Bulletstorm Co-op Cancelled

Posted By | On 18th, Feb. 2011 Under News

Epic Games and People Can Fly tried to add co-op into their upcoming shooter, Bulletstorm.

However, the co-op feature was cancelled after the developers realized that it “broke down” the gameplay.

“First off, it was in there at one point and it actually worked, but we found that the game shifted from being this kind of puzzle shooter into essentially this downhill skiing simulator, where people were seeing how fast they could get to the bottom of the mountain.” said Cliff Bleszinski.

“Really the game just broke down, and it was a situation where people would race through the game, ignoring the vistas and they wouldn’t set up as many skillshots.” he explained.

“So when we made the decision to go straight campaign, it gave us the chance to put in one-offs that could only be controlled by one player, like the giant robotic dinosaur, where you don’t have to worry about Player 2, or slow motion one-offs that could only occur in a single player game.”

Do not confuse the campaign co-op which was cancelled with the multiplayer co-op, multiplayer will still feature co-op in which you and up to three other friends can take on waves of enemies.

Bulletstorm is set to be released on February 22 in the US and February 25 in Europe.

    lol i think its too late now to let us know since it comes out next week .. but no1 cares for campaign co op .. so at least theres some type of co op involved

    Sounds like they couldn’t keep the framerate from collapsing because of all the madness on the screen. That’s okay though because some developers would just put it in and do a half ass job, at least they tried and realized this could still be a pretty good ass game without the co op. Of course the online community would of loved to kick ass through the campaign with a buddy, but maybe the sequel they’ll be able to do it. Aqua Out!!
