Desperados 3 is easily one of the best games we’ve seen at Gamescom 2019, introducing Isabelle Moreau and her mind control darts and pet cat. She’s like Dishonored 2’s Emily meets, well, cat lady, and can do some awesome tricks. As you’ll see in this exclusive Desperados 3 gameplay. Enjoy! Thanks to Logitech G and the G432 7.1 Surround Sound gaming headset for sponsoring this video. Check out the tech behind the G432 over on the Logitech G site:
In this Desperados III gameplay you’ll see Isabelle Moreau attempt to save the rest of the gang using a cat distract guards, mind control darts and the ability to connect any two living things together to share the same fate – aka Dishonored 2’s Domino ability. As you’ll see in the Desperados 3 demo, she’s basically unstoppable, and you’ll see the many different ways the skills can be combined to wipe out bandits in the old west. Also in these Desperados impressions you’ll see the new Showdown mode, which lets you freeze the action and plan a simultaneous attack between multiple heroes. It’s very tasty.
Desperados III comes from the creators of the outstanding real-time tactics game Shadow Tactics, so you’ll recognise several of the ideas and interface tricks from that. If you want a more basic understanding of the game why not check out our coverage from last year’s Gamescom when we talked you through the 8 Desperados 3 features’s you’ll love.
