Let’s be frank: the last Call of Juarez was a bit of a dog. I reviewed it and scored it 3/10, some have even accused me of being a tad generous with that score. But Gunslinger has always looked a little more promising, dragging the series back to its Wild West roots.
Now we have some concept artwork, some rendered screens and this trailer to help us regain faith in the series ahead of its return to our consoles as a downloadable title later this year.
Ubisoft and Techland are evoking the names of some real Wild West legends like Billy the Kid, John Wesley Hardin, Butch Cassidy, Pat Garrett and Jesse James for this journey through the dusty history of outlaws and lawmen in the near-lawless region between the bustling melting pot on America’s east coast and the gold-rich paradise of the west coast.
It’s all looking like a very bloody, explosive visit to an era that holds some fantastic opportunities for a great game. We’ll keep you updated as we find out more about this one.
