The marketing campaign for upcoming FPS Bulletstorm
returned to normal today with Epic Games releasing a trailer showcasing some of the available skillshots. This somewhat normal trailer, featuring gameplay footage, follows on from the recent trailer parodying another game
, and others that can only really be described as short (but weird) skits with Cliff Bleszinski
and Mike Capps
The "Bulletstorm: Skillisode #1" trailer gives you footage explaining how to achieve the Gag Reflex, Mercy and Acid Rain skillshots.
There are 135 different skillshots in the game, so this trailer is barely scraping the surface. For those of you who can't watch the video, this is a quick summary of the skillshots:
• Gag Reflex - skillshot #38 - kill shot to the throat
• Mercy - skillshot #43 - a "nut shot", followed with a kick to the head
• Acid Rain - skillshot #62 - leash your enemy skyward, and then blast with a shotgun in mid-air
The most observant of viewers will have noticed that the trailer advertises a demo for the game. This demo will be arriving on January 25th, so there's less than two weeks left to wait.Bulletstorm
is due to be released on February 22nd in N America, and February 25th in Europe.
