"Wanna be a gunslinger," sang pop star M in his 1979 single Pop Muzik, "don't be a rock singer." Any attempt to tie that into this story would be too contrived and, frankly, too daft. Techland's wild wild west 'em up Call of Juarez: Gunslinger will launch for at $14.99, publisher Ubisoft announced today. It's coming for download on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, while PC gets a retail edition too.
Gunslinger's a big dust-up and throw-down with a load of legendary wild west names, from Jesse James to Butch Cassidy. Oh, you'd better believe you're shooting men.
Our Steve has played a bit of Gunslinger. It's "an old-fashioned shooter with a few bells and whistles, but the shooting felt natural and well-weighted, and the environment was novel enough to pull me through," he said. Hopefully the full game will be worth a pop, then.
