First Impression: Bulletstorm Demo (Gameplay Video)

Welcome to the little shop of horrors of video games!  DigitalDpad / STLgamer go through this demo with a semi fine-toothed comb.  That way, those neon brutes feel every tooth!

Bulletstorm for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 will be out on Feb. 22nd.  For now, the demo is available.  For all those people that either can’t get enough of the game that you have to watch while away from your controller, or you don’t have access to Xbox Live or the Playstation Network then you’re in luck!  Look below for our video.

Bulletstorm Demo Coming

EA and People Can Fly announced today that a Bulletstorm demo will be reelased on Xbox Live and PSN.  The demo will be available on January 25th on Xbox Live worldwide and in North America for the Playstation Network.  Europe’s Playstation Network will get the demo on January 26th.

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. 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.

The Bulletstorm demo will give PS3 fans a chance to try before you buy the Bulletstorm Limited Edition that “will also offer additional bonus content in-game”.  And Xbox 360 fans will be able to have a look at the game before dropping down a pre-order for the Bulletstorm Epic Edition and gain access to the Gears of War 3 Beta.

Bulletstorm releases on February 22, 2011 in North America and February 25, 2011 in Europe for the PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360.

Bulletstorm Epic Edition $59.99, Early Access to Gears of War 3 Beta

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.
