A gangster emerges from cover, points his guns in the wrong direction and sidles toward me like a drug-addled crab. How did this man even survive this long in a Mexican drug cartel? I shoot him the face and turn on his two-dozen equally dopey friends, tapping the fire button impassively until the assault ends. This is justice in Techland’s vision of the modern Wild West. Brutal and boring.
Call of Juarez: The Cartel is a gunslinging sequel set in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. Chihuahua state legislators are trying to get federal authorities to ban the game for its depiction of warfare between the drug cartels of the city. With 6000 drug related deaths in the city in the last two years, Ciudad Juarez is one of the most violent towns in the world. Mexican authorities are worried that a videogame will make things worse.
The Cartel plans to bring Call of Juarez' wild west gunslinging to the present day. Drug cartels replace cowboys and there will be three characters instead of two. In fact, the whole game will be playable in three player co-op. We might be getting our hands on the game sooner than expected in the form of a demo. Techland brand manager, Blazej Krakowiak, told ScrawlFX that a demo is definitely planned, saying that it will "probably a co-op demo, but I can’t tell you whether it will be before or after release." For a look at Call of Juarez' new direction, watch the latest trailer, or have a browse of the Call of Juarez: The Cartel site for more info.
Call of Juarez: The Cartel abandons the dusty Wild West setting of the first two games and in favour of backstreets of modern day Mexico. The pious gunslinger, Reverand Ray is gone, too, replaced by three vigilantes, all of whom will be playable in the three-way co-op mode across 20 missions. The video above has seven minutes of man-killing action in night clubs, car chases and dusty back streets. There are plans to release a co-op demo in future, but it could arrive after the game comes out on July 19 in the US and July 22 in Europe. Head over to the official Call of Juarez site for more.
He’s a man apart. His trench coat is lifted gently by a light wind, the Nevada dust rising up around him like a shroud. He’s here to face down some criminal scum and exchange a prisoner. But he hasn’t come alone. He’s got a pair of friends up on a nearby mesa, not even a telltale glint of a scope to give them away. You know, when a guy in a cowboy hat brings along friends like these, it’s not exactly going to go according to plan. It doesn’t. The other side brought snipers too and suddenly all hell breaks loose. So long as hell means a gunfight. It could be ripped out of any number of spaghetti westerns, except... those guns? They’re automatic. And the mustangs they chase each other on? They’re 200 horsepower. Call of Juarez isn’t in the Old West any more. It’s moved on.
"Times have changed in the Old West, and yet, nothing's changed." If you've ever wanted to play a cowboy in a bullet-proof vest and a duster who forgets what he just said, Call of Juarez's modern-day sequel The Cartel was made for you. You and your two cop friends roam from Los Angeles to Juarez, dealing brutal justice to men in T-shirts wherever they can be found. A new official site has popped up with promises of 3 player co-op, interrogations and car chases. There's also some new concept art and two in-game screens below - shots first.
The release of the PC version of Assassin's Creed Revelations has been delayed by a couple of weeks. It'll hit consoles on November 15, but Eurogamer report that the PC version will come out on December 2. So that's another Ubisoft gamed delayed on PC. From Dust, Call of Juarez: The Cartel and Driver: San Francisco have all received similar delays. It could be worse, though. Previous Assassin's Creed games have taken months to reach our machines. We should just start mentally adding a few weeks to every Ubisoft release date to avoid future disappointment.
Call of Juarez: The Cartel tried to move Call of Juarez into modern Mexico. It was rubbish, so Techland are sensibly returning to ye olde wild west setting that made the first two games stand out. Ubisoft have rustled up a live action trailer and a few screenshots for the next title in the series: Call of Juarez: Gunslinger, set in the dusty salons and baked tundra of the American frontier. An unreliable narrator will tell the tale of your duellist's dealings with famous gunslingers like Billy the Kid and Jesse James, according to Joystiq. Also, you'll be able to shoot men in the head for points. That's justice in the Wild West. As great poet and performer William Smith once said "To any outlaw tryin' to draw, thinkin' you're bad / Any draw on West best with a pen and a pad / Don't even think about it, six gun, weighin' a ton / 10 paces and turn just for fun, son / here are some pictures of a videogame:"
[bcvideo id="1226226421001"] Baba ba babaaba. BABA BA BABAABA! It's a new Battlefield 3 trailer (You can tell from all the angry machine noises) and this one's about... skydiving!

Most importantly Battlefield has multiplayer skydiving, so you can plummet to the earth in formation with your friends! Now if only there weren't nasty men trying to shoot you while this happened...

There's troubling news on RPS regarding a potential security risk associated with Ubisoft's Uplay plugin software that could allow hackers to remotely install programs onto your PC. The problem seems to centre around the Uplay browser plugin, which is easily disabled. In Chrome, search for about:plugins and disable Uplay. In Firefox, head to tools - add ons - plugins and then disable Uplay and the UPlay PC Hub. To be safe, you might want to consider deleting Uplay and related programs from your PC. The problem is detailed on Hacker News, which exposes a backdoor thread that allows a website to install and run programs remotely. We've contacted Ubisoft for comment and they're "looking into" the problem. We'll update with any further statements. Meanwhile, here's a list of Uplay associated games that you might want to steer clear of until we know exactly how serious the problem is. Update: Ubisoft have sent over a statement saying that they've patched the problem out. Here it is:
In an interview with MCV, Ubisoft’s Stephanie Perotti discusses the potential to sell more than just Ubisoft games on the newly relaunched Uplay store. The new store includes social features, the ability to purchase DLC content by completing Achievements, and everything else you'd expect - and unlike most of Ubisoft's recent work, it doesn't take a month to get to the PC shelves. But would you want to make it your shop of choice?
Silas Greaves is probably full of shit, but that’s OK. He’s a bounty hunter with a million stories to tell, and happy to share them for a whisky or five. Like the times he rode with Billy the Kid, or when he won the praise of Injun magic men, or that shootout he had with Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (simultaneously). In short, tales of hanging out with just about every celebrity in the Wild West... and convenient excuses for why nobody can quite remember seeing him there. This isn’t just a framing device for Gunslinger’s nine missions, but a big part of what helps this downloadable budget title wash away the foul taste of Call of Juarez: The Cartel. As expected, it’s a linear shooter set in a romanticised version of the Wild West (which the game itself at one point admits is complete balls). It’s also a shooter Greaves and his audience comment on throughout, the narration routinely changing the world to fit the story on the fly. At one point, for instance, you fight through a mine full of dynamite that only an idiot would go into with guns blazing. “That’s why I didn’t,” rasps Greaves, rewinding the story to tell it ‘properly’.
Planetside is going to be enormous. Its battles will rage across entire continents and support hundreds of players at a time. It will have tanks, ships and, according to the man on our cover, gatling guns with laser sights for precision mass-destruction. You can read all about it in our preview in the latest edition of PC Gamer UK. It hits store shelves today. It's also available online, digitally through Zinio and Apple Newsstand, and it should already be with subscribers now. There are few things less subtle than a gatling gun with a laser site, but Max Payne is one of them. We catch up with the gravelliest hero in gaming on his new adventures in Max Payne 3, chat to Ken Levine about Bioshock Infinite, get rich quickly and horribly in Runescape, play Diablo 3, take a look at the new Syndicate and much, much more. We also give away a load of free stuff. This month our issues come with codes for six free games on Good Old Games, £20 worth of items in Runes of Magic and free money in any Sony MMO.
