Hold on to that copy of Bulletstorm--publisher Epic Games and developer People Can Fly have some DLC in the works. In fact, the duo has already detailed the first bit DLC, a joint called “Gun Sonata.” In a nutshell, it’s a $10, five-map download that’ll hit PSN, XBLM, and PC later this spring.
Three of those maps, the lovely Sewers of Stygia, Hotel Elysium, and Villa, are exclusive to Anarchy mode. If you're not familiar with the game, Anarchy is basically Bulletstorm's answer to Gears of War's Horde mode. Up to four players work together (and for themselves) as they attempt to reach specific score thresholds. The twist, here, is the choice of what you do with your spoils: score points for personal upgrades or for the round progression.
The other two maps, Crash Site and Guns of Stygia, are Echo mode maps. You may remember this mode from the game's demo--it’s all about reaching the highest score possible in one-off single-player challenge levels. Epic shot over some descriptions of these two maps specifically, adding that Crash Site is where “soldiers must deal with ramifications of their crashed ship,” and that Guns of Stygia is a place where a “captive commando escapes from an enemy prison.”
In addition to these maps, Gun Sonata will also bring two Leash enhancements: the Pulp and the Flamingo. Epic isn’t getting specific about these quite yet, but I imagine that you already get the idea what these might be.
Who's enjoying Bulletstorm so far, and who's ready to pony up for some new maps?
