Hello, Xbox Game Pass members!
We are excited and eager to let you play weird west and hope you will enjoy the many things the game has to offer.
We’ve been working really hard on this baby for years with a small team of passionate experts in the immersive sim genre. Before Executive Producer Julien and I, our passion started with being a fan of Ultimate 7 and Ultima Underworld when we were kids; the immersive and simulation values we experienced then as fascinated children have stayed with us to this day and have forged our drive ever since.
I founded Arkane Studios in ’99. Julien joined me shortly afterwards and was a key member behind Arx Fatalis† Dark Messiahall the way to dishonored† weird west is our first attempt at an immersive sim from above. It’s a genre that hasn’t been tried much as immersive sims are traditionally first person, but we believe the values translate well to the top-down angle, and it brings that comfy nostalgic Ultima vibe that transports us back to our childhood .
Because that’s ultimately why we do the games we do; we want to give to the new generations what we were given as children: the gift of immersion. A world where players allow themselves to be whoever they want and invest emotionally in the characters they meet and the places they explore.
Welcome at the weird west – we hope you enjoy your stay.
