Epic Games have released yet more new videos for the upcoming Bulletstorm, accompanying an announcement
from publisher EA that a playable demo of the game will be made available in Australia and New Zealand from January 26th 2011 on XBLA and PSN -- pitched as a perfect way to spend your Australia Day.
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.
Depressingly however, it looks as though PC players will once again miss out on the demo action, despite Epic Games still supposedly being a prominent member of the PC Gaming Alliance
With that gripe acknowledged, Bulletstorm is still due to launch on all three platforms on February 24th 2011 and you can find out more info about the Echo and Anarchy modes in this new developer diary video
