    The Wild West is about to get a lot weirder as you step into the boots and spurs of the
    vampire gunslinger, Jericho Cross


    They grind their enemies for fuel, fashion their skin into protective cloaks and create
    weapons designed to exterminate en masse, and they're the good guys! They are the
    Darkwatch, a mysterious secret society that has protected humanity from evil since the
    dawn of civilization. Their newest and most deadly agent is Jericho Cross, an outlaw
    gunslinger pulled into their ranks by an unfortunate close encounter with a vampire lord.

    Draw your six-guns and sharpen your fangs as you take on an army of Darkness across
    the old West. As well as a whole mass o' western weaponry, you're armed with an array
    of vampiric powers that allow you to move, see and survive beyond what could be called
    "human limits". Along with your demonic horse, you ride the prairie in search of evil and a
    way to save your very soul from damnation.
