A shot is heard from the shadows, the smoke clears, and the infamous John Cooper himself announces: the highly anticipated Desperados III from Mimimi Games has a release date! On June 16th, 2020, Desperados III will be available on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

Synopsis: Desperados III is the prequel to widely loved Desperados: Wanted Dead or Alive. In this strategic game, the acclaimed gunslinger John Cooper will team up with four different characters on a journey to earn redemption. Their adventures will take them throughout all sorts of different terrains, including a final Wild West showdown. Each individual in this diverse team has their own skill set, setting up each fight using unique strategies; perfect for a tactical stealth game, where players will have to conceive a plan in order to progress.

Some key features about Desperados III from the developers:

  • Play five unique characters, each with a very particular set of skills
  • Experience true freedom of choice with countless different ways to overcome any obstacles
  • Defeat large groups of enemies with careful planning and execution
  • Witness the glory of classic Wild West scenarios like frontier towns, mysterious swamps, sprawling modern cities, and many more
  • Choose between non-lethal and deadly attacks, stealth and blazing guns
  • Adjust the game to your playstyle with various difficulty settings and special replay challenges
  • The Showdown mode allows you to pause the game anytime and react to ambushes or surprise attacks

The first thing that really strikes a viewer of this trailer is the amazing use of verticality in this game. It gives a real feel of full exploration and adds so many opportunities for different approaches to each attack. The graphics are smooth, and the precise details really tie everything together. One of the best moments in the trailer is when the lyrics of the music sing “I’m gonna rock you,” just as John Cooper is rolling boulders off of cliffs in an offensive onslaught.
