The retail version of Bulletstorm will ship with three massive game modes, a pulp sci-fi single-player campaign, multiplayer and Echo mode – An arcade twist on the campaign in which scores are tracked and compared whilst player progress through the campaign. The Bulletstorm demo will give players a small tasty slice of Echo mode, in which players traverse a collapsed building on the deadly paradise planet Stygia as ex-Dead Echo leader Grayson Hunt.
Bulletstorm’s unique “Skillshot” system encourages players to “Kill with Skill” finding the most stylish, imaginative and over the top ways to take down enemies, more than 45 skillshots have been included in the demo.
