A new trailer for Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition, People Can Fly’s refurbished re-release of the 2011 shooter, has rolled out today, courtesy of publisher Gearbox Software. If, like me, you fondly remember Bulletstorm not just for its inventive style-based score system but its, let’s say, colorful dialogue and visual style, then you’ll no doubt have already been aware that the remaster is on its way to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC this April thanks to the official announcement last year, but for those not familiar with the title and its setting, today’s story trailer (above) should help to remedy that somewhat.
Boasting hi-res textures, increased polygon counts, improved audio and smoother frame rates, it certainly looks as if People Can Fly is pulling out all the stops for the remaster, which will also have 4K support for those who pick it up on Ps4 Pro or PC. Just to hammer home the fact that Full Clip Edition is intended to be Bulletstorm‘s definitive edition, all previously-released DLC will be included on the disc, as too, will some brand new content.
Six new maps have been put together for Echo Mode, with a new method of play, Overkill Mode, also set to join it. The latter will unlock all weapons and Skillshots unlocked throughout the course of the campaign from the start, so you’ll be able to complete subsequent playthroughs as the overpowered former assassin you were always destined to be from the get-go.
Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition is out April 7 on the aforementioned platforms and, due to People Can Fly’s partnership with Gearbox, you’ll have the chance to play as none other than Duke Nukem himself in place of protagonist Grayson for the entire campaign. Original dialogue has been recorded especially for the Duke’s appearance too, so it’s definitely not just a last minute addition. I have to say, considering the potty-mouthed nature of Bulletstorm, Duke Nukem’s inclusion seems like a perfect fit for the character.
Let’s hope the painful memories left behind by Duke Nukem Forever can be wiped away with this performance.
