Ubisoft released a new teaser trailer for Call of Juarez: Gunslinger today, along with the promise that they will fully reveal Techland’s downloadable Wild West title on March 14th. While none of us are exactly thrilled about our second look at the game being yet another teaser, at least this one is made up of more than just a bit of semi-relevant live-action video.
At any rate, Ubisoft also revealed that the protagonist in Call of Juarez: Gunslinger is a “ruthless bounty hunter” named Silas Greaves. He has spent his entire life hunting down the West’s most notorious outlaws, which include such infamous characters as; Jesse James, Billy the Kid, Pat Garett, and Butch Cassidy. Gunslinger’s plot is said to weave’s Greaves’ fictional story in with the real historical facts of the Wild West era, and let players “live the greatest legends of the Old West”.
The publisher had previously noted that the franchises’ classic gameplay mechanics will return for Call of Juarez: Gunslinger, with some additional all-new features. For example, Concentration Mode still allows players to slow down time to make shots, but it can now also use it to dodge incoming bullets. Techland has also added a new skill progression system that will allow players to customize their own gun fighting style by purchasing skill and ability upgrades.
Call of Juarez: Gunslinger is currently set to release sometime this year for Xbox Live Arcade, the PlayStation Network, and PC. Check out the game’s latest (and last) teaser trailer, along with a new set of screenshots in the gallery below. We will keep an eye out for the game’s full reveal next week and report all the details as they are announced. In the meantime, let us know your expectations for Ubisoft’s next installment on the Call of Juarez franchise in the comments below.
