Ever dream about wreaking havoc as a medieval thug? Soon Xbox fans will be able to when Rustler, an old-school action sandbox game set in an even older school era, rides its way to Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One later this year. Embark on an incredible historically inaccurate adventure filled with pop culture references, insane humor, and medieval shenanigans.
In Rustler, you’ll have the freedom to do whatever it takes to improve your social standing in the world as a peasant named Guy. You’ll begin your quest for riches and recognition plowing the fields for your nagging mother, listening to your best friend named Buddy drunkenly ramble, and steal horses for your brigand boss. However, it won’t be too long before you get caught up in the absurd medieval fun that is Rustler. Pimping out your horse, slicing the limbs of the local guards, and searching for the holy grail are a few of many nonsensical activities you can partake in.
To win over the kingdom, Guy can scheme his way into the Grand Tournament with the ultimate prize of winning the princess’s hand. Or, you can choose to simply cause mischief by wreaking mayhem in villages and cities with a number of weapons at your disposal including swords, crossbows, and even holy hand grenades. Need some help in combat? Don’t fret, search for heavy armor and hire beat-boxing bards to aid in your battles.
While tearing your way through half the kingdom, you’ll also encounter an assortment of mini-games to play. Need some extra coin? Participate in the Medieval Martial Arts (MMA) cage fights. Want to see how speedy your ride is? Leave your opponents in the dust by taking on horse races around the village.
Be the true anti-hero you were meant to be when Rustler releases on Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One later in 2021.Related:
