Check out some new Game Informer scans of Bulletstorm, Epic's and People Can Fly's new Sci-Fi FPS slated for a 2011 release.
looks awesome! Personally i wish it was TPS
looks like they took a bunch of games and mixed them together, I dont know if this is good or bad but it looks generic. will wait for a vid
I'm not getting hype for it yet. Then again im not a fan of sci-fi games. Is this another post apocalyptic game?
Graphically it looks like Gears of Borderlands. And if it's anything like those 2 games then it should be a really good game. No co-op kind of stinks, but oh well.
@MariusElijah Uncharted 2 says hi.
@1.4 - Your trolling makes no sense. On topic - I think it sounds pretty good, but I don't think Epic will have much to do with it. Seems like this is the Painkiller devs game, and they have had a little help from Epic and stamped their name on it in order to get more sales. The enemy in that first pic actually looks like an enemy from Gears as well, so maybe they borrowed some Gears assets?
@1.5 I think the relationship here is that People Can Fly makes the game in general, and Epic makes sure the game is as polished as it can be.
I can't believe I actually agree with Too Pawned. Anyway, the game looks great, sucks I have to wait until 2011 though...
This is Epic's other game reveal.(didn't see what platforms the game is on) and to those that are interested: Splinter Cell Conviction scored a 9/10.
It's on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3
Splinter Cell 9/10! That's nice to hear. Can you point out what the highs and lows were according to the review?
They said in the splinter cell review that it was a good mix of action and stealth. There was scant a complaint except for overuse of the Black & White effect (the color is desaturated when you're in stealth mode).
GRAPHICS: The environments are buautifully rendered, and Sam's animations are killer. Black & White effects are used to freely, resulting in a detachment from the world. SOUND: Sam's gravelly tones are fueled by emotion and backed by a suprisingly score. PLAYABILITY: I never once had to fuss with the controls. The stealth mechanics are easy to embrace, and the gunplay offers razor-sharp precision. ENTERTAINMENT: A Satisfying conclusion to Sam Fisher's talecoupled with one of gaming's most rewarding co-op experiences. Replay Value: Moderately High Second Opinion 9/10
Interesting art style looks kinda cell shaded
It looks rather good but i'm not blown away. Don't like the setting and the artstyle and design it's starting to look really generic. It's like a RAGE/Gears/Borderlands all together : \ Anyway i will wait for gameplay but i'm keeping in mind that this is not from the Gears team like they want people to believe. This is done by Epic/People Can Fly studios responsible of Painkiller and the Gears of War PC port..and its a rather smaller team but let's see what they can do.
Images should be back up and running now.
Brilliant that Epic haven't managed to dumb down the team that made Painkiller, at least not yet anyway.
Interesting quote: "the Uncharted 2 guys mentioned that the train sequence almost killed them because it turned out to be way more difficult than they thought it would be. We have way more of these" Sounds like they're after a cinematic feel. It's actually a really good read for a first reveal, lots of info and most of it sounds great.
I wonder what they meant. Either they have way more epic moments and epic set pieces than Uncharted 2 or they had way more moments that almost killed them during the development process.
@above that is a good question i was wondering the same thing.
I think you are setting your self for a fail if you compare yourself to Uncharted 2, never the less as if you are going to top it. Uncharted 2 had record amount of GOTY won, just saying.
Sweet title for a game.
It sounds like a B-Movie title.
and sounds stupid.
Another first person, post-apocalypse, shooter where the enemies are mutants, and the hero gets powers to go along with his guns. Yeah...
looks like rpg-ish
will be craptastic like Gears.
Unless Epic has tainted them, this is the great studio which made Painkiller.
I'm not a fan of the art style at all. But I'd like to see how this turns out (and oddly enough, Vanquish!)
Sweet. We need more Sci Fi FPS. To many simple minded war shooters out there...MAG, SOCOM, COD, BF, KZ... Sci Fi shooters bring something the other games lack, and that is creativity. Can't wait for more info.
Killzone 2 would be considered "hard sci-fi", but I digress. You're bleeding everywhere.
or does it somewhat look surprising good for an unreal engine... well i am looking forward to a video gameplay to make my verdict.
Unreal Borderlands anyone? ;P
