Ubisoft’s underrated but awesome Call of Juarez series is heading to modern times via their latest title, Call of Juarez: The Cartel. Developed by Techland once again, The Cartel will allow players to shuttle between modern day Los Angeles, California and Juarez, Mexico as they either side with or take out some sort of drug cartel. Expect a full-fledged reveal in this month’s Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM).
If you haven’t played previous Call of Juarez we suggest you give them a shot. While the first game stumbled a bit when it came to pacing, the second one dubbed Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood improved upon nearly every screw up, delivering a high octane, explosive shooter.__STARTQUOTE__Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood is a marked improvement over the first game. Techland has fine tuned many gameplay aspects to make this game thoroughly entertaining. They’ve axed the annoying bits and replaced it with high production values and balls to the wall gunplay. Its a solid shooter backed by solid production values, high octane gameplay, stellar voice acting and an interesting plot.__ENDQUOTE__Call of Juarez: The Cartel will release some time in 2011 for the Xbox360, PS3 and PC.
