Call of Juarez: Gunslinger riding into Australia on May 22

Series returns to its Western roots with latest instalment

Ubisoft has set the local release date for Techland's Call of Juarez: Gunslinger for May 22.

The Call of Juarez games have always been a homage to the Wild West era, and after setting the game in the present day with 2011’s Call of Juarez: The Cartel, the series returns back to its roots with Gunslinger.

This time around players will step into the boots of Silas Greaves, a bounty hunter who spent his life on the trail of the West’s most notorious outlaws.

Silas’ story is linked to the history of the Wild West era, mixing myths with historical facts.

During gameplay, Silas will encounter some of the West’s most recognisable outlaw figures, such as Pat Garret, Jesse James and Butch Cassidy.

Call of Juarez: Gunslinger will be available for $17.95 as a downloadable console title, and as a digital and retail product on PC.

Ubisoft is giving away immediate full access to the second entry in the Call Of Juarez series, 2009’s Bound in Blood, to those who preorder the digital PC version.

Preorders via Ubisoft’s Uplay service will also net players access to an exclusive pack of legendary weapons.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
