...can keep this game alive and maybe even get new players to play the game!
(I know this is pretty much pointless to request such things but better trying than being 100% sure that nothing will change. 0.001% probability of getting this wish fullfilled is better than if you do nothing and have a 0% probability as a result of that)
I don't like "begging for something" but this game is just too good to stay in its current state (concerning popularity and playercount).
To show that at least a part of the small Bulletstorm fanbase could have some interest in free custom content/maps/mods and an editor I've opened the above poll as some kind of "signature collection".
Therefore I'm asking all Bulletstorm fans out there: Vote on this poll and show your interest! This game has to be kept alive!
Nothing is lost yet, this game is truly a masterpiece which people should not forget about.
It shall not live on in our minds as a commercial flop which completely died after like 2 years after its release (note that just about one year passed and the forum is basically dead and you're sometimes waiting for minutes until you get thrown into a lobby with other players in Anarchy). It would be such a shame!
I know the Bulletstorm subforums get visited like once in a week by not even a handful of gamers (which - sadly - is like a mirror of the playercount of this game) but free custom content is like a magnet for players - especially online players! It brings brand new, user-generated stuff to the game, the story can be expanded, coop support can be modded (which I would totally love to see and would even pay for), a balanced PvP multiplayer so many have been begging for could be created, etc. etc. etc..
I'm aware that it conflicts with Microsoft's GFWL system (which is somewhat based on paid DLC) and I'm also aware that Epic and Microsoft are somewhat "partners".
Could there - by any chance - be some compromise made to allow an Unreal Editor and mod support for this game?
It has so much potential and is a very underrated game. The only thing this game needs to stay alive is the fanbase's creativity,
which they could use to create content for it - for free - to keep players playing the game.
It's one of the reasons UT99 is still alive. It never becomes a boring game because of exactly that variety the players bring to the game with their self-made stuff (and because of its balanced competitive multiplayer - which then again could be modded for Bulletstorm if we, the gamers playing this game, were allowed to do that).
Here an idea how such a compromise could look like:
To be able to play user-made content or mod yourself you would have to own the latest/all DLCs.
This might even push the sales of the DLC if people are very interested in an editor and custom content for this game. And: it's just a one-time investition (unless there will be more DLCs which I doubt).
As I said: Just an idea.
Please, at least consider it PCF, Epic, whoever has the rights to decide about this.
