Ubisoft has confirmed that Call of Juarez Gunslinger will be available May 22nd for $14.99 as a downloadable console title and will release on PC through digital and retail distribution channels. The PC digital version pre-order will give you immediate full access to the 2nd entry in the Call Of Juarez series: Call Of Juarez Bound in Blood. Uplay preorders will also give you access to an exclusive pack of legendary weapons.
In Call of Juarez Gunslinger, players embark on the epic journey of Silas Greaves, a ruthless bounty hunter who spent his life on the trail of the West’s most notorious outlaws. Now it is Silas time to tell his story, which is linked to the history of the Wild West era: a mix of myths and historical facts.
Call of Juarez is a franchise that I always felt had a lot of potential, to perhaps even deliver as compelling an experience as Red Dead Redemption. The problem is that Ubisoft doesn’t seem to think that and in turn have never put the level of resources toward the franchise that it would take to get it there. Ubisoft as a development house definitely has the talent, the question is will they ever truly commit to the franchise and give it the push it needs.
