New downloadable Old West shooter from Techland arriving next year; players take on role of bounty hunter, taking on Billy the Kid, Jesse James, and Pat Garrett.
The fourth Call of Juarez title will arrive in 2013. Ubisoft today announced Call of Juarez: Gunslinger, the first in the series to arrive for downloadable platforms Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, and PC.
Call of Juarez: Gunslinger is in development at Techland, the shop that has built every entry in the series, and takes players back to the Old West. Gamers will take on the role of a bounty hunter, whose directive is to take down some of the West's most notorious gunslingers, including Billy the Kid, Jesse James, and Pat Garrett.
The game will boast a Concentration mode, a previous staple of the series, in which players can target a number of enemies and dispatch a host of bullets in rapid succession. In addition, Call of Juarez: Gunslinger features a series-first skill progression system, which will allow players to specifically design their own style by selecting abilities they wish to develop.
The most recent Call of Juarez title was 2011's Call of Juarez: The Cartel. That game was developed by Techland and took place in modern-day Los Angeles and Mexico. Previous games in the series, the 2006 original and its 2009 sequel Bound in Blood, were set during historical time periods.
I think this time they should include that free roaming part like RDR in COJ . IT will be pretty awesome then.
It is awesome,after that cartel shit now we i am exited to se some real western cowboyz in action.I am pritty exited .
I take it game will be free to play, but you have to pay $'s/spend points for extra ammo, weapons etc etc
I was hoping after the Cartel if they decided to make another CoJ game that they'd go all in no holds barred. Make it a true open world game and try to one-up RDR.
Wonder if it will be linear like the other CoJ games? They were fun games, but RDR just kind of set a bar.
After playing the horrid mess that was The Cartel, I'm done with Call of Juarez. I'll just stick to replaying Red Dead Redemption over and over again.
So, it seems that The Cartel's poor showing has resulted in the next COJ game being a download only game.
I was looking forward to play The Cartel 3rd game in the series after playing first two superb games, but was shocked when review came out, I don't know what happened, I thought Techland to be a very talented developer.
@sarosh_assassin They got scared of a sensitive market and gave into pressure to try and be like other shooters which essentially made it bland and non-unique. Hopefully they learned their lesson. Don't fix what ain't broken, make it bigger.
Back to the Wild West - yeah
Digital Download only - booo
The co-op was dropped - booo
- guess I will have to wait and see before getting excited for this ...
