Call of Juarez 2: First trailer

Prequel to feature co-op, interesting multiplayer modes

Ubisoft's released the first trailer and gameplay details for Wild West prequel, Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood.

The follow-up has you and a partner playing as the McCall brothers (yes that means online co-op) as you battle through the Wild West against a renegade Apache Chief, a greedy Mexican bandit, a vindictive Colonel, and others, all driven by "greed with moral disregard." Oooh-arrrgh.

Ray and Thomas have their own unique abilities, says Ubisoft. These include the use of a lasso or dynamite, the ability to dual-wield guns or snipe with a long-range carbine.

Online multiplayer sounds interesting as well; as well as the usual deathmatch modes, a new Bounty system increases the bounty on the heads of players with the most kills. Get rid of the deadliest and you'll increase your bank roll.
