Epic Games, People Can Fly and Electronic Arts today revealed the ship date for Bulletstorm, a hot new original property at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2010. Set to release on February 22, 2011, Bulletstorm is a blood symphony that combines outrageous gunplay with unique kick, slide and leash mechanics. Players learn to ‘kill with skill’ as they slaughter waves of mutated enemies to rack up points and unlock weapons.
Set in a futuristic utopia, an elite peacekeeping force thwarts the rumblings of civil war. But deception within the ranks has caused two members of the most feared unit, Dead Echo, to strike out on their own. Now, washed-up mercenaries, Grayson Hunt and Ishi Sato, are stranded on the abandoned paradise planet of Stygia surrounded by hordes of mutants and flesh-eating gangs. They survive on two objectives: get off the planet alive and exact revenge on the man who sent them there.
Developed by Epic Games and People Can Fly, the teams behind the award-winning Gears of War, Unreal and Painkiller series of game, Bulletstorm will be available for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system, the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system and PC.
