Bulletstorm was something of a goofy romp when it was originally released back in 2011, but you’d never know it from the brand new Story Trailer that Gearbox and People Can Fly unveiled today for Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition. Even the official plot description from the publisher sounds oh so serious now:
In Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition, players 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 blind 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. Decimate throngs of Stygia’s mutated inhabitants, performing masterful kills throughout the single-player campaign — or one of 30 competitive score-challenge and 12 co-operative multiplayer maps — using the game’s unique “Skillshot” system, which rewards players for executing the most creative and deadly kills imaginable.
In development for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One, the remaster will include “hi-res textures, increased polygon counts, sterling audio, smoother framerates,” and an option for 4K resolutions on the PC and PS4 Pro. The Full Clip Edition edition will also include all of Bulletstorm’s previously-released downloadable content.
Players looking for Bulletstorm’s goofy sense of humor will still get it if they pre-order the Full Clip Edition and activate the Duke Nukem’s Bulletstorm Tour expansion. The special mode will replace Grayson Hunt with Duke Nukem, and feature a new script voiced by the legendary Jon St. John.
Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition will be released on April 7.
