What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“ShellShock Live has been community driven from the beginning. Early Access gives us the opportunity to build the game while receiving feedback from players to ensure that SSL grows to fulfill its potential.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to keep the game in Early Access until all bugs are squashed and all planned features have been implemented and tested. We estimate an early 2017 release, but because ShellShock Live will grow and evolve throughout development, we can't be sure of the exact timing.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version will evolve into the Full Version with consistent updates containing new features and fixes. Even after release, we will continue to update the game regularly with fresh content and features based on community feedback.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“ShellShock Live is already a fully functional game jam-packed with content. There are currently over 200 weapons, 100 maps, and 80 single-player missions. There are probably a few stubborn bugs here and there but we'll iron those out as Early Access progresses. There are also several planned features that we haven't had a chance to build yet.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price will likely stay the same upon release, but may change slightly if significant new features and content give more value than we had expected. We're dedicated to keeping the price low and the game accessible to everyone.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Community feedback is huge. We encourage you to get involved on our forum ( and our subreddit ( as well as here on Steam!”

About This Game

ShellShock Live is a strategic online multiplayer artillery game currently in active development by kChamp Games.

Fight Alongside your Friends (Or blow them up... we won't judge!)

Take part in action-packed 8-Player team and free-for all battles. Tactical gameplay is essential to victory, while numerous distinct tanks, weapons, items, maps, and play styles make every match unique.

Way Too Many Weapons

It's a bit ridiculous. Unlock, upgrade, and master over 200 unique power-packed weapons, from the intimidating 'Seagull' to the ever-powerful 'Mega-Nuke'. The best part is that we're building and adding more daily.

Loads of Modes

Armored carnage must get old after a while, right? Wrong. Unique game modes keep things fresh and give you the opportunity to demolish tanks in a multitude of ways.

Become the Best There Ever Was

Earn XP to level up and become king of the battlefield. Play through 100 unique ranks, each with their own rewards and unlocks. Global leaderboards and rankings keep things spicy.

Upgrade Everything

And when we say everything, we mean everything. Upgrade your tank. Upgrade your skills. Upgrade your items. Upgrade your arsenal. All 200+ of the game's weapons can be upgraded to more powerful versions.

Nature Doesn't Stand a Chance

Fully destructible terrain creates a dynamically changing battlefield. Earthquakes and other natural disasters keep you on your toes (just like in real life!)

(Very) Active Development

We've been cranking out ShellShock Live updates with new features and awesome community suggestions almost daily. Check out the Announcements section for full release notes, or join the community on the Forums.

Non-Evil Developers

In-game content is earned by playing, not paying. No microtransactions, no premium version, no bull. Once you own the game, you own everything.
