You step into the role of Grayson Hunt complete with an arsenal of over-the-top combat moves and outrageously large guns. The skillshot system rewards players for inciting mayhem in the most creative way possible. The more insane the skillshot, the more points players collects to upgrade their character and unlock weapons, which then allows them to execute even more creative moves and exaggerated skillshots.
Bulletstorm ships with three game modes: the pulp sci-fi, single-player campaign; Anarchy multiplayer mode; and Echo mode, an experience that tracks and compares players’ scores while they play through locations found in the campaign.
On January 25, players will be able to download a demo via the Xbox Live Marketplace or PlayStation Store, and this will introduce 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.
In fact, Bulletstorm has a host of crazy weapons that allow you to be creative with your killing. Check out this video...
From highest score to total number of skillshots performed , players can compete with their friends for bragging rights in Echo mode as they decimate enemies with over-the-top combat moves. The Bulletstorm demo also allows players to unlock platform-specific upgrades* to use in the game’s Anarchy mode, from the Crimson Leash to Stealth Armor, when they purchase the full game.
The Bulletstorm Limited Edition will be available for the PlayStation and PC and will also offer additional bonus content in-game. Bulletstorm will be available on Feb. 25, 2011 in the UK.
