“Call of Juarez: The Cartel is an action-packed shooter game with a strong story, interesting characters and a wide variety of gameplay options,” said Adam Novickas, director of marketing at Ubisoft. “The game will bring the best elements of the Wild West into modern times with a very gritty and relevant plot.”

Call of Juarez: The Cartel is featured in an exclusive first look in the March issue of Electronic Gaming Monthly, available on newsstands in North America on February 9, 2011.
