Vienna, Austria/ Munich, Germany, February 19th, 2020:
THQ Nordic and Mimimi Games are today very happy to unveile that they have just released some new information and announced a brand-new character for their upcoming story driven hardcore tactical stealth game “Desperados III”.
Need a gun for hire? Ask for Doc McCoy, a ruthless sharpshooter and veteran field medic, he’ll get the job done. With his custom made Colt Buntline Special, he can shoot the wings off a fly – or an opponent from far away. He also can give an enemy special treatment with his syringe…
McCoy spent his younger years studying medicine in England. When he finished his studies, he was looking for an adventure and oh boy, he found one. He set sail to the new world, crossed the Atlantic, and set foot on the American shore.
There, he was forcibly recruited to fight in the American Civil War. He fought and worked as a doctor alike, but could not stand the horror and the futility of the war, so he deserted after a year of service and became a gun for hire. Nowadays he’s known in certain circles as someone who gets the job done and doesn’t ask too many questions.
Desperados III will give you it’s real-time tactic medicine on your PC, your PlayStation®4 or your Xbox® One in Summer 2020.
