SAN FRANCISCO – MARCH 1, 2007 – Today Ubisoft, one of the world's largest video game publishers, announced that Call of Juarez, previously announced for the PC, will also be released for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft in Summer 2007. Developed by Techland in Poland, Call of Juarez provides the only Western first-person shooter experience on Xbox 360. An enhanced, Vista-ready PC version, equipped with DirectX 10 support, will be released in North America simultaneously.
Call of Juarez captures the brutality and ruthlessness that turned the American Frontier into a theater of war. Players will experience legendary Wild West action including duels at high noon, gruesome shootouts and barroom brawls. The intense multiplayer modes pit bands of money-hungry outlaws against one another through a variety of game options and different terrain. An authentic Wild West single-player campaign puts players into the world of both the hunter AND the hunted, each equipped with contrasting weaponry, styles and motives.
The hunted, Billy Candle, is determined to prove he's not a nobody. But when his parents are murdered, Billy stands accused. Hot on his trail is his stepfather's brother, the hunter, Reverend Ray McCall, a legendary gunfighter who believes that the lord has chosen him to be Billy's judge, jury and executioner.
