Catch a glimpse of the new map in a brand new trailer:
Lead & Gold: Gangs of the Wild West’s newest map, Jacob’s Bridge, features new artwork and is set in the northern reaches of the Wild West. The new game mode, Demolition, pits two gangs against each other in a Powder Keg spin off where the objective is to blow stuff up. Rivaling gangs play simultaneously as both attackers and defenders battling franticly to destroy the opposing gang’s objectives.
In addition to a new map and game mode, gamers will be given the opportunity to change his or her Profession at any time in the game resulting in a death, and gangs will now be given the option to vote or kick off players of their own team. On top of the additions, several improvements were added to the game. And, in the spirit of true competition, WANTED posters will expand to the top three leaders of the leaderboard and can be found in the Sinner's Gulch map.
