Bulletstorm, developed by People Can Fly in conjunction with Epic Games, involves 26th century space pirate captain Grayson Hunt as he leads his crew into fatal consequences after a failed attempt for reparation. Hunt and his cohort (including Ishi Sato, Hunt’s cyborg AI partner in the campaign) defected from their previous work as soldiers oblivious to the fact that they were assassinating innocent people for corrupt officials.
