Ubisoft just announced the next in the Call of Juarez series. Shock of the century: it’s set in the “modern Wild West”.
The third game in the series has been developed by Techland “for next generation consoles and Windows PC”.
The game is “a first-person shooter with an immersive and mature story,” apparently.
“Players can expect to embark on a journey like no other – one that will take them from the heart of modern day Los Angeles, California to Juarez, Mexico.”
Adding to the announcement, Ubisoft’s Caroline Stevens said: “Call of Juarez The Cartel is an action-packed shooter game with a strong story, interesting characters and a wide variety of gameplay options.
“The game will bring the best elements of the Wild West into modern times with a very gritty and relevant plot.”
The Western-themed Call of Juarez first released for PC in 2006, and was ported to 360 in June, 2007.
Its prequel, Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood, was released in 2009.#
