Electronic Arts and Microsoft have teamed up to announce the “Epic Edition” of Bulletstorm, exclusively for Xbox 360, which includes guaranteed 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.”
The “Epic Edition”, which will retail at $59.99, includes early access to the Gears of War 3 beta and more. It’ll give players 25,000 additional experience points when playing online and visual upgrades for their leash, Peace Maker Carbine, boots and armor.
For the same price as the game would go for without the extra content, why the heck wouldn’t you buy the “Epic Edition”?
