Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood, isset across the American Civil War, the Wild West and deepest Mexico, where two wanted brothers prepare for war over the legendary Gold of Juarez.

Grab your guns, from pistols to Gatlings and use the gun-slinging skills of Ray and Thomas to cut down your foes. Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood is sure to scratch the itchiest of trigger fingers.

Heroes over Europe is a World War II air combat game that lies firmly in the arcade category. Follow the stories of three allied pilots and their actions in the war, from the invasion of France to the devastation of Berlin in 1945. Navigate through fourteen missions and engage in dogfights, bombing runs and other aerial combat manoeuvres. You'll need to protect squadrons of bombers, torpedo ships at sea, wipe out AA guns on the ground, eliminate enemy aces from the sky and drop bombs on groups of tanks. Fight for air superiority in multiple online modes for up to 16 players and wrestle for control of the European Theatre of War across more than 15 missions, from over the cliffs of Dover to the skies above Berlin. 

James Cameron’s Avatar: The Game is the official video game based on the highly successful film. The video game will take you deep into the heart of Pandora, an alien planet that is beyond imagination. You will encounter the Na’vi, Pandora’s indigenous people and discover other life forms the likes of which have never been seen in the world of video games before.  When conflict erupts between the RDA Corporation, a space-faring consortium in search of valuable resources, and the Na’vi, gamers will find themselves thrust into a fight for the heart of a planet and the fate of a civilization.

Mastertronic’s Product Director Neil McKenna comments“We are delighted to be working with Ubisoft once again. Their reputation for quality titles is second to none and we relish the opportunity to bring these games to a new audience. All three are very different games, but all are of the highest quality and we look forward to announcing more releases in partnership with Ubisoft very soon.”
