First in-engine footage of Ubisoft's Call of Juarez: Gunslinger

UPDATE: Impressive-looking gameplay now shown off.

UPDATE: A just-released new gameplay trailer for Call of Juarez: Gunslinger has shown off a number of the game's locales and characters.

Real-life historical figures such as Billy the Kid and Jesse James feature amidst a lot of blood-spattered shooting. There's also a mine train section and plenty of sunset-soaked vistas.

It's an impressive effort for a downloadable title, and looks a huge improvement on 2011's modern-day update Call of Juarez: The Cartel.

ORIGINAL STORY: Ubisoft has released the first in-engine footage from Call of Juarez: Gunslinger, its upcoming downloadable shooter that returns to the series' Western origins.

Due out on PC, PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade, Gunslinger lets you step into the spurred boots of grizzled bounty hunter Silas Greaves.

There's no actual gameplay in the footage (that's coming in another trailer next week, apparently), but the game's world at least looks promising, especially considering the title's download-only origins.

Gunslinger has the job of redeeming the series following disappointing modern-day entry Call of Juarez: The Cartel, back in 2011.

"The whole thing's noisy and messy and pleasantly rough around the edges," Chris Donlan wrote in Eurogamer's Call of Juarez: Gunslinger preview last year. "This should be a breezy knockabout blaster."
