The Wild West Awaits on Tabletop and Screen in DESPERADOS III

The Wild West gets even wilder in newly released Desperados III! The tactical stealth role-playing game for consoles and PC puts an Old West gang at your command as you make your mark on the untamed wilderness. Not only will you love the video game, the videogame publisher THQ Nordic joined forces with the RPG-experts of Pegasus Spiele to create a free tabletop RPG to accompany Desperados III, so you’ll be effortlessly living and breathing the Wild West—but your characters might not be so lucky.

The real-time, story-driven video game follows gunslinger John Cooper and his cohorts Kate O’Hara, Doc McCoy, Hector Mendoza, and Isabelle Moreau as they take on anything the ruthless Wild West throws at them.

And there is a lot that can be thrown at them, including outlaws, bandits, and guard dogs, just to name a few. It will take brains to survive—if you rush in blindly, you’ll be spotted, and reinforcements quickly rush in. Stealth is the name of the game. Use crowd control, blind spots, traps, the environment, and more to take control of the situation. If you can do all of this, the gang just might make it out alive.

Don’t worry if you aren’t quite as quick on the draw in real life. Showdown mode gives you the opportunity to pause the action to plan every move and coordinate simultaneous action. If that’s the type of gameplay that appeals to you, you might also enjoy the Desperados pen and paper game! It’s free to download, and all you need is the rulebook and six-sided dice to play.

Desperados, the pen and paper game, was designed by the RPG experts of Pegasus Spiele together with THQ Nordic to make it an authentic Desperados experience. It includes character sheets, rules for character creation and play, and even a free adventure to start your first game session with friends right away. Play online or in person, and your imagination will transport you to the dust-filled air of the land-of-opportunity.

Desperados III is available now worldwide on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The Digital Deluxe Edition contains the full game, the official soundtrack, and the Season Pass with 3 DLCs, so the fun just keeps coming.
