Rumour: It looks like Bulletstorm is being remastered

Remember Bulletstorm? People Can Fly and Epic’s somewhat puerile shooter was crass and crude, but it was also a heck of a lot of fun. It may have often been vile on its surface, but it was a terribly underrated game, with cool combo-chaining mechanics and smarter design than its presentation would suggest.

It looks like it may be getting Remastered. It’s been suggested by Polygon video guy Nick Robinson that there’s a remaster on the way. In a flash drive from Xbox, he found a folder called Bulletstorm Remastered, which includes some tasty high-resolution screens of the game.

Here’s what we said in our review:

“I sincerely mean it when I say that you are fooling yourself if you think that Bulletstorm is just a dumb shooter with no real merits. What this game is, is a combination of great comedic writing, immaculate pacing, technical excellence, fresh gameplay and a whole bunch of very good design choices all shoved into one package, with each element playing its part without missing a beat.

Bulletstorm isn’t perfect and it’s not going to change your life forever but what it will do, is take anywhere between 7 – 15 hours of your life, and fill them with raw, unadulterated fun and if that’s not what gaming is about, then I don’t know what is.”

Hopefully, the remaster is there to remind people that the game exists, and pave the way for a follow-up – because there’s not been anything quite like it.

Take a look at the screens:

    Bulletstorm was fun. But it was one of those games, that after you finished it, you put it back in the cupboard and forgot about it.
    A remaster, in my opinion? Nah. Leave it on previous gen.

    I hope this gets remastered..the first game was absolutely hilarious and extremely fun..I always wondered why this game never really took off..the creativity and uniqueness of the game is unparalleled..

    Loved this game, this is basically the only type of FPS games i enjoy, thanks to War FPS gaming fatigue. That sniper with its curved bullets and BOOM!!! Happy Days.
