While there has been something of a resurgence in 'AA' titles over recent years, games like Evil West still don't come around all that often. Schlocky, violent, and just dumb fun, it's a linear action game with a heavy focus on an ever-expanding combat system. It's also got big early 2000s vibes, with characters that have cartoonishly...
Sorry, no Evil West screenshots yet.
Save the world
Happy new year, everyone! The next 12 months will no doubt be stuffed with brilliant new games (just the first quarter is looking nuts), but if you missed some older titles, PS Plus Essential's monthly selection of games will keep you busy. Sony is kicking off 2024 with a strong lineup for January, and the trio is available right now...
Plus or minus?
Okay we'll admit, we came very close to typing '2023' in that headline. But no, your eyes aren't deceiving you — it's time to pass judgment on a whole new year of monthly PS Plus games! And to get us started, January's lineup is made up of three intriguing PS5 and PS4 titles. The headline act has to be the highly rated A Plague...
Hopefully it'll improve
Ah, we've been waiting for this one. The team over at Digital Foundry has put the recently released Evil West to the test on PS5, and the results are a bit disappointing. As was confirmed before the game's release, Evil West has two graphical settings on PS5: a quality mode which boasts 4K resolution at 30 frames-per-second,...
We doubt that Evil West was on many people's must-buy lists at the start of this year, but the unashamedly 'AA' action game has actually made a bit of a splash — at least in hardcore circles. We gave the comically gruesome title a rock solid 7/10 in our Evil West PS5 review, concluding: "Evil West is one of those really enjoyable...
Game's graphical settings revealed
Super promising action-shooter Evil West is out next week on PS5 and PS4, and we're very much looking forward to giving it a go. However, the game's graphical options — particularly on Sony's current-gen console — leave something to be desired. These options were just recently confirmed by publisher Focus Home...
Gloriously gory shooter Evil West has shown off its online co-op mode in a new trailer, and it looks like a good old bit of rootin' tootin' demon shootin' fun. We recently got an overview trailer for the title, which solidified this game as one to keep an eye on. Evil West is set in a vampire-filled twist on the classic old western...
Four minutes of fun
We're once again closing in on the PS5, PS4 release of Evil West after its delay out of September and into November, so developer Flying Wild Hog has returned to remind us what the shooter's all about. We likened it to God of War with guns
PS5 version up for pre-order
Developer Flying Wild Hog has uploaded a second extended gameplay trailer focusing on upcoming title Evil West. Due for release on PS5 and PS4 in November 2022, another 13 minutes of footage can be viewed above. Starting with what looks like a high-quality cutscene, it's not too long before the action kicks into gear...
For further polish
Developer Flying Wild Hog has made the decision to delay its promising third-person shooter Evil West out of its original 20th September 2022 release date and into November. In order to give the studio more time for polishing, the game will now launch for PS5 and PS4 on 22nd November 2022. "We understand that game delays may be...
10 minutes of action-packed footage
If you're growing tired of AAA open world games, Evil West looks like it could be the perfect tonic. A third-person linear action game from publisher Focus Entertainment, it has a similar combat system to God of War, except replace the Leviathan Axe with cowboy weaponry. And then throw vampires into the mix. Out...
