Bulletstorm, an original game from the people who brought you classics such as Gears of War, Unreal Tournament and Painkiller, is set to hit stores in 2011, Epic Games announced Monday.
“Bulletstorm is the kind of game we love to make because it’s pure, unadulterated entertainment,” Epic Games’ Dr. Michael Capps said. “People Can Fly has created a wildly fun first-person shooter that looks gorgeous running on the latest Unreal Engine 3 technology, and the skill shot system is a welcome addition to the genre. We can’t wait to see how everyone reacts to seeing Bulletstorm.”
The game brings a fresh perspective to first-person shooter action with its’ signature “kill with skill” game play. It details the story of Dead Echo, a futuristic confederation protected by an elite band of mercenaries. When Dead Echo members Grayson Hunt and Ishi Sato learn they’ve been working for the wrong side, they’re betrayed by their commander and exiled to the far reaches of the galaxy. Surrounded by hordes of mutants and flesh eating gangs in an abandoned paradise, Grayson and Ishi find themselves with two objectives: get off the planet alive and exact revenge on the man who sent them there.
Poised to be one of next year’s most anticipated original games, Bulletstorm will be available for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system and PC.
