Your ranch but the wilderness rules
PC EARLY ACCESS – EARLY 2021
Rebuild your ranch, protect your livestock and go on the hunt
The family ranch was once your grandfather’s pride-and-joy, but it has fallen on hard times and it’s up to you to turn things around.
Sitting in a remote forested valley, the dilapidated homestead will test all your abilities as you attempt to turn it into the most prosperous ranch in the region – either alone or in up to four player co-op multiplayer.
Rebuild your ranch
The years have not been kind to your family ranch and it will take time and money to restore it to its former glory.
Buy tools from the local hardware store and purchase a range of vehicles from the garage to help with your rebuilding projects.
Renovate the main house, decide what livestock you want to farm and construct the barns, pens and runs you’ll need to keep them safe and secure.
Look after your livestock
Grand building projects are one thing. Paying for them is another. That’ll come down to your ranching skills.
Overseeing a profitable ranch is all about the day-to-day. Once you’ve selected and taken on your livestock, regular feeding and watering will keep them healthy.
Successful breeding and careful rearing of the young will help boost the numbers in your herds and flocks — the more produce you have to sell, the more income you’ll receive for all that hard work.
Head out on the hunt
There’s a large open-world environment outside your cosy homestead and it’s teeming with wildlife – why not grab your rifle and head out into the forest to stalk deer and hunt bears?
But remember, the wilderness lives by its own laws and you aren’t the only skilled hunter. Sometimes your steady hand and sharp eyes will also be needed back on the ranch to stop hungry wolves turning your off-grid dream into a nightmare.
