EA And Epic Unveil A Storm Of Bullets
Late last year, we learned that Epic Games had teamed up with Painkiller developer People Can Fly to work on an intense FPS known as Bulletstorm.
And now it's official. This should be one very entertaining FPS and we can't wait to sample the...um...storm of bullets. The game takes place in the immediate future - the year 2011 - and revolves around a group of elite soldiers known as Dead Echo. Apparently, the sinister-sounding name is in place for a reason, as two members, Grayson Hunt and Ishi Sato, soon realize they're manning guns for the wrong side. Shortly after, they're betrayed by their commanding officer and are exiled to a distant planet in the farthest reaches of space. There, the two will run into plenty of nasty, otherworldly beings but such enemies won't stop them from getting revenge... Said Epic Games President Dr. Michael Capps:
"Bulletstorm is the kind of game we love to make because it's pure, unadulterated entertainment. People Can Fly has created a wildly fun first-person shooter that looks gorgeous running on the latest Unreal Engine 3 technology, and the skillshot system is a welcome addition to the genre. We can’t wait to see how everyone reacts to seeing Bulletstorm."
EA also appears to be excited about the project; the collaboration of Epic and People Can Fly should prove to be pretty explosive. We don't have a released ate just yet but we might get one at E3, and there's a good chance Bulletstorm might be on store shelves before the year is out. Personally, I just want to see some early screens; perhaps it'll have to do battle with Platinum's Vanquish for FPS supremacy.
