It’s been a while since this series has been seen, but a new Desperados game was announced today at Gamescom.
Published by THQ Nordic, the game will be developed Mimimi Productions. It is the third iteration of the series, with the last releasing in 2006. The game will be similar in gameplay to Mimimi’s recent release Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogan. It will also be like the original Desperados: Wanted Dead or Alive from 2001.
Desperados (or Desperados III) is a tactics based game set in Western times, with elements of stealth, forward thinking and trial & error. You make your way throughout levels with up to 5 different characters. Each has their own special abilities. Such abilities include laying bear traps for patrolling guards or throwing knives to take out long range enemies silently.
Desperados III will release in 2019 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
