Fortnite cracks the sky with gigantic rocket; probably not good

Fortnite: Battle Royale is no stranger to royal displays of extravagance. Heck, that good spacedaddy Thanos ran amok in there for a while. But today, we've witnessed a Once In A Game experience: they shot a rocket into the sky and it made the sky not work anymore. We're not sure what it means, but there's plenty of video of what went down, and certainly…

Fortnite devs address server issues, discuss new modes

Deceptively cutesy battle royale game, Fortnite, just got its fourth ‘state of development’ announcement, courtesy of the Epic Games website. The post explains where the team’s continued efforts at improvement will be focused, which includes social media integration, server stability and a new time-limited game mode. Read on for a breakdown of the key points.

Bulletstorm devs People Can Fly making mysterious new game with Square Enix

It is a shame that, right after releasing the romper-stomper of a shooter that is Bullestorm, Polish studio People Can Fly spent the next six years working with Epic Games on Fortnite and various Gears of Warses. That's all fine but I'd really like to see something new from the studio which created Painkiller and Bulletstorm. Well! Square Enix have announced that they've formed "a…

Bulletstorm getting 4K rerelease with Duke Nukem mode

Bulletstorm might not have sold enough copies to ever get a sequel, but the new console generation mean that it's getting the HD treatment. Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition [official site] promises hi-res textures, increased polygon counts, smoother framerates and support for 4K resolutions, as well as some new levels and modes.

People Can Fly Flies Again, Still Owns Bulletstorm

Polish studio People Can Fly made well-received OTT shooters Painkiller and Bulletstorm, then they got bought by Epic and became Epic Games Poland, and now suddenly they're independent and are People Can Fly again. I'm genuinely distressed that they didn't take the opportunity to name themselves People Can Fly Again. No cast-iron reason has been given for the regained independence and there is, as yet,…

Have You Played… Bulletstorm?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. You could just shoot a man to death in Bulletstorm, but it'd reveal a horrible lack of imagination. The game would sneer and dole out a measly 10 murderdollars. Try harder. Slide into a man to launch them up in slow-mo then shoot…

Epic’s Fortnite Still Exists, Now At Bulletstorm Dev

It has been far, far longer than a fortnight since we last heard even the slightest peep about Epic's Fortnite. Many fortnights, in fact - enough to bridge the gap between last year's PAX Prime and this very day. During that span, renowned puppy eater and fearless chainsaw-gun entrepreneur Cliff Bleszinski departed the studio for somehow greener pastures and also another Gears of War game came out…

BulletStorm’s Coming: Vanishing Of Ethan Carter Detailed

It would be fair to say that - before today - we knew almost nothing about former Bulletstorm lead Adrian Chmielarz and co's "weird horror" departure into the land of indie-dom The Vanishing of Ethan Carter. Now, of course we're in the dark on Ethan himself. He's vanished! Like a magician or your phone when you've removed it from your pocket and freak out because you…

People Can Buy: Epic Gobbles Up Painkiller Developers

This headline feels like it's dropped in from from 2007. Back then Epic put a pile of money under a giant washing basket. Then Mark Rein waited with a length of string tied to a stick and hoped for a developer to wander underneath. Painkiller devs People Can Fly did, enticed by the money and banquet that Rein had seeded his trap with. But when…

RIP, Waggleton P. Tallylicker: Bulletstorm 2 Canceled

Today I come to you with a heavy heart and a higher-than-average tolerance for dick jokes. Bulletstorm - perhaps the manliest manshoot of them all, depending on how you measure these things - is officially dead. Apparently, People Can Fly's cartoonishly profane murder symphony didn't fly with Epic brass, so now Grayson Hunt is getting mad skillshots on angels. Somewhere, a giant remote-controlled dinosaur is…

Bang: Bulletstorm Gun Sonata DLC Released

Did you like Bulletstorm? Did you enjoy the multiplayer modes? So did I! I can't imagine anybody's still playing them, but that's for Epic and not me to decide. They've just released the Gun Sonata DLC pack, offering three new maps for Anarchy, the game's arena co-op point-scoring mode, and two new maps for Echo, the game's corridor-shooter point-scoring mode. For this they are charging…

PC Getting Bulletstorm Demo After All

Remember this spurt of controversy back in January when we heard that the Bulletstorm demo would be gracing the Xbox Box and Sony Playingstation only? Turns out the PC will be getting a demo after all. Epic vice president Mark Rein has tweeted that the PC demo is in the works, and should be available "shortly after" the game's release this Friday. Strong! Just to…

Rips & Tears In Rain: Bulletstorm Hands On

Following the recent wash of ingenious marketing and controversy it’s a little tricky to remember that Bulletstorm is simply an FPS from the Painkiller developers, coming out in less than 2 weeks. Will it be any good? At EA’s invitation I sat down for a lengthy hands-on. That’s the perfect set-up for a dick joke, by the way. My restraint knows no bounds.

Will Bulletstorm Murder Your Children? (No)

Yesterday Fox News asked the headline question, "Is Bulletstorm the Worst Video Game in the World?" Which is spectacular. It's a quite remarkable piece of writing, worthy of our own Daily Mail. And why is it the WORST GAME IN THE WORRRRLD? Because they've named some of the Skill Shots with sexual innuendos. Which, they absolutely astonishingly claim, causes rape.

1.25 Million Download Parody AdverGame

The Bulletstorm tweeting-thing announced that People Can Fly's free Call Of Duty parody, Duty Calls, has been download 1.25 million times over the weekend. The brief game, which mocks the "realistic" shooter genre, was an advert for Bulletstorm's more science fictional approach on the macho manshoot. And, well, it was actually pretty funny. As adverts go, it was one of the more inventive ones we've…

Bulletstorm To Feature Constant Online DRM?

EDIT: Stand down! People Can Fly's Creative Director, Adrian Chmielarz, has tweeted saying that Bulletstorm only requires a constant internet connection for installation and online play. This simply looks like an incredibly poor choice of words on EA's part, since none of the other "digital" versions on the disclosure page list a persistent internet connection as a requirement. Phew. For posterity, I've re-posted my original…

Bulletstorm Skillisodes Have A Stupid Name

Bulletstorm isn't getting a PC demo and we are ANGRY, yes, but then they release a trailer with a line like "pucker your butthole!" and all is forgiven. Now Epic have started releasing short videos detailing the various skillshots integral to the game, and they're calling these skill-related episodes... skillisodes, a word that I can barely type without going and washing my hands. But then…
