Bulletstorm, one of Epic Games’ most anticipated titles of 2011, has a demo that’s about to make you call out for work. The demo finds its way to Xbox Live on January 25th and Playstation Network on January 26th.

The demo reportedly contains 45 different skillshots that allow you to decimate your opponents in increasingly creative ways, or perhaps allow you to work out some of your frustration by punting enemies into cacti. Players can also unlock “platform-specific upgrades” that will come in handy in the full title’s Anarchy mode. Items like the Crimson Leash and Stealth Armor aim to help bring players into the new demo.

Of course, the Bulletstorm: Epic Edition (see the pun there,) on the Xbox 360 contains early access to the highly anticipated Gears of War 3 beta. The Playstation 3 and PC versions, titled Bulletstorm: Limited Edition, come with additional content that is decidedly not the Gears of War 3 beta and instead 25,000 Experience Points and a few different skins for weapons and characters.

Epic is certainly looking to bring in the new year with a bang, or perhaps a swift kick to the face.
