Some might not remember Polish studio Techland’s catalog of titles prior to waves of undead and onslaught of tiered weapons, but the developer did have other projects before dabbling into Dead Island/Dying Light. Games like the Call of Juarez series published by Ubisoft is a prime example of the team’s caliber focusing on the first-person shooter genre painted with a western setting.
Exempting Call of Juarez: Cartel which took a modern approach to the early 19th century-based franchise and ended being the least received title, players overall reflect on the majority of the series to be a fun experience that could not be replicated. For fans who might have missed the latest installment back in 2013, now might be your chance to go for a go at the series.
According to a listing on the Entertainment Software Ratings Board (ESRB), Call of Juarez: Gunslinger is listed for a Nintendo Switch version. Upon other details nothing else can link to when we might expect the game to be released or even a timed announcement.
Gunslinger is the last title of the series treading back to the series roots after the lack luster Cartel in 2011 which stripped the western appeal for a more timely approach to the franchise. Here is a short description comprised from the ESRB rating:
“This is a first-person shooter in which players assume the role of a gunslinger named Silas Greaves. Players use pistols, shotguns, and rifles o shoot and kill dozens of enemy bandits/thugs in gun fights. Shootouts are highlighted by realistic gunfire, cries of pain, slow-motion effects, and large splashes of blood, which sometimes stain the ground.”
In conjunction with Ubisoft’s current lineup on Nintendo Switch, Call of Juarez might be a better deal than what Assassin’s Creed III left in Switch users mouth following the game’s release earlier this year. And seeing that the game is a first-person title, possible implementation of gyro controls could be on the table for this upcoming port.
Call of Juarez: Gunslinger is currently available for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
