Bullet Run (previously known as Hedone) is a free-to-play multiplayer online first person shooter with a twist – the setting is a futuristic TV show, as seen in the movie The Running Man or in the MMO game S4 League.
Created with the Unreal 3 engine, this is a FPS where contestants (up to 20 players per battle) fight in reality TV show Bullet Run. Using live ammo, they are able to reincarnate into a new body, thanks to the Synth technology. The arenas are of the decayed and rusty kind, places like a prison, abandoned ships and more.
In Bullet Run contestants battle for fame, disregarding everything else. Customization is part of the game, with many options both for the character and arsenal, along with some taunts to aggravate the other players. Acony, the developers of Bullet Run, claim that every item, from clothes, weapons and technology may be purchased with in-game currency, avoiding the ‘pay to win’ pitfall from other games.
