Desperados 3 Gameplay Trailer Teases Tactical Wild West Combat

Doc offers some unpleasant medicine in Desperados 3 the newest Desperados 3 gameplay trailer.

It’s official pardner: Desperados 3 is coming back for another round of real-time tactics later this year. THQ Nordic just released a character trailer for Doc McCoy, a gun-slinging alchemist returning from the previous title, Desperados 2. The sequel was announced way back in 2018.

The newest trailer for the Wild West strategy game shows off a good bit of gameplay, highlighting what we can expect from McCoy and the game in general. Developer Mimimi Games says the Civil War veteran isn’t someone to mess around with. 

He fought and worked as a doctor alike, but could not stand the horror and the futility of the war, so he deserted after a year of service and became a gun for hire. Nowadays he’s known in certain circles as someone who gets the job done and doesn’t ask too many questions.

The good, ol’ Doc is just one of five desperados you can control in Desperados 3, who all approach scenarios from different angles and have both lethal and non-lethal solutions for any given level. The three other desperados haven’t yet been revealed, but their reveals should be on the horizon — if we had to guess.

While a firm release date hasn’t been announced yet, Desperados 3 is expected to launch this summer for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more news on Desperados 3 as it exits the badlands.
