Desperados 3 Release Date Confirmed for PC, PS4, and Xbox One
Fans have been waiting 13 years for another entry in the Desperados series. However, they won't have to wait much longer to play Desperados 3. The game is set to release for PC, PS4, and Xbox One on June 16.
The news comes from developer Mimimi Games and developer THQ Nordic (via IGN). It's the first official news we've gotten on the game since the Desperados 3 collector's edition was announced last week. Before that, both Mimimi Games and THQ Nordic had been relatively silent about the Wild West tactics game since mid-February.
Indeed, we still don't know a whole lot about Desperados 3. The game was first revealed way back in 2018, and it made our most anticipated strategy games of 2019 list, though it failed to appear that year.
However, we do know that Doc McCoy makes a return and that the game is the prequel to the first game in the franchise, Desperados: Wanted Dead or Alive. According to Jonathan Riedler, the game's producer, it is also somewhat of a reboot for the series, though it's not entirely clear to what extent.
Earlier this year, we were able to go hands-on with a preview build of Desperados 3, saying "Desperados 3 is shaping up to be a great entry in an underrepresented genre."
Desperados 3 is currently up for pre-order at various retailers, including Amazon and Best Buy. The Standard Edition for PS4 and Xbox One is currently $59.99, while the Standard Edition for PC via Steam is $49.99.
Those who pick the game up through Steam can also upgrade to the Digital Deluxe Edition for free. That edition of Desperados 3 includes the season pass and three DLCs, as well as the game's original soundtrack.
The $119 Collector's Edition is only available on the PS4 and Xbox One. It includes five, 6-inch Desperados 3 gold figures, the season pass + three DLCs, an official artbook, and much more.
