After a rather mixed reaction to its attempts to take the action to modern times in Call of Juarez: The Cartel, Ubisoft has announced that the series will return to the Wild West for more gun-slinging action. In fact, it's titled Call of Juarez: Gunslinger, in order to avoid any confusion.

Your role in the latest title is that of a bounty hunter, with some rather challenging targets such as Billy the Kid and Jesse James. To add to the fun of blasting away at anything that moves there'll be a version of bullet time, or 'concentration mode', which will allow you to dodge bullets and fire in slow motion; expect lots of pretty graphical effects of bullets cutting through the air.

This new entry will arrive on PlayStation Network, rather than as a retail disc, so we'll keep an eye out for release details.

Does this return to the Wild West appeal to you?
