Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition is a remastered version of the 2011 title Bulletstorm, which was released on last-gen consoles. The remake brings updated models, environments, and animations, with smoother framerates and 4K support on PS4 Pro and PC. It includes all DLC from the original, as well as new content such as Overkill campaign mode and new Echo maps.

Bulletstorm is known for its liberal use of profanities and crass humor reminiscent of the Duke Nukem franchise. The game rewards creative, over-the-top kills with currency used to purchase weapons, ammo, and upgrades at dropkits scattered throughout the planet. With its fast-paced gameplay and mindless violence, Bulletstorm has been called a throwback to the straightforward and unpretentious old-school FPS games.

While this city of the Dark Elves is supposedly impregnable, a diplomatic summit offers Styx a chance to slip in unnoticed. There, he learns that elves and dwarves, who are enemies of old, are joining forces against the goblins.
