Today Ubisoft announced that the latest installment of the series, Call of Juarez The Cartel, is a thing and will be “relevant.” This is welcome news as I thoroughly enjoyed Call of Jurez Bound in Blood. It may not have been perfect, but as far as FPS games go, it had a fun story with interesting characters and the gameplay was pretty solid. It’s definitely worth checking out if you enjoy cowboys and people of a questionable nature.

The press release stated the following, “Call of Juarez The Cartel is an action-packed shooter game with a strong story, interesting characters and a wide variety of gameplay options. The game will bring the best elements of the Wild West into modern times with a very gritty and relevant plot.” I’m not exactly sure what the Wild West is like in modern times, but I’m willing to give the game a shot if it’s just as good as the last entry. From the sound of it, there will be some very mature themes involving the drug-riddled Mexico of today, which seems like it would make for a pretty interesting setting if it’s handled in a classy way by Techland. It’s not often enough that games get a chance to tackle current events and maybe make people think a little more about what’s going on in the world around them. I have no idea if this game will even come close to achieving, or even attempting that, but if they do, good for them.

Electronic Gaming Monthly has a full exclusive on the game in this month’s issue and I will definitely be keeping my eyes open for any additional information as it becomes available.
