Call of Juarez prequel dated for July

Wild West shooter coming to PC, PS3, 360.

Ubisoft has told Eurogamer that Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood will be released on 3rd July.

The PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 game acts as a prequel to Call of Juarez, focusing on brothers Thomas and Ray McCall. Ray later becomes Reverend Ray - one of the two main characters in Call of Juarez.

Each of the brothers will have unique abilities and gun-slinging styles, and each will be useful in different situations. Plus, both can be taken online, where an inventive Bounty System - that increases your worth as you gun down foes - will be in play.

Developer Techland is at the helm once more and aims to build on the stellar 8/10 we awarded to Call of Juarez back in 2006.

A spokesperson for Ubisoft was shy about the possibility of a demo, but we expect one will show up.
