Ubisoft Signs 'Call of Juarez'

by Rainier on April 4, 2006 @ 10:22 a.m. PDT

Call of Juarez's unique plot is located 19th century Wild West America and requires a combination of both intelligent stealth and pure reflex shooting. Fast paced revolver duels using historically accurate firearms, horseback riding and memorable locations together with top notch graphics and climatic soundtrack will immerse both casual and hardcore players in the attractive well known world of western movies.

Call of Juarez features classic gunslinging action including duels, shootouts and barroom brawls. Players will relive the days of the Wild West in numerous settings including local saloons and brothels. In the single-player campaign, players enter the world of two opposing characters equipped with contrasting weapons and styles. Ray is the retired gunslinger turned rough-and-tumble preacher. Billy, a sneaky and elusive man befriended and trained by Native Americans, is on the run. Authentic Western situations chronicle the cat-and-mouse game played by Ray and Billy. Players are forced to make split-second decisions to escape the grasp of Ray or get their hands on Billy, and outwit secondary characters throughout this Western setting.

Call of Juarez leverages Techland's Chrome game engine which allows players to use objects found in the world as weapons or tools to solve problems. Graphics, artificial intelligence and multiplayer features will immerse players in the Wild West like never before.

"Call of Juarez is a tribute to the Wild West, the birthplace of the shooter," said Jay Cohen, vice president of publishing at Ubisoft. "Call of Juarez is the first game to truly represent the Wild West with its engaging storyline, characters and gorgeous environments. Ubisoft is thrilled to be partnering with Techland to bring this unique title to PC gamers."
