Max Payne-inspired shooter El Paso, Elsewhere reveals narrative trailer

El Paso, Elsewhere

El Paso, Elsewhere introduces the lord of vampires in its new narrative trailer.

The new trailer for El Paso, Elsewhere shows off the fantastic third-person noir shooter, complete with its clever dialogue and fast gameplay.

Here’s a rundown on the game, plus the new trailer:

There was never any coming back from this. Xalavier Nelson Jr. and Strange Scaffold today debuted the “Draculae” trailer for upcoming neo-noir third person shooter El Paso, Elsewhere, giving players a chance to sink down into the pit with protagonist James Savage and come face to face with his ex-girlfriend and global threat, Draculae, the lord of the vampires.

Today’s trailer shows that this isn’t a hero’s tale, and for James Savage, there may not be a happy ending. Revisiting the dire situation that brought him back to his hometown and on a collision course with his former love, Savage comes to terms with what’s coming. This was always going to be a one-way trip, no matter the monsters slain or the pills taken. It’s up to you whether Savage’s flame burns bright or is quietly snuffed out.


  • Badass bullet time mechanics that let Savage weave between enemies while filling them with holes.
  • A meaningful collection of weapons; tear through Draculae’s army with a shotgun, an uzi, a hunting rifle, pistols and more.
  • Battle through a wide variety of horrific creatures, from werewolves and vampires to damned brides and biblically accurate angels
  • Environments filled with interactive objects – shoot ‘em up to get a better vantage point or snap a wooden table in half to resupply your stakes.
  • An original hip-hop horror soundtrack made in a collaboration between Xalavier Nelson Jr. and RJ Lake.
  • A fully-voiced cinematic neo-noir story starring Xalavier Nelson Jr. and content creator Negaoryx (Emme Montgomery).
  • 40+ level campaign set set in the ever-changing bowels of a motel in El Paso, Texas, with biomes ranging from medieval castles to blood-spattered meat lockers.
