Epic Games is at it again when it comes to fast-paced and ridiculous gunplay with their next release, Bulletstorm, the ridiculousness doesn’t end as it is also reflected upon the box art. Showing elements of the gameplay, like the light gauntlet that allows you to manipulate enemies, outrageously large guns, and other members of the mercenary unit, Dead Echo (of which protagonist Grayson Hunt is a part of).

The box art screams bad-ass in bulk, something Epic has been known to offer in their franchises, and when you see the box, you want to play it. Looking at the art automatically makes me want to be doing those same things, be it shooting, kicking a monster in the face, or throwing somebody a distance to shoot at them later. Take a look for yourself and see if you don’t feel the same way:

If you’re hungry for more, check out the screenshots of Bulletstorm and other gameplay images released earlier in the year, as well as the Bulletstorm debut trailer to really get your kill-happy, adrenaline-fueled bullet barrage.

I’ve always been pleased with the kinds of games Epic puts out. They all embody this hysterical level of machismo and masculinity (even in the women) that somehow just fits in the worlds they create. Combined with a healthy love of ballistic weapons and interesting concepts that go along with them (chainsaw bayonet, anyone?), it doesn’t seem like Epic will stop delivering top notch hardcore games for any gamer with a love for action.

With Bulletstorm, Epic’s going to be bringing back that feeling of playing Unreal Tournament, but in a single player realm, and that please gamers across the consoles and PC.

Bulletstorm will be bringing the pain, creatively on February 22, 2011 for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
