Ubisoft has released a new gun-filled trailer for their upcoming prequel to Call of Juarez, subtitled Bound in Blood. As the title of the trailer suggests, this is all about gunplay. In fact, the trailer contains nothing but shooting. It is a nice look at the core gameplay you would expect from a western, and you really get a feel for the hyper-realistic style. There are some really solid effects in this footage, from the blurring in the foreground when you use your sight, to the slow-motion dueling with two pistols (John Woo would be proud). And frankly, if I am being totally honest here, any game that lets you fire a canon at a steamboat has my vote.
Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood lets you control two different characters who vary in playstyle greatly. One uses close combat, double pistols and dynamite, while the other prefers long range rifles and stealth.
It is a good time to be a western fan with this and Red Dead Redemption both on the way, and if this footage is any indication, Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood is looking good.
