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:


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:

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.

    GriftGFX Except.. clickers are really popular.. so not everyone realizes the pointlessness :D (23 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth cookie clicker brilliantly captures that transition from being obsessed with the grind to realizing the pointlessness of it. (39 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth rankings/ladders are more meaningful. they meter your skill level and can be motivation to improve. but grind kind of meters just feels so pointless. (43 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX In this kind of game I prefer that it doesn't have too much of an impact on gameplay. Like people still like filling bars in OW but there are only cosmetic unlocks. (44 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth he could watch the Time Played meter, it will never be full :D (45 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth but the bars used to have more impact on the gameplay. like levling in an rpg. (46 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I don't find it surprising.. people reacted the same way to SWBF.. and compared to the last few Battlefield games it's a light package. (46 minutes ago)
