People Can Fly (they of Painkiller) are going to be producing a new Unreal 3-powered shooter called Bulletstorm. It’s the subtle tale of two futuristic mercenaries stranded on a world of flesh-eating mutants. You can expect some fancy shootin':
Players step into the role of Grayson Hunt complete with an arsenal of over-the-top combat moves and outrageously large guns. Bulletstorm’s array of distinct ‘skillshots’ produces unprecedented levels of frantic gameplay and yell-inducing satisfaction. The skillshot system rewards players for inciting mayhem in the most creative way possible. The more insane the skillshot, the more points players collect to upgrade their character and unlock weapons, which then allows them to execute even more creative moves and exaggerated skillshots.
So yeah, it’s looking Old Skool, like poppa used to play. Bulletstorm going to precipitate in 2011.
