• Ubisoft announced earlier today that Call of Juarez: The Cartel is now available in stores throughout North America. When a Mexican drug cartel bombs a US law enforcement agency, the US government puts together a special task force to bring them down. Enter LAPD cop Ben McCall, DEA agent Eddie Guerra and FBI agent Kim Evans, each of whom bring their own special skills, personal demons and unique story to the game. As one of these protagonists, players will fight to dismantle the Cartel through the streets of Los Angeles to Ciudad Juarez.

    Call of Juarez: The Cartel features a campaign experience that can be enjoyed with up to two friends; partake in punitive raids, tough interrogations, car chases and more. Adding depth to the three-player cooperative mode is the new “co-opetition” system. A mix of “cooperation” and “competition,” co-opetition has players not only working together, but against each other in secret missions and challenges. Players who successfully complete these tasks are rewarded experience points that can be used to level up and unlock more powerful weapons. Expose a partner’s dirty secret and the spoils are yours!

    The game also includes two multiplayer modes that are full of features to provide an all-encompassing experience. Team Death Match pits cops against criminals. This mode has a host of rewards and challenges that put a strong emphasis on teamwork. Objective-based Mode is a mission-driven struggle in which two sides fight to complete a series of goals. Both modes can accommodate up to 12 players for six versus six matches.
