Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition Announced; Coming April 7, 2017
Tonight at The Game Awards, Gearbox announced Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition (which it will publish). In development, by developer People Can Fly, Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition is coming April 7th on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
The following description of the game accompanied the announcement:
Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition brings the critically-acclaimed cult-classic shooter to PlayStation® 4, Xbox One™ system, and PC in stunning ultra-high resolutions. Updated with hi-res textures, increased polygon counts, sterling audio, and smoother frame rates—all running in up to 4K resolution on PC and PS4™ Pro—this new version of Bulletstorm comes with all of the previously-released add-ons along with all-new content.
Step into the boots of Grayson Hunt after a crash landing on an abandoned resort planet forces him to make a hard choice: survival or revenge. An exiled member of the elite assassin group Dead Echo, Grayson’s reckless desire for vengeance finds his crew stranded on Stygia where he can finally confront the commander behind his betrayal—or get his team off the planet alive.
