SAN FRANCISCO â€“ JUNE 12, 2007 â€“ Today Ubisoft, one of the world's largest video game publishers, announced that Call of Juarez(TM) for the Xbox 360(TM) video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and for the PC has shipped to retailers nationwide. Call of Juarez, developed by Techland, is rated "Mâ€ for Mature and has an MSRP of $59.99 for Xbox 360 and an MSRP of $49.99 for the PC.
Call of Juarez provides the only Western first-person shooter experience on Xbox 360 and PC, capturing the brutality and ruthlessness that turned the
American frontier into a theater of war. Players will experience legendary Wild West action including duels at high noon, gruesome shootouts and barroom brawls. The intense multiplayer modes pit bands of money-hungry outlaws against one another through a variety of game options and terrain. An authentic Wild West single-player campaign puts players into the world of both the hunter AND the hunted, each equipped with contrasting weaponry, styles and motives.
"What better setting for an FPS than the Wild West?â€ said Tony Key, vice president of marketing at Ubisoft U.S. "Guns, horses, gold, dynamite â€“ Call of
Juarez has it all.â€

scenarios ever experienced, including saloon brawls, train robberies, old-time shootouts, and bare-knuckle fights.
