Via a press release, People Can Fly, Epic Games, Electronic Arts and Microsoft Game Studios announced the ‘Epic Edition’ of Bulletstorm – the new action shooter from the makers of the Unreal Tournament and Gears of War series of games.

The unique thing about this edition is that those that purchase the ‘Epic Edition’ will be guaranteed early access to the Gears of War 3 beta.  You can pre-order now to reserve your copy of the ‘Epic Edition’ which will be available on February 25, 2011, only for the Xbox 360 and while stocks last.

“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.”

In addition to early access to the beta, the ‘Epic Edition’ gives players bonus in-game Bulletstorm content when playing online, including 25,000 experience points, visual upgrades for their iconic leash, deadly Peace Maker Carbine, boots and armor.

The game is due for release on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC on February 22, 2011 in North America and February 25, 2011 in Europe.
