WEST OF DEAD stars the vivid voicework of Ron Perlman (Hellboy, Sons of Anarchy) as the protagonist William Mason, a dead man who awakens in purgatory.
Your path will lead through the procedurally generated maze of the underworld which will change every time you enter. The deeper you get in your run, the more intense the danger will become.
Find your flow and sharpen your reflexes to dodge bullets, slide behind cover and take out undead outlaws and monsters that threaten you while piecing together the mystery of your own past. Think and act fast to catch your enemies by surprise before pandemonium breaks loose. Ignite light to shatter the darkness and thereby stun your enemies.
WEST OF DEAD, created by developer Upstream Arcade and publisher Raw Fury, is releasing on the 18th of June on Xbox One, Xbox Game Pass and PC, coming in August to PlayStation 4 and Switch.

ABOUT UPSTREAM ARCADE
Upstream Arcade is a small team of four veteran Indie developers based in Godalming, UK. They all met while at Lionhead (the studio is a bit of a reunion), and have individually contributed to loads of games including Black and White 2, Max Payne 3, as well as multiple titles in the Fable Franchise. Having left AAA to go Indie, the studio is bound by a desire to use everything they’ve learned toward developing action games with something different to offer. They sure hope that shows in their upcoming game West of Dead.
