Call of Juarez released

Call of Juarez is a Western-themed first-person shooter from the Polish developer Techland.

First released for Windows in 2006, it was ported to the Xbox 360 on June 5, 2007. The North American release of the PC version is one of the first games to utilize Microsoft's DirectX 10. It was released on June 12, 2007.

Call of Juarez is loosely based on a number of Western movie hits from the last four decades, particularly the Spaghetti Westerns that became popular in the sixties and early seventies. The game features two different characters: Billy Candle, a young fugitive accused of murder and the Reverend Ray, an ex-outlaw who turned to religion, believing that God himself has chosen him to be the instrument of his wrath. He often presents himself as "God's wrath" and "God's right hand".
