EA has given us a date when we will finally be able to give Bulletstorm a test drive. January 25 is the date that the much anticipated Bulletstorm will be released for demo on the Xbox 360 worldwide and the PlayStation 3 in North America only. For our brothers and sisters in the UK you will have to wait until January 26th for the demo to be released on the PlayStation 3. Here is a little more about the game.
Bulletstorm ships with three game modes: the pulp sci-fi, single-player campaign; Anarchy multiplayer mode; and Echo mode, a unique experience that tracks and compares players’ scores while they play through locations found in the campaign. 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.
Bulletstorm Epic Edition will be available for the Xbox 360 and grant early access to the Gears of War 3 beta as well as additional bonus content in-game. The Bulletstorm Limited Edition will be available for the PlayStation 3 and PC and will also offer additional bonus content in-game. Bulletstorm will be available on Feb. 22, 2011 in North America and Feb. 25, 2011 in Europe.
