Bulletstorm Demo Coming Soon
Is Bulletstorm more than just fart jokes and grenade launchers? Now you can find out for free as the game will be getting a demo on PSN and XBL come January 25.
"The Bulletstorm demo introduces a slice of Echo mode in which players traverse a collapsed building on the deadly paradise planet Stygia as ex-Dead Echo leader Grayson Hunt," says publisher Electronic Arts. "Players will utilize the “Skillshot” system in Bulletstorm as they crush enemies in increasingly creative ways to rack up points using an arsenal of powerful weapons, from a futuristic assault rifle called the Peace Maker Carbine, to the Flail Gun, which fires two grenades linked by a chain, and the Screamer, a powerful revolver that turns enemies into human fireworks."
"From highest score to total number of skillshots performed, players can compete with their friends for bragging rights in Echo mode as they decimate enemies with over-the-top combat moves using some of the most innovative weapons ever seen in a first-person shooter," the press release continued. "With more than 45 skillshots in the demo, players are encouraged to “Kill with Skill” in Bulletstorm, finding stylish and ever imaginative ways to take down anyone that stands in their way. The Bulletstorm demo also allows players to unlock platform-specific upgrades* to use in the game’s Anarchy mode, from the Crimson Leash to Stealth Armor, when they purchase the full game." Bulletstorm is shaping up to be the Crackdown of 2011, solidified by the inclusion of the Gears of War 3 beta. February's looking pretty meek in terms of great games, so Bulletstorm should be able to carve out a nice little home for itself.
