Ubisoft just announced the next in the Call of Juarez series. Shock of the century: it’s set in the “modern Wild West”.

The first game. Call of Juarez isn’t in Kansas
any more.

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.#
