Ubisoft have announced some details of the next game in the Call of Juarez series by Techland along with a teaser trailer and a few screenshots.
From the dust of a gold mine to the dirt of a saloon, Call of Juarez Gunslinger is a real homage to the Wild West tales and era. Players will live 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.
Made of memorable encounters with some of the West’s most notorious names such as Pat Garret, Jesse James and Butch Cassidy, the game blurs the lines between man and myth. Call of Juarez Gunslinger lets players live the greatest legends of the Old West.

Call of Juarez Gunslinger Screenshots
The Canyon panorama
The Canyon is undoubtedly one of the most recognizable Western settings, as deadly a place to visit, as it is picturesque to behold.
The Camp panorama
Outlaws on the run often had no choice but to adopt a nomadic lifestyle in order to avoid the scaffold. Infamous John Wesley Hardin and his gang were accustomed to sleeping in remote places under the stars, with improvised fires and whisky bottles to break the bite of the cold.
The Stinking Springs Farm
The Stinking Springs is a loose knit community in New Mexico barely tied together with parcel string and hangman’s rope. It is in this infamous hell that on December 23, 1880, after an excruciatingly long game of cat and mouse, Billy the Kid was finally captured by Pat Garrett.
The Goldmine Panorama
The Goldmine became the symbol of the shortcut to the American dream when James W. Marshall discovered gold in 1949, launching the California Gold Rush in the process. This was one of the greatest and brutal collective adventures in American History. But keep one hand on the pan and another on your gun. Fast money brings with it quick tempers.
Entering a town for the first time in the Wild West was a crucial moment for both visitor and hosts. Local Vigilantes on shaky terms of employment were often in charge of the safety of the townsfolk, and it is easier to argue about what is right and wrong when the potential danger is already dead. Don’t let the quiet welcome of El Paso fool you. There’s a dozen eyes judging you behind closed shutters and they’re weighing your every step with their fingers on a trigger.
Call of Juarez Gunslinger will be coming to XBLA, PSN and PC Digital Download. EF will be bringing you more details on the game later this month.
