    Yesterday a leaked image started circulating on a Grand Theft Auto forum showing a cowboy that looked an awful lot like John Marston from Red Dead Redemption. Unlike what many assumed, this wasn't Red Dead Redemption 2, but it could be a PC gamer's best chance to eke out a living on the frontier. Wild West Online is an open-world PvP MMO that wears its inspirations on its dusty, sun-bleached sleeves. Players will form gangs to either break or defend the law, roam the hinterlands, or settle in for a game of cards at the local saloon. In PC Gamer's exclusive reveal, I sat down with Stephan Bugaj creative vice president of publisher DJ2, to find out more.

    The creators of Wild West Online expect to launch a $250,000 Kickstarter at the end of the month, with stretch goals tied to additional funding. The team is already working a core version of the game, which they anticipate will arrive later this year regardless. The Kickstarter is simply meant to secure extra funding to expand its features. Wild West Online takes plenty of cues from Red Dead Redemption's excellent online mode only with one major difference: It's an MMO. No, this won't be the typical routine of questing and grinding levels, but a seamless open world using server shards where a few hundred players will coexist together or die trying.

    I think this would be great!!
    I still don't understand why they wont release Red Dead for P.C. though.
    They would cash in big time on that!!

    I was a little shocked to see that RD 2 is console only.

    There is petition to get the game on PC. There are about 56K signatures but no response yet from Rockstar.

    I've been watching the updates on this game .. it might be one of the few PvP MMOs I would consider playing.

    I have seen a few videos of the gameplay in the last few weeks, and it looks promising. Of course I tend to be quite cynical of most MMOs these days as they seem more P2W than game now.
