Western Press shooting onto Xbox One soon

Compete online or locally to find out who has the fastest trigger finger.

In Western Press, duelists will compete in online or local tournaments of up to 16 players or bots, facing each other in rapid-fire, 1v1 sprints to settle the age-old gaming dispute of who can press a random string of ten buttons the fastest.

Playing the game is incredibly simple: randomised buttons appear on the screen in order from top to bottom; press them fast. A duel is measured in a matter of seconds (and hundredths of a second), and a 16 player tournament often takes only a few minutes. So… how good is your competitor’s controller knowledge, and just how fast are their reaction times? The first to complete the string draws iron, the second eats lead.

As you can see from the trailer, duels take place in many different scenarios with a diverse selection of characters, from a priest and a well-dressed lady on a train carriage to a cowboy vs an Indian in front of a camp fire.

Western Press is also available on Steam, having launched in 2016, currently rated positive. The Steam version also allows users to create and share content for the game on the Steam Workshop, such as backdrops and new characters. This version is also cheaper, at £3.99 / €4.99 / $4.99.

Western Press will be launching on Xbox One on the 23rd of March, priced at £6.39 / €7.99 / $7.99.
