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!”

v0.9.6.6 Released!

Today's update makes a number of behind the scenes changes, many in the server code:

- Fixed a bug in the server providing better in-game stability
- Increased wait time before trying Connection Method 2 to 45s, which should help the 'logged in elsewhere' issue
- Increased stability of server-side weapon simulation
- Optimized error reporting
- Fixed a bug in the server code where player timers were not disposed of correctly
- The server now deals with storing weapons in a more robust manner
- Added increased clarity to a specific connection error message
- Server CPU limits reduced, which will lead to less disconnects

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.

Now before you judge me for Not recommending this game please, give me the chance to explain.

SSL (Or Shellshock Live) is a fantastic game, hand down it's great and I clearly remember the browser game I played for over a decade ago. If you're at all even the least interested in this game I strongly suggest buying it!

''Why did you not recommend it then you ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥!''

Well it's because of a very game breaking bug this great game has, it has been a problem the developers simply dosn't seem to be able to fix. However it dosn't affect everyone, it affects an unknown amount of people but for the people who does have this bug the game is flat out unplayable.

It's slowly getting know as the connect bug or the infinet connect bug. In short it's simply your game that disconnect every few minutes (Even in singleplayer), deeming the game unplayable.

If you experience this bug don't get your hopes up for a fix, no fix have been found and the developers have tried to fix it since it first arose.

I played the various incarnations of ShellShock Live on Armor Games back in the day. I get a good amount of nostalgia out of this.

This is such a good game. It requires some skill to aim and become a sharpshooter. Really easy to learn gameplay with lots of things to unlock and to play with. Overall a great game! I do greatly reccomend it.

Very good game, only problem with it being people say you're using a 'ruler' and leave as soon as you hit them with the sniper/arrow weapon.

I just bought this game after seeing it on youtube, and I was blown away by what it had to offer. I never expected it to be this fun. I'm only at 6.5 hours, but I haven't gotten bored at all.

To all my Rocket League friends - please check out ShellShock Live! I am certain you will like it, at least in part, because it shares many similarities such as having metric tons of unlockables (although these are functional here), a single player mode, an online multiplayer mode (with a huge community), and really addictive fun gameplay.

Essentially, this is Scorched Earth from yester-year on steroids. You can play with a controller or keyboard and mouse. Its simple to learn, yet impossible to master. Tons of really cool, funky weapons. Skill goes a long way here, too.

Pros:
+Music and graphics are very good.
+Tons of functional unlockable weapons.
+Easy to learn, difficult to really ever master.
+Addictive.
+Great online fun!

Cons:
-Definately more of a coffee break game, as its best played in shorter sessions (IMHO same as Rocket League).

Totally worth full price. I don't know why I ignored this game for so long lol.

A lot of people try to compare this game to older or other games... This game is completly different. While making this review I almost have 100 hours in the game, but still haven't unlocked even close to all the waepons. While this is a good game there are a lot bug fixes and a lot of updates so keep up with them.

I r8 this 8/8 would r8 again
