Call of Juarez Returns To It’s Roots With Gunslinger



The Call of Juarez franchise tends to inspire hot and cold reactions from gamer’s and the media depending on the installment. For instance, Call of Juarez: The Cartel is sitting at a stately 47/100 for it’s metacritic score, whereas the original nearly doubles that score at a 71/100, and Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood sits atop the heap at 78/100. Ubisoft and Techland hope to bring the franchise back to it’s roots with Call of Juarez: Gunslinger. The reveal trailer references the likes of Jesse James and Billy the Kidd saying – “They’ve all made their choices, and I’ve made mine.” in an attempt to outline the lawlessness of the American Frontier. We may be looking at a return to glory for the Call of Juarez franchise with Gunslinger. However, this is just the reveal trailer, and only time will tell.
