Call of Juarez: Gunslinger trailer asks questions of freedom, answers with bullets

Call of Juarez Gunslinger

After last week's sombre reflection on the nature of shooting some folks, today we get to see Call of Juarez: Gunslinger's Silas Greaves philosophising while shooting some folks. You just don't get that combination of high-minded rhetorical questioning and quick-draw action outside of the Wild West. Although maybe Greaves would find an answer to his ponderings on "what freedom means" if he'd only stop shooting people long enough to hear their reply.

From the highfalutin press notes, we learn that Greaves encountered many of the era's most enduring legends. He's like Forrest Gump crossed with Clint Eastwood. "Silas Greaves has some incredible stories to tell, and players will live them while he is narrating. During his life he was a part of many historical events and an actor in as many legendary gunfights. He lets players face off with some of the West's most notorious names, such as Pat Garrett, Jesse James, Butch Cassidy, and many more."

He eventually joined full-time as a news writer, before moving to the magazine to review immersive sims, RPGs and Hitman games. Now he leads PC Gamer's UK team, but still sometimes finds the time to write about his ongoing obsessions with Destiny 2, GTA Online and Apex Legends. When he's not levelling up battle passes, he's checking out the latest tactics game or dipping back into Guild Wars 2. He's largely responsible for the whole Tub Geralt thing, but still isn't sorry.
