Millions of gamers are anticipating the release of Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption 2, the sequel to the popular open world Western game. It won’t be out until spring of 2018, but in the meantime, another Western game has been on the radar called Wild West Online. As you can guess from the title, it will be taking players to an MMO Western world.

Today a gameplay trailer has been released, and it gives a taste of the character creation, card game activities, horseback riding, bounty hunting, combat, fast traveling, and more. Check it out below.

One very important thing to note is that the comments are disabled and the like/dislike bar is hidden. Are people disliking the video by the thousands and leaving negative feedback? The video does note that this is a pre-alpha version of the game. But let’s hope that it will shape up nicely once it’s released.

The game has gotten a lot of gamers excited because of the MMO and Western aspect. However, it has been getting negative buzz due to having a link to Sergey Titov. Why is that a bad thing? He’s the man behind the controversial game, The War Z, which was panned by critics and gamers.

Wild West Online developer 612 Games has told Massively OP that Titov has no involvement with the game.

“Yes, we are using the Nightshade game engine from Free Reign Entertainment. However, 612 Games is neither a subsidiary of Free Reign, nor financed by Free Reign or Sergey Titov. The team is focused on making a great game that will speak for itself, and now that we’ve addressed this topic we are going to return our focus to the game itself. Thank you for your continued support.”

The game can be pre-ordered for closed alpha and beta at https://www.playwwo.com/.

Synopsis: Wild West Online is an open-world action-based, online multiplayer game in which players are free to explore and interact within a thrilling Wild West setting. Based on their decisions and actions, players can become a lawman, an outlaw or a pioneer exploring the Western Frontier. The game features a bevy of content, including world exploration, resource gathering, PvP combat, PvE game missions, treasure hunts and much more.

Wild West Online doesn’t have an actual release date yet, but it will be releasing in 2017.
