Sony Online announces new free-to-play FPS, Bullet Run photo



Sony Online Entertainment has revealed Bullet Run, a free-to-play first-person shooter due to be released on PC later this summer. Players are contestants in a near-future reality game show who must gun each other down with style to earn fame, which in turn unlocks new customization options. Up to twenty players will compete in either Team Deathmatch or "Dominion" game modes across six maps.

Sounds to me like it's The Running Man, which I'm totally okay with. Developed by ACONY, Bullet Run sounds like it's attempting to keep pace with the multiplayer shooter genre with its feature list, which notes the thousands of possible accessory combinations for each weapon, an active reload mechanic and "Kill Skills," abilities and buffs earned through skilled play.

You can register for the beta of Bullet Run right now on the game's official site, as well as check out a first trailer for the game. Could be fun, but I'm not ready to get too enthusiastic until we have a chance to give it a play. I think it's a safe bet we'll get that chance once E3 kicks off.

Bungie doesn't think you should be disappointed by the lack of exploration on Earth in Destiny

For fans concerned that the amount of areas available to players in Destiny, Bungie has spoken out in a bid to reassure the masses. And their idea of reassuring those who participated in the Destiny beta is to basically pop o...more

Unreal Tournament footage: 'We have a game now'

I came in expecting little from this latest Unreal Tournament footage considering how not far along the game was in the last video, but this one is much more worthy of your time. Movement mechanics, levels, weapons, and team...more

Just how tactical is Rainbow Six: Siege?

Rainbow Six: Siege has some single-player component, but the E3 reveal was multiplayer-focused, and that's probably going to be the best bit of it.  Unfortunately, the carefully manicured, staged banter of the...more
