Hold Yer Horses: Hard West Pushed Back to November 18th M. Joshua Cauller October 30, 2015 Archives Hard West, the dark and foreboding Wild West game that hangs on XCOM’s britches, pulled in its reigns from its original November 4th release date. It’s holding its horses until November 18th in order to focus on some refinements. As the holdup video says, “Is two weeks a long time? It sure is if you’re waiting for a refill at the saloon. But compared to eternal damnation, it’s nothing… Hard West will ride into town guns blazing on November 18th.” The team over at CreativeForge Games even gave us a dandy gameplay video to tide us over. I don’t mind the wait. I’ve played the game and I see that there’s some great tactics like ricochet shots, hold-ups, and an entire approach phase pre-shoot-out. A little time for maturation ain’t hurting nobody.
