Publisher, SOEDESCO have announced that the digital and boxed edition of 3D action adventure World to the West will be available worldwide on Xbox One. This is Rain Games’ second offering after the successful release of puzzler, Teslagrad.

This new title, World to the West, is a pulpy, cartoony, top down action adventure inspired by European adventure comics. The player takes control of four unique characters, each with their own motivations, skills and interweaving storylines, as they seek to escape the dark shadow of an ancient prophecy. You will travel through corrupt colonies, lush jungles and frozen tundras as they snoop through the secrets of a forgotten civilisation.

Players can choose from four playable heroes and swap them out in game. Each character has their own unique story, heritage, abilities and playstyle. By picking a certain character, they can fight or avoid enemies, or even try to persuade them to see things their way.

As the heroes hail from different nations they all possess individual abilities with which to explore the vibrant world, filled with characters who have their own helpful and, not-so-helpful agendas. Experience seamless transitions between combat and puzzle solving which really should keep you on your toes.

Face your enemies head on with brute force, convince them to see things your way or simply avoid them altogether. How you face the problem of your foes is entirely up to you. Exploration is the key to World to the West, snoop here, there and everywhere in order to uncover secrets, all set in the Teslagrad universe where you’ll encounter some familiar and not-so familiar faces.

World to the West will see a worldwide digital and retail release on the 5th of May.
