PS3 and Xbox 360 gamers have impaled, kicked, shot and generally had a fun time for a month in the Bulletstorm demo while PC gamers were moping in the corner. Thankfully, Epic Games has announced a cure: there’s a PC demo in the works!
Company co-founder Mark Rein announced through Twitter that despite it being made, the demo won’t ship until after the full game is released today.
The PC demo will feature the same content as the console version that offered a glimpse of the single-player campaign.
Meanwhile, Best Buy is offering a special deal for those who get the Epic Edition of the game: you can get Gears of War Triple Pack for an extra $5 only. The pack includes the two installments in the series and a token to download the additional DLC.
