time tactical action game set in the Wild West is set to launch June 16th for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Check out the announcement trailer below!

The Desperados series is one of the older series that made a name for itself in the early 2000s. With its entertaining blend of tactical action set in the Wild West, the series received several entries. But with its most recent game being 13 years old now, the series stayed dormant for the entirety of the past decade.

Combine your team’s special skills to overcome each tough challenge in your own style.

Play five unique characters, each with a very particular set of skills
Experience true freedom of choice with countless different ways to overcome any obstacle
Defeat large groups of enemies with careful planning and execution
Witness the glory of classic Wild West scenarios like frontier towns, mysterious swamps, sprawling modern cities, and many more
Choose between non-lethal and deadly attacks, stealth and blazing guns
Adjust the game to your playstyle with various difficulty settings and special replay challenges
The Showdown mode allows you to pause the game anytime and react to ambushes or surprise attacks

This is soon changing with Desperados III. The long-awaited sequel is launching in just a few weeks, in June. And unlike the PC centric past titles, this time console players will also be able to join the fun. Handled by Mimimi Games who have proven their expertise in the real-time tactical genre with the excellent Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun, Desperados III looks to bring back the veneered PC franchise into the spotlight.

Besides the funny trailer above we also got a gameplay trailer that showcases the various game classes and gameplay in action. Make sure to watch it!
