LOS ANGELES--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Epic Games, People Can Fly and Electronic Arts Inc.
(NASDAQ:ERTS) today revealed the ship date for Bulletstorm, a hot new original property that has already
topped many ‘Most Anticipated’ lists 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. Bulletstorm will be playable at E3 in EA’s booth South Hall #1601.
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.
Taking on the role of Gray, players perform over-the-top combat moves with some of the most uniquely innovative
weapons ever seen in a first-person shooter. Every enemy presents a new opportunity for stylish and ever
increasingly bloody ways to take them down. The game’s signature ‘skillshot’ system guarantees unprecedented
levels of frenetic gameplay rewarding players for inciting mayhem in the most creative way possible. The more insane
the skillshot, the more points players collect to upgrade and unlock weapons, which in turn allows them to execute
even more inventive moves and exaggerated skillshots.
