Earlier today, Bullestorm became available on Steam, as well as from Newegg, Amazon, and—I expect—brick-and-mortar stores. What if you want to give the action shooter a try before forking out the $59.99, though? Well, fret not.
As Rock, Paper, Shotgun reports, Epic Games VP Mark Rein has revealed on Twitter that a demo of the game is on the way. "Bulletstorm PC demo is in the works! Won't make it in time for ship date but should be available shortly after," the Tweet says rather curtly. (Epic Games co-developed the game with People Can Fly.) Now, "shortly after" isn't much of a time frame, but it at least sounds like fence-sitters may not have to wait for weeks or months like with some other titles.
Either way, I think it's nice to see PC game developers not neglecting demos altogether. The folks at Epic and People Can Fly aren't the only ones. Last week, we found out that Crytek plans to serve up a Crysis 2 multiplayer demo on March 1, a good three weeks ahead of that game's full release.
