Ubisoft has announced details for Call of Juarez: The Cartel, which is set for a release this summer. Developed by Techland, Call of Juarez: The Cartel keeps the Wild West theme still intacted while gamers will go on an adventure set in present day. Following a storyline which involves a fictional drug cartel bombing a U.S. law enforcement agency, killing hundreds. The U.S. puts together a special task force to hunt down the cartel. The task force includes: Kim Evans (a gang-affiliated street kid turned FBI agent), Eddie Guerra (a DEA agent with a gambling problem) and Ben McCall (an LAPD detective and relative of Ray McCall from the original Call of Juarez).

Along your endeavors from Los Angeles through Arizona and New Mexico to Juarez, Mexico. Some of the key features of Call of Juarez: The Cartel include three player online co-op with Kim Evans, Eddie Guerra and Ben McCall. Play through the entire campaign with each of the three characters; each with their own story and ending. Unload upon your enemies with a wide selection of weaponry such as pistols, machine guns, sniper rifles, anti-air weapons are just to name a few. You can also expect to participate in some punitive raids, witness protection missions, undercover missions and car chases.

Further information will be revealed once it becomes available, but as of right now I’m kind of thinking that I want to get in on some of this action. The “Announcement” Trailer can be found after the break. Hope that ties you down for a little while.
