Bang! Howdy Public Beta

Three Rings Design, a premier developer of multiplayer online casual games, announced today that the public beta for “Bang! Howdy,” a multiplayer online tactical strategy game for the PC, will commence in May 2006. Players face off in the steam-powered Wild West, using casual strategy game mechanics in a variety of gameplay modes like Claim Jumping, Cattle Herding and Steam Mustang Hockey!

This follows upon the company’s success with “Puzzle Pirates,” an internationally acclaimed massively multiplayer online game that TIME Magazine called “addictive.” Like “Puzzle Pirates,” “Bang! Howdy” will be distributed online and will be free to play, with optional purchase of micro-currency to obtain upgrades and additional content.

Bang! Howdy is a hybrid between turn-based and real-time strategy gameplay, and is played in short fast-paced rounds. As the player progresses through five unique Wild West settings, new units, gameplay scenarios, arenas, customizations and game features are introduced. Players can customize their in-game avatars with a wide array of Western clothing and accessories.
