ShootMania Storm, storms onto Steam for fast competitive multiplayer
Ubisoft and Nadeo have released ShootMania Storm, an online multiplayer first person action game built from the ground-up for fast-paced competition and endless variation via intuitive content creation tools for users. ShootMania Storm is now available for personal computer via the game’s official web site and the Steam digital distribution service for $19.99.
“ShootMania Storm delivers on two fronts: incredible, fast-paced competition for newcomers and pros alike as well as easy-to-use creator tools that empower users with the ability to imagine, design and build their own worlds,” said Joshua Milligan, Senior Director, Online Strategy, Ubisoft. “ShootMania Storm revives the pure, skill-based competitive gameplay that help give birth to professional gaming as it is known today. And with its familiar controls and balanced playing field, anyone at any level can jump in, have fun and instantly compete against the best in the world.”
The release of the game follows a wildly successful open beta period in which hundreds of thousands of players from around the world competed for global domination on the game’s ladder ranking system. In addition, players took advantage of the intuitive game editing tools, creating more than 35,000 custom maps and dozens of unique modes.
To celebrate the global launch, Ubisoft’s Nadeo studio and the ShootMania community are hosting “ShootMania 4 All,” a worldwide launch party bringing together ShootMania Storm’s first players. North American fans will be able to join “ShootMania 4 All” servers to connect with Launch Party online. For more information players should visit http://www.maniaplanet.com/
