Written by: / / No Comments

Even though People Can Fly’s explosive first-person shooter is only due for release at the end of February, we’ll all be able to get a good taste of the over-the-top action when a demo for Bulletstorm releases on the PlayStation Network and Xbox LIVE Marketplace in the middle of next week!

On January 25th, PS3 and Xbox 360 owners will gain access to the Bulletstorm demo which provides a glimpse at one of the title’s game modes, Echo. This mode allows you to play and re-play a mission from the singleplayer portion of the game and rack up as many points as possible using the game’s unique ‘Kill With Skill’ Skillshot system.

Your score is then recorded and you’re able to compare that score to that of your friends. 45 Skillshots will be available in the demo, and those of you who download the demo and unlock platform-specific upgrades will be able to make use of those performance enhancers in the full version of Bulletstorm while playing the game’s multiplayer Anarchy mode.

Here’s what you can expect from the demo’s contents:

“The Bulletstorm demo introduces a slice of Echo mode in which players traverse a collapsed building on the deadly paradise planet Stygia as ex-Dead Echo leader Grayson Hunt.

“Players will utilize the “Skillshot” system in Bulletstorm as they crush enemies in increasingly creative ways to rack up points using an arsenal of powerful weapons, from a futuristic assault rifle called the Peace Maker Carbine, to the Flail Gun, which fires two grenades linked by a chain, and the Screamer, a powerful revolver that turns enemies into human fireworks.”

And if you’re keen to find out more about Bulletstorm’s unique set of weapons, as well as the characters and story of the singleplayer game, look no further than below:
