New Trailers for FULL THROTTLE and BULLETSTORM Remastered Editions


Two games are getting the remastered treatment in 2017: Lucasarts' classic point-and-click adventure "Full Throttle" and the zany first-person shooter "Bulletstorm". While the former is really old, released in 1995, and would definitely require some updated...everything, the latter was released in 2011 and I thought it aged pretty well in the last five years. I guess I was wrong.

The "Full Throttle" remastered edition will feature new 2D and 3D art, remastered audio, the option to switch back to the "classic" look, and mix-n-match audio, graphics and user interface options. Extra features include a concept art browser and a commentary track by the game's creators. The game will be released sometime in 2017.

The remastered version of "Bulletstorm" will be titled "Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition" and will offer all the previously released content to which it will add a new "Overkill Campaign Mode" with unrestricted weapons, six new levels for the score-based Echo Mode, as well as the obligatory updated graphics and audio. And, for Duke Nukem fans, the developers have added the possibility to play through the whole campaign as Duke with complete voiceover recorded by Jon St. John as an add-on, which will be free if you pre-order. The game will be available on April 7th, 2017 for PS4, PC and Xbox One owners.

Check out the trailers after the jump.

Official Synopsis
"Originally released by LucasArts in 1995, Full Throttle is a classic graphic adventure game from industry legend Tim Schafer, telling the story of Ben Throttle, butt-kicking leader of biker gang the Polecats, who gets caught up in a take of motorcycles, mayhem and murder.

Now over 20 years later, Full Throttle is back in a remastered edition that features all new hand-drawn and 3D high-resolution artwork, with remastered audio and music.

Players will be able to switch back and forth between classic and remastered modes, and mix-n-match audio, graphics and user interface options to their heart’s desire. Also included is a concept art browser with work from Peter Chan, and a commentary track with the game’s original creators.

Full Throttle was the first game with Tim Schafer as sole project lead, and a much beloved cult classic! This special edition has been lovingly restored and remade with the care and attention that can only come from involving the game's original creators. It’s headed to PS4 in 2017."

Official Synopsis
"Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition brings the critically-acclaimed cult-classic shooter to PlayStation® 4, Xbox One™ system, and PC in stunning ultra-high resolutions. Updated with hi-res textures, increased polygon counts, sterling audio, and smoother frame rates—all running in up to 4K resolution on PC and PS4™ Pro—this new version of Bulletstorm comes with all of the previously-released add-ons along with all-new content.

Step into the boots of Grayson Hunt after a crash landing on an abandoned resort planet forces him to make a hard choice: survival or revenge. An exiled member of the elite assassin group Dead Echo, Grayson’s reckless desire for vengeance finds his crew stranded on Stygia where he can finally confront the commander behind his betrayal—or get his team off the planet alive."
