About Desperados III

Desperados III is a story-driven, hardcore tactical stealth game, set in a ruthless Wild West scenario.

On Cooper’s quest for redemption, his adventures lead him and his gang from rural towns, over swamps and riverbanks, and finally to a dramatic showdown worthy of Wild West legends.
