Before there was Dog the Bounty Hunter – whose reality show ruined the fascination of being a bounty hunter – there were bounty hunters in Western and Star Wars films. Boba Fett immediately comes to mind when you are thinking of a bounty hunter every dreams of becoming. But the bounty hunting business will shift towards the Wild West as the latest mini game for Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained will allow you to play as one of the characters in the film. Hit the jump for more.
You can find this game on the film’s official website, Unchainedmovie.com. There you will play Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz), a bounty hunter on the trails to collect his next bounty. Oh you won’t be just ranging these bounties, you’ll be shooting them dead in their tracks. There are five bounties in total, each bounty you kill will reveal a new higher-priced bounty and new locations. The game is pretty simple actually.
The story is that after you have freed Django (Jamie Foxx) from slavery, you’ll receive a letter from a townsman desperate to rid themselves of the filth that consumes his town. The town is not to far from Candieland, the plantation owned by the sadistic proprieter Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio) and where Django’s wife Broomhilda (Kerry Washington) is possibly being kept against her will.
If you feel that you are not up the to challenge, you will have an opportunity to train your slick hands at a training ground not to far from town. You will shoot five bottles and be timed. Obviously this will have no affect on your status, but it does help to have quick hands. So take the challenge, kill your bounties, and share your scores with your friends on Facebook. Show them why you have the fastest guns in the west.
Directed by Quentin Tarantino, Django Unchained stars Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, Samuel L. Jackson, Jonah Hill, and more. The film opens in theaters on December 25th of this year.
