If you haven’t heard about Desperados III yet, you really should pay attention to it, as this stealth tactics game is shaping up to be something special indeed. It has been 14 years since the last one, but as one of the many IPs that THQ Nordic has picked up over the last couple of years, this new one will finally land on June 16.
Desperados III is a story-driven, hardcore tactical stealth game, set in a ruthless Wild West scenario. In this long-awaited prequel to the beloved classic Desperados: Wanted Dead or Alive, John Cooper will join forces with the runaway bride Kate, the shady hitman Doc McCoy, the giant trapper Hector, and Isabelle, a mysterious lady from New Orleans. On Cooper’s quest for redemption, his adventures lead him and his gang from rural towns, over swamps and riverbanks, and finally to a dramatic showdown worthy of Wild West legends.
