Gearbox Software Announces Bulletstorm Plans For PAX East

by Robert Workman


Gearbox Software has been hyping up Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition since its initial announcement in December, and for good reason – it’s the return of one of this previous generation’s best first-person shooters. And now, the developer is making big plans for next week’s PAX East event.

Through this blog post, the developer has confirmed that the game will be at the event from March 10th through the 12th in Boston, with players being able to try it out. Better yet, the Duke Nukem portion of the game, which is available to those who pre-order the game, will be playable, so fans can see just how well he fits into the Bulletstorm universe.

Gearbox has also promised a “Bulletstorm Skillshot Showdown”, where players can compete for a part of $10,000 in prizes. There will also be live Shoutcasts over the course of the weekend, featuring “prominent hosts” and “Gearbox Publishing team members!”

Finally, the team has promised big things during its Sunday morning panel at the show, set to take place at 10:30 AM EDT. No word yet if it’ll be live-streamed, but attendees won’t want to miss out on new details from the team at the event. Could we possibly hear about…Borderlands 3?! Who knows?

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