The lights are on
After the misfire of Call of Juarez: The Cartel, Ubisoft has taken the series back into the 1800s. Call of Juarez: Gunslinger is a follow-up to 2009's Bound in Blood. Instead of walking in the well-worn shoes of the McCall brothers though, players will follow the path of bounty hunter Silas Greaves.
The series trademark concentration mode is joined by a new "sense of death" feature that allows Silas to dodge bullets and fire back. Additionally, a new skill system will allow players to tailor Silas to their own styles.
Call of Juarez: Gunslinger will arrive on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC on May 22, 2013 for $14.99. PC pre-orders unlock immediate access to Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood, and those choosing to use Ubisoft's uPlay service will also unlock a pack of legendary weapons.

this looks great!
Mike, I appreciate you keeping up to date coverage of downloadable games. I thought that was an area GI was lacking in before (I do enjoy Impulse but that only comes around once a month).
Graphics are cellish shaded now? Hmmm I enjoyed bound in blood but the cartel is the only game where I played the first mission and just stopped.
This looks good,time will tell.Glad they are setting it back in the ole west.
This might not suck as much with the new direction, hopefully.
Techland is busy lately.
I've only played bound in blood, but I liked it a lot. I think I may need to get this and blood dragon
I played this a PAX, from what I gathered it was a blood-soaked return to normalcy for a series that really deserves more awesome games. I loved Bound in Blood, personally.
I see this either going the way of crap or being good but under-appreciated.
I might want to pre order for the Steam version of BoB. I got it on the cheap along with the original CoJ on Amazon, but that version never goes 5 seconds past the starting cutscene before exiting.
Of course if the actual game I pre order isn't too fun, $15 would be a bit steep for a game I already own (and could probably fix if someone told me how).
I enjoyed the first two games in the series, the third I never played on account of how bad it looked. I will however give this one a try. I like the art style they have used and at only 15 bucks I'm sure it will be a decent little title.
Call of Juarez....why do they keep making these games? I keep hearing they were all terrible! I mean sure there may have been good ones but really those were from die hard fans that seem to have no taste like it.
Now that could be misguided view of the series but really I never hear anything good.
I actually think this looks pretty good. I loved the first call of juarez. I wonder how long this game is.
saw the picture and thought to myself :finally there making rdr2" then i read call of juarez -______________________________________________________-
After reading The Dark Tower by Stephen King anything with "Gunslinger" in the title gets me excited. I'll definately be picking this up and giving it a try, although I am not the biggest western fan there is.
