The action and viscerality of Evil West is not touched, but you have to respect who is afraid of spiders.
Just like Obsidian Entertainment’s open world survival game Grounded, Evil West features spiders that can give those in a real panic. people suffering from arachnophobia (irrational fear of spiders). For this reason, this game from Flying Wild Hog and Focus Entertainment has chosen to follow in Obsidian’s footsteps and integrate a mode that removes spiders.
Apparently the spiders from Evil West are closely linked to the magical power that lies beneath the American West where this game from the creators of Shadow Warrior is set, so there will be many, many spiders. Still, the team has gone to great lengths to remove them from the game if you suffer from arachnophobia. It is “an accessibility issue”Said Flying Wild’s Tomasz Gop at Gamescom (via VG247).
Why spiders? Why can’t we follow butterflies?
“There will still be some spider stuff,” Gop clarified. “There will be places where there will be cobwebs, and there will be enemies that have a similar inspiration to that of a spider in their designs”, even one of the game’s bosses would be, in a certain way, inspired by the desEsports Extrasof a spider. Even so, the groups of spiders themselves will disappear completely from the game when activating the option of arachnophobia Part of the fear of spiders comes from those small spiders that go in a group and run helpless everywhere, of which it seems that there will be some accounts in Evil West.
Without a doubt, it is a good accessibility option so that players with arachnophobia can enjoy this proposal. action-shooter set in the American West, but with a twisted, mystical twist. In other recent examples, such as Grounded, Obsidian has come up with a way to not only eliminate spiders, but ridicule them by turning them into little colored balls as if they had been cast with the Ridiculus spell from Harry Potter. Except that in the magician’s tape they put skates on the spider so that it slips.
Having suffered a slight delay previously, Evil West will be released next November 22th for PlayStation 4, PlaySttion 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC consoles.
