Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

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 (http://shellshockliveforums.com/) and our subreddit (http://www.reddit.com/r/shellshocklive) 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.

I know alot of you out there will think that this game is just simple, boring and not worth the money. Well you're wrong, this game is like drugs, you'll have an addiction to it as soon as you play it. And with nearly 200 hours of my gameplay in ShellShock, I still didn't unlock all the weapons available.
I highly recommend that you try this game, because it's worth every penny of it.

Honestly, a really fun game to play with your friends, or just anyone in general. The community is full of awesome people, and the gameplay can sometimes be hilarious. 10/10 would buy again.

Originally as a kid i played web version of this game. The diffriences between this and Shell Shock Live 2 version are:
-Faster leveling
-Better graphics
-No ads
-Its not pay2win
-Insane amount of weapons
-Singleplayer missions
-Playing with bots
-Daily win spin

I think this game is very great. I spent 5 hours, and i love it. By the way, my first spin from daily win was 100 coins XD

I bought this game because I was interested in it since I found this remake exists and of course, because of nostalgia.
I must admit, I thought it will be just a casual experience, because you know, old school originals can't usually be replaced.
To this I must say, I was very pleasingly surprised, because the game is even more fun than I imagined.
After playing it for over 1 hour with my cousin, he went off and I decided to play "solo".
When you meet good people (and I don't mean skilled), this game gets even more hilarious than usual. Chatting with them in this game makes it even more fun and entertaining, not mentioning the fact that it looks like those little tanks are talking!

Also, this game is about grinding, but making some kind of progress with your little deadly buddy may keep you interested in playing and playing as well, until you realize it's 2am and you just don't know how it happened.

Only thing I would like to see fixed is that sometimes you just get disconnected from the game servers and this might ruin the fun a bit. But what the hell, it's still in early access and besides this, this game is great!

The game shows potential to be very good once released. The only thing which i feel ruins the game is people who do not know the different beween 90 degrees and 10 degress. The price is more than appropriate for the content in the game, great value for money! I do think that the singleplayer game mode is a little easy. SInce the multiplayer mode can be slightly cancerous at some times, a decent single player mode would be usefull.
