Bulletstorm goes gold

People Can Fly's first-person shooter/kicker heading to mass production; out on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC February 22.

Last week, gamers got their first hands-on time with People Can Fly's Bulletstorm with a demo on Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network. Now, Epic Games' Polish studio has announced it has finished work on the title.

There's a storm--of bullets--brewing.

According to a tweet from Bulletstorm's official Twitter account, the game has gone gold, three weeks ahead of its February 22 release date. The game will arrive on that day for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.

There is still some uncertainty surrounding digital copies of Bulletstorm. Earlier this week, the Electronic Arts product disclosure page for Bulletstorm revealed that digital copies of the PC iteration of Bulletstorm would require a persistent Internet connection.

Bulletstorm's lead producer Tanya Jessen told GameSpot that EA was working to clarify the issue, but no word has come from the publisher as of yet.

The Bulletstorm Epic Edition will bundle access to the Gears of War 3 multiplayer beta, which is pegged to kick off sometime this April. All preorders and most early copies of the game will be Epic Editions.

The demo was mad crazy fun. Hopefully, EPIC doesn't pull off their all to famous "T.otally U.seless "so called Updates" just like how they ruined Gears 2.

Persistant internet connection is only bad for those who pirate the game. Guess that means I will get this for Xbox when the price drops to 20-25€

Excellent demo but I don't know if I will get the game sure it has the replay factor but I just think it could get quite repetitive after a while

Yes absolutily pirating and ripping off software companies is definitally the software companies fault... Have some faith this is a good line up of producers so they won't mess up their game. Day one for me, first game of 2011.

If they're gonna humiliate the PC version like this don't make it at all and you complain why the sales are not so good well it's mostly your fault idiots

I have the Epic edition pre-ordered, I'm sort looking forward to this, but I'm not super excited for it and yes I have played the demo and I do think it's cool.

The whole points system is turning me off a bit (looks like it could get annoying), but I can't deny that the game looks good otherwise. Cool guns, some humor, and an awesome looking world.

hightly underrated game in a world that is drowning in military fps clones that take themselves too srsly. This and a few others should hold me over until Gears makes its well deserved comeback. Getting pretty damn sick of CoD campers and Halo fanboys.

Finally! Even Mikami went to their studio to see this in 2008, got inspired and released Vanquish before this. :lol:

Looking forward this game. I don't expect it to be astoundingly great, but it should be a lot of fun.

This game is pretty sick. I can't wait to see the co-op form of this game. Also, who isn't going to get this game, it has the Gears of War 3 beta.
