It’s the demo PC users didn’t think they’d see, but Epic’s Mark Rein casually mentioned on Friday that a Bulletstorm demo for the formerly beige boxes is in the works.
“Bulletstorm PC demo is in the works!” Rein wrote in a twitter post,“Won’t make it in time for ship date but should be available shortly after.” This puts the release sometime after 22 February.
It also means Epic/People Can Fly were probably planning a PC demo all along and used the lack of it to whip up a little extra coverage in the gaming press. Damn you Rein, you once again.
Luckily (unluckily,) Bulletstorm will still be using Games For Windows Live, so PC users still have a legitimate reason to be miffed about something. Phew.
In other Bulletstorm media news, RockPaperShotgun has written a splendid rebuttal to the latest attempt by fringe right-wing website Fox News to smear videogames and all who play them.
