Reliving and revealing the lives of the most infamous lawmen and outlaws of the Old West, Call of Juarez: The Gunslinger will test gamers mettle in the unforgiving frontier. Call of Juarez: The Gunslinger, developed by Techland, will be firing away in 2013 for XBLA, PSN and PC.
Returning to the roots of the series, Call of Juarez: The 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 Garrett, 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 their gun slinging abilities, gamers will hone their skills and acquire new abilities in a series-first skill system.
So COJ is back but this time as a digital only title, I can’t say that this is a bad move. The last few games have disappointed and the performance issues frustrated many, including myself, to no end. Here’s hoping that by scaling things back a bit, the game can get back on the right track and perhaps use the success of this installment to make it worthy of a full release at some point in the future.
