Epic and EA are set to unleash there latest creation in 2011, coming from People Can Fly ( a Epic Games studio) this new first person shooter is named Bulletstorm which tells the story of a futuristic confederation protected by an elite band of merceneries called Dead Echo.
When Dead Echo memebers Grayson Hunt and Ishi Sato learn that they have been working for the wrong side they are betrayed by there commander and exiled to the far reaches of the galaxy where they find themselves on an abandoned paradise type planet, which is now filled with mutants and flesh eating gangs. This set the stage for the game as you fight to escape the planet and ultimately seek revenge.

“Bulletstorm is the kind of game we love to make because it’s pure, unadulterated entertainment,” said Epic Games President Dr. Michael Capps. “People Can Fly has created a wildly fun first-person shooter that looks gorgeous running on the latest Unreal Engine 3 technology, and the skillshot system is a welcome addition to the genre. We can’t wait to see how everyone reacts to seeing Bulletstorm”
“We’re very excited to work with Epic Games and People Can Fly on this new project. The first time we laid eyes on Bulletstorm, we instantly knew this is going to be the next big hit from these two great studios delivering yet again an entirely new experience for shooter fans,” said Senior Vice President and General Manager of EA Partners”
