Ever since it was officially announced back in December, Gearbox Software’s Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition, a re-release of the original 2011 shooter from People Can Fly, has been building up steam – in its own fun, silly little way. But now, a new trailer has arrived, putting a much more serious face on the franchise than usual.

In the new trailer, we get to know more about Grayson Hunt, the leader of a team of mercenaries who are called upon by a corrupt Dead Echo General who orders the assassination of a target. Following that, all hell breaks loose for his team, with one of his partners having to be revived using electronic components, and a strange female soldier showing up out of nowhere who may or may not have ties to the whole story.

The trailer’s a bit odd, as it’s a change of face from the usual fun-loving antics we’ve come to expect from Bulletstorm, going for more of a Gears of War-style approach instead. (Seems like a coincidence, since both games were under the Epic Games banner for some time before going their separate ways to Gearbox and Microsoft, respectively.)

Nevertheless, the trailer’s debut has also broken down some new components that will be included in the game, including a new Overkill campaign mode, new Echo maps to test your skill levels, and remastered visuals and sound effects that take advantage of today’s hardware.

You can check out the trailer below, and don’t forget that pre-ordering Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition will provide you access to an interesting bonus – being able to play as the legendary Duke Nukem in the single player campaign.

Okay, that’s enough seriousness, Gearbox – the next trailer better go back to “I’m gonna kill your dick.”

Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition releases on April 7th for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
