Sierra™ today revealed a major title update for its critically acclaimed retro arcade shooter, Geometry Wars™ 3: Dimensions, developed by Lucid Games.
Geometry Wars™ 3: Dimensions Evolved will update the core game with a super state of new challenges and features. It adds 40 new stages of fast-paced neon action to Adventure mode, including new boss battles, 3D grid shapes and gameplay types, as well as the mighty Sweeper drone and Detonator super ability. It also revises the previous level gating system, making it much easier for players to progress and unlock their favorite modes.
Moreover, Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions Evolved includes a number of improvements for die-hard Geometry Wars™ fans.
