A heroic adventure to complete
Meet Jesse Rentier, the young and skilled vampire slayer you’ll play in Evil West. Star agent of the Rentier Institute, a secret monster-hunting organization run by his father and many generations of Rentier before him, he will have to spring into action on his own once a deadly vampire conspiracy emerges from the darkness to wipe out the Institute. With the help of Edgar Gravenor, another survivor of the Rentier Institute, he will have to fight against fierce enemies and demystify the conspiracy, while he rebuilds the organization and becomes the leader he needs.
A well-equipped gunslinger who takes down monstrosities with deadly style
To achieve his goal, Jesse will explore every corner of the Wild West, searching for new members of the Institute and valuable clues about the conspiracy, extracting money from chests and abandoned corpses, and growing his arsenal of weapons all the time. Armed with old-fashioned firearms and high-tech weapons like the Rentier Gauntlet, mix and match Jesse’s weapons and tools to your liking, each with their own skill tree for custom upgrades. He then engages in explosive combat encounters with your own mix of powerful ranged attacks and devastating melee combos.

§ Evolve with upgradeable upgrades, tools and weapons.
§ Explore and fight through a richly narrative campaign to save North America.
§ Sanguisuge monsters. From vampires that hide in plain sight to bloodthirsty monsters that swoop in, the Sanguisuge, long hidden in the shadows, are becoming a top-tier threat to humanity. Among these monsters are the Nagals, which are adept at ambushing and capable of quick melee attacks; the Boo-Hag, who cannot grow their own skin and intellectual abilities; the Leechers, huge enemies that charge into the fray brandishing a huge spiked shield that protects them from frontal attacks; and the Highborns, who are the most powerful Sanguisuge species.
§ Unusual threats require unusual tools. If conventional weapons can defeat most enemies, the Rentier Institute has deployed a feat of engineering to develop powerful tools capable of facing any situation. Select your weaponry from a wide selection of weapons and tools to decimate the vampire army. The Gauntlet, a true example of the Rentier Institute, offering solid defense and an upper hand in a fight; the Revolver RI is handy, fast and reliable; Rifle, when you need your perfect long-range precision weapon; the Scorcher one of the IR’s less sophisticated weapons that belches flames on unsuspecting enemies.
§ The American frontier reimagined. Myths, legends and historical episodes told again in a unique and twisted universe of the Old West. In a world corrupted by supernatural forces, hunting prey in deep canyons, abandoned towns, old sawmills and gold mines full of dark secrets.
