‘Bounty Star’ combines “post-post-apocalyptic” Western action with mechs

This 3D action game promises bounty hunting, farming, and customisable mechs

During Annapurna Interactive’s showcase a new 3D action game called Bounty Star was revealed, and it combines mech combat with farming and base building. 

The over-the-should 3D action game will see players piloting a customisable mech called the Desert Raptor MKII as ex-soldier Clementine KcKinney, a bounty hunter who needs to pursue a number of targets. She’s out in the Red Expanse, a “post-post-apocalyptic” version of the American Southwest.

Developed by Dinogod, the game combines mech combat with farming and base building mechanics as players can customise their mech with different offensive and defensive systems. These include melee weapons, steam powered hydraulic siege weapons, explosive firearms, high-speed thrusters, boosters for dashing, riot shields and more.

As a bounty hunter the player can hunt targets wherever they please, with the customisation letting them take out the target the way they see fit. A run-down garage will serve as the base of operations which can be expanded via water and supply lines, whilst food can be cooked there and ammunition made for combat.

Bounty Star is coming to Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox Game Pass, PS4, PS5 and PC sometime in 2023.
