“Spiritual Successor to Max Payne” El Paso, Elsewhere Announced

The world met El Paso, Elsewhere during the Guerilla Collective 2 E3 showcase.

The game, dubbed as being a “love letter to action classic Max Payne“, comes from Strange Scaffold.

Strange Scaffold recently released An Airport for Aliens Currently By Dogs.

El Paso, Elsewhere features a fully-fledged neo-noir story campaign. The game is set in a reality-shifting motel that is chock full of monsters. The game will feature a wide arsenal of weaponry, including Molotov cocktails “filled with holy blue flame”.

What’s more, in homage to Max Payne, the series defining “bullet-time” slow-motion dives feature prominently.

An official blurb about El Paso, Elsewhere details;

El Paso, Elsewhere is a supernatural neo-noir third-person shooter. Hunt werewolves, fallen angels, and other damned creatures in vivid slow motion. Fight your way through a reality-shifting motel, floor by bloody floor. Save the victims of Dracula, lord of the vampires. And destroy the villain you loved – even if it means dying yourself.

As players experience a groundbreaking story about the aftermath of an abusive relationship with the lord of the vampires, they’ll save hostages from a variety of twisted environments, scavenge for ammunition beneath the watchful eye(s) of fallen angels, and discover the human cost of taking a werewolf claw to the chest. Neo-noir never looked so good”.
