Paradox Explores The Wild Console Frontier With Lead And Gold

Traditionally a PC game publisher, Paradox Interactive dons a cowboy hat and a pair of six-guns, moseying onto the console scene with Fatshark's Lead and Gold: Gangs of the Wild West, and we've got pictures to prove it.

Lead and Gold first popped up in October, when developer Fatshark chummed the publishing waters with a video of the game in action. Europa Universalis developer Paradox Interactive took the bait, with the game's Q1 2010 release marking the company's debut on consoles, downloadable or otherwise.

"We've said all along that for the right title, we'd jump on the opportunity of going console and when Lead and Gold crossed our path, there was no turning back. The team over at Fatshark is very experienced and has done an excellent job," said Fredrik Wester, CEO of Paradox Interactive. "There's ample opportunity to roll this out on several different platforms, including PC."

Every passing moment we get closer and closer to the day when we'll be saying, "Oh great, another cowboy game." I can almost taste it!


    I wounder how well this would go on PC, considering it looks a hell of a lot like TF2..... Things could get interesting.

      Yeah, very strong TF2 vibe.

    Any shooter that isn't set in WWII or has you fighting waves of nondescript aliens is a breath of fresh air these days, as far as I'm concerned.

    "Quit your whining, melon head!"
