EA announced today that they are releasing a Bulletstorm Epic Edition that will be available only on the Xbox 360 for $59.99 when the game releases on February 22nd, 2011. Oh yeah, and the Epic Edition will grant you early access to the Gears of War 3 beta. Yeah, that’s right. Double barrel shotguns anyone?
Mike Capps, President of Epic Games, says, “Epic is poised to break new ground in 2011 with Gears of War 3 and Bulletstorm. With these two highly anticipated triple-A experiences comes a unique opportunity to do something to really excite players, and that’s what we intend to accomplish with the support of Microsoft Game Studios and EA. This is for the shooter fans.”
I guess this is why Gears of War 3 got pushed back, strategy. Let’s just hope we don’t have another day one debacle like the Halo 3 beta that was accessed through Crackdown.
Bulletstorm Epic Edition will be limited, so you better go out and pre-order it now if you want access!
Bulletstorm is being developed by People Can Fly and Epic Games and is published by EA. The game will be released on February 22nd, 2011 on the Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and the PC.
