FRANCISCO — JUNE 30, 2009 — Today Ubisoft announces that Call of Juarez®: Bound
in Blood, the prequel to the Wild West action shooter Call of Juarez, is now
available in stores across North America for the Xbox 360® video game and
entertainment system from Microsoft, the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment
system and Windows-based PC. Developed by Techland, Call of Juarez: Bound in
Blood takes place 20 years prior to the events of the original storyline.
Following the story of the McCall Brothers, players enter a quest for the
legendary Gold of Juarez leading them from a ravaged Georgia during the Civil
War to the Aztec ruins of Mexico. The brothers, Ray and Thomas, make their
lawless trail into a truly Wild West, using their superior gun-slinging skills
to take out all of those that stand in their way.
"Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood is one of the best and most authentic Wild West
experiences ever offered as interactive entertainment,” said Tony Key , senior
vice president of sales & marketing. "We know that the Wild West offers a great
setting that is underrepresented in the world of interactive entertainment and
we are proud to bring this quality product to the marketplace.”
Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood also brings the Wild West mayhem online.
Gunslingers, bandits and marshals struggle online for bounty, and multiple
character classes can be unlocked for use during team-based objective modes or
the straightforward team death match. Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood introduces
an innovative Bounty System, which increases the bounty on a player's head as
they rack up more kills.
