Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood announced

0

Today, Ubisoft announced Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. It is a prequel to the sub-par, but artistically inspired, western shooter Call of Juarez.

The details are slim. According to the press release, Bound in Blood features settings such as “Civil War-era Georgia” (fingers crossed for fire) and Aztec ruins (fingers crossed for plague). It also mentioned being able to control both McCall brothers -- a point that may be hinting at cooperative play or another split narrative.

No word on release timeframe or if Ubisoft decided to get trendy and offer moral choices to players. Press release is listed after the break for those interested in exclamation marks and promises.

UBISOFT® ANNOUNCES DEVELOPMENT OF CALL OF JUAREZ®: BOUND IN BLOOD

New Game is a Prequel to the Successful Wild West Shooter

SAN FRANCISCO – January 13, 2009 – Today Ubisoft announced that it will publish Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood for Xbox 360(TM), Playstation® 3 and PC in 2009.  Ubisoft is again teaming with Techland to develop Call of Juarez®: Bound in Blood, a prequel to the action shooter Call of Juarez®.

"Call of Juarez® was well received by gamers and critics," said Tony Key, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Ubisoft. "We're confident this new collaboration with Techland will bring an even bigger and better adventure to fans of shooters and the lawless Wild West."

Call of Juarez®: Bound in Blood transports players from a ravaged Civil War-era Georgia to the Aztec ruins of Mexico.
