Call of Juarez won't go home in a box

Call of Juarez won't go home in a box

Word of a new Call of Juarez game did not particularly make people very excited yesterday, but today Ubisoft decided to surprise us a bit by announcing that Call of Juarez: Gunslinger will be only available as a downloadable game on Xbox Live, Playstation Network and PC. Let's hope Techland will not blow it like in Call of Juarez: The Cartel. The return of the Wild West is probably a way for them to make us forget about the last episode completely. images and trailer inside.

Press release:



TAKE ON THE BEST IN THE WEST IN CALL OF JUAREZ® GUNSLINGER


SAN FRANCISCO — September 6, 2012 – Today, Ubisoft® announced the coming release of Call of Juarez® Gunslinger. Reliving – and revealing – the lives of the most infamous lawmen and outlaws of the Old West, Call of Juarez Gunslinger will challenge gamers’ skills in the unforgiving frontier. Developed by Techland, the brand new iteration in the Call of Juarez franchise will be firing away in 2013 for Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360 Entertainment System, Sony Entertainment Network and PC.

Returning to the roots of the series, Call of Juarez Gunslinger puts gamers in the shoes of a bounty hunter who has his sights set on taking down the most notorious gunslingers, including the likes of Billy the Kid, Pat Garett, Jesse James and more.

Giving gamers the tools to take down the best, the Concentration Mode made famous by the series returns with a twist – allowing gamers to unleash a flurry of bullets while dodging others. Along with the gun slinging abilities, gamers will hone their skills and acquire new abilities in a series-first skill progression system, allowing players to develop their own gun fighting style by choosing the abilities they want to develop.

I like the Key Art, and hunting down legends of the west sounds cool as hell, will keep an eye on this.

Please don't be a Kinect/Move game. The release on PC hopefully guarantees that it will not be.

Awesome girl :P

Oh and the character art is nice too, better than the bullshit modern stuff they pulled off last time.

Did the other games have you hunting famous real life outlaws? I forget. Either way, cool twist.

Nope, but there was some kind of an open world sequence in the second game, where there were sidequests in which you had to hunt outlaws.

The trailer looks a lot like this picture from Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood: http://adsoftheworld.com/files/images/callofjuarez...

Remember the very first. I had to wait 6 long months to play it until the lame NVidia guys managed to deliver a driver for my 8800GTS that didnt completely fuck up ingame graphics...
So NVidia: FUCK YOU ! Never again !

The preview on eurogamer is not particularly encouraging, instead of being a atmospheric story driven shooter like bound in blood, this seems to be a score based arcade style game, i'd rather pay full price for a proper call of juarez game.

About the game


What's up?
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog and i say that as someone who believed half life 2 is still the greatest FPS ever made. but it's still an issue that plagues a lot of games. horizon recently was terrible at this with the audio logs. (6 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog but that's a common problem with maintaining player control even when characters are talking at you. you get distracted and start fannying around. (7 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @MrWhite: eh, i'll give you alex vance, but i don't really find any of the others particularly well written. and i'd argue throwing boxes while you're supposed to be engrosse in story is bad design. (8 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Sometimes the less you know about a character too = more interesting. Like G-Man. He pops up now and again being a creepy bastard. Thats what makes him interesting. (2 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Plus the fact you were messing about with boxes is a good thing, no? Game first, story and characters second is my motto. (2 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @KORNdog: Come on Korn, you know thats a horseshit statement you made. Before Naughty Dog and Bioware with Mass Effect, there was Alyx Vance. She may be a bit dated these days, but back then... (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @MrWhite: i guess i missed it. i was too busy running about all over the place throwing boxes around as my mute husk. lol (2 Hours ago)
