Bulletstorm Released, DLC Plans

As noted on the People Can Fly Blog, Bulletstorm is now available for Windows, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 in North America, and this first-person shooter PCF co-created with Epic Games is due in Europe later this week. Meanwhile the game is available in U.S. and Canadian stores and to customers in those territories via Direct2Drive, Impulse, and Steam, and a playable demo for the PC edition is expected shortly. There's also a Bulletstorm Launch Trailer, which offers a cinematic to introduce the game and its characters, featuring a gritty voiceover and even a Cool Guys Don't Look At Explosions moment. The press release announcing the game's availability also reveals plans for the first Bulletstorm DLC, which is called the Gun Sonata pack, though it will not contain any new guns (nor sonatas). What it will offer is three new Anarchy multiplayer mode maps, two new Echo mode maps, two new whip enhancements, along with new challenges. The announcement mentions the DLC will be available in the spring for the console editions of the game, and we were able to confirm with Electronic Arts that it's coming to the Windows edition as well. They were not able to say when it will be released, but told us the price tag will be $9.99 USD. Here's a bit on the game:

Set in the 26th century on Stygia, a planet where paradise was lost and has since been overrun with rampaging freaks, flesh-eating plants and creatures the size of skyscrapers, Bulletstorm tells the story of Grayson Hunt and Ishi Sato. As ex-members of an elite military force called Dead Echo, Grayson Hunt and Ishi Sato are mercenaries on the run across the galaxy, until they are stranded on Stygia, where their main objective is to survive long enough in order to exact revenge on the one person responsible for their plight. In Anarchy multiplayer mode, teams of up to four players fight together to survive waves of blood-thirsty mutants while scoring Skillpoints in order to advance. In Echomode, Bulletstorm tracks and compares players’ scores through locations found in the campaign. Through the Skillshot system, Bulletstorm provides stylish, imaginative ways to perform spectacular kills with some of the most unique weapons ever seen, including the Boneduster, a four-barreled shotgun that packs an incredible punch, to the Headhunter, a sniper rifle that allows player to guide the bullet as it reaches its target.

The biggest knock I've read is the plot, with some reviews really knocking it. I'm not too surprised - the plot of Painkiller was pretty damn dumb.

Ok, in its defense Painkiller was meant to be nothing more than a modern day recreation of DOOM. It's plot was just to give you an excuse as to why you were killing a few thousand demons every stage and why you had awesome weapons and magical abilities. Nothing more.

What's next, you criticize Serious Sam for having a shoddy plot? If you want a story in your FPS then Half-Life or Deus Ex or System Shock 2 is waiting for you, have fun.
