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.
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.

@aphex187: Exactly man. I would be very ok if they go this way from now on, but they want because they simply just can't all be R-rated. (3 Hours ago)
@Moonwalker: These R-rated super hero movies is what the genre needed and Logan is a testament to that! FOTY so far for me. (3 Hours ago)
I spent way too much time reading about Amiga mods tonight. (3 Hours ago)
@Sdarts: Yup. Oh and I can't forget to mention how dark it is, and that story, real nice. The dynamic between Jackman and Stewart was superb too. (12 Hours ago)
@Moonwalker: I'm glad you enjoyed it. And yes, Wolverine in the comics was always bloody, savage and ruthless. Something the previous movies never did, probably to stay PG-13 - suitable for teens. (12 Hours ago)
@digi_matrix: Looking very forward to it. But no spoilers please. Now I know I will most likely cry at the end. (Which is never a bad thing.) (12 Hours ago)
@droezelke: No problem, in games like Edith Finch what's most important is story, characters and world settings. It's like movies or a very short TV show/mini series, gameplay isn't as important. (12 Hours ago)
