Lead and Gold released next month, but play it now

Fatshark’s Old West-themed Lead and Gold: Gangs of the Wild West has been dated for an April 8 release on Steam. For the impatient gunslingers, however, publisher Paradox brings good news — those who pre-order the game starting today gain instant access to the beta, and get a 10 percent discount on the $14.99 price tag to boot.

The download-only, class-based, “not reallyTF2-like shooter is said to be in development for consoles as well, presumably both Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network. No dates yet, though.
