Good news for Bulletstorm and Gears of War 3 fans! EA today announced the Bulletstorm Epic Edition, which will include early access to the Gears of War 3 beta.
“Epic is poised to break new ground in 2011 with Gears of War 3 and Bulletstorm,” said Dr. Michael Capps, president of Epic Games. “With these two highly anticipated triple-A experiences comes a unique opportunity to do something to really excite players, and that’s what we intend to accomplish with the support of Microsoft Game Studios and EA. This is for the shooter fans. Source
I assume that the Epic edition could be limited to avoid an overrun of the beta. The Bulletstorm Epic Edition also includes bonus content. You get additional 25000 XP and a lot of upgrades for various ingame items (boots, armor, carbine).
Bulletstorm will be available Xbox 360, PS3 and PC on February 22, 2011. You can already preorder Bulletstorm on Amazon.com
We will be adding any preorder links for the Epic Edition as soon as it gets available on Gamestop or Amazon.com
