Desperados III receives a new set of challenges in The Baron’s Call #2, Speedrun Contest on now to win THQ prizes

From Press Release:

Vienna, Austria/ Munich, Germany, August 20th, 2020: A cat, a dog and a chicken walk into the town. In the end, Doc McCoy is free! It may sound like the beginning of an epic joke, but is indeed the description of one of the four new Baron’s Challenges, added to Desperados III for free. In the Rescue Aid Society Challenge, you take control of Stella the Cat, Agent Floofs, and Sergeant Cluckers! These three unlikely heroes might end McCoy’s imprisonment if their skills are used wisely. What do the free challenges have to offer? Take a look:

  • Three Men with No Name: Where is Waldo? Identify three specific guards among the crowd of supposed doppelgangers on the map – and kill them!
  • Bear Trap Triplets: We all know how much Hector loves his little Bianca. One can only imagine what he could do with three of them… why not put it to a test?
  • Best Served Cold: Some poor guy didn’t know who the Baron was and cheated him. The Baron wants him found in a crowded market place and brought to the docks – dead or alive.
  • Rescue Aid Society: Alas! Doc McCoy is being held prisoner in the Bayous. Isabelle’s cat Stella, a dog, and a chicken have formed a special animal commando to rescue the Doc.
