Ubisoft has announced Call of Juarez: Gunslinger, a new entry in their cowboy series, this time for Xbox Live Arcade, PSN and PC.

Unlike Call of Juarez: The Cartel, which taking place in the modern day, was somewhat of a reimagining for the series, a move that left many a series fan disgruntled, Call of Juarez: Gunslinger is however a return to the old west roots of the series.

It stars a mysterious old cowboy, who is telling the story of his life. You’ll play out some of his memories. Throughout the game, there’s cameos from famous figures from the period, such as Billy the Kid and Butch Cassidy.

The game also has a scoring system, which better rewards you for headshots and such, whilst there’s also a XP system implemented, which up on leveling up, allows you to learn a skill from one of a series of skill trees improving your shooting or your melee for instance.

Call of Juarez:  Gunslinger is set for release next year.
