Keep Calm & Keep your Powder Dry!



Earlier this month we opened up pre-orders for ShockRods around our live beta testing. Now the beta testing is done and the findings are being acted upon, it’s a good time for us to update you on what’s been happening since.

Firstly, we’d just like to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who not only took part in the test weekends but also dropped by to check out the game at EGX Rezzed in April. We loved chatting to you all and hearing all the great things you had to say about ShockRods.

We had an amazing response from players during the beta, and the hugely helpful feedback and suggestions have continued to come in since – mainly through our dedicated Discord channel. This input has been invaluable to us, allowing us to tune and tweak the gameplay. As part of this process, we’ve made the decision to move the release of ShockRods to late summer 2019. This will allow us to incorporate all the relevant intel that’s been gathered, and address everything that came from the betas and subsequent discussions.

The extra time will ensure that we deliver the very best version of ShockRods possible – which has always been and remains our number one goal.

Once again, thank you everyone for the incredible support! And we look forward to seeing you soon in the ShockRods battle arenas!

“ShockRods, a multiplayer arena shooter about murdercars. In 6v6 or 12-player free-for-all, they’ll whizz around and blast each other to pieces. Carfights!”

About This Game



Stainless Games are back with a classic arena shooter with a twist.

Stainless Games are back with a brand new IP featuring all the over the top, in your face vehicle combat that you have come to expect from this world class dev studio. ShockRods is a 6v6 or 12 player free-for-all arena shooter, bringing all the blisteringly fast-paced action, mayhem and overpowered weapons you would expect.  

ShockRods draws inspiration from the classic “kill or be killed” arena shooter greats of yesteryear with over the top weapons, explosions and insane mobility, but with a twist - the ShockRods! These customisable, technologically advanced vehicles, nimble but tough, are equipped with multi-directional boosters and the ability to double jump, allow for truly thrilling and action-packed gameplay.

It’s easy to learn, but hard to master - a high octane, thrill-a-minute ride!



Environments
ShockRods features 4 stunning, highly varied environments, designed to allow players to exploit their vehicle’s manoeuvrability; with more to come as the game evolves through Early Access. These range from natural looking desert and woodland areas, to man made battle arenas, specifically designed for 6v6 or free-for-all carnage and mayhem.



Game modes
ShockRods brings 3 classic, tried and tested game modes to the table: Death Match, Team Death Match and Capture The Flag. Plus, enjoy the full combat no-holds-barred Ball Mode - work as a team and protect the ball carrier as they target the opposition goal, or simply reduce your opponents to scrap metal and walk the ball home.



Customisation
ShockRods allows for full customisation of your hulking war machines. Change your car type, colour, wheels, decals and patterns. Choose from a host of taunt FX and sounds, and much more, to show off your flair and style as you dominate your opponents. All the content is cosmetic and can be unlocked through currency earned in game based on your performance in battle.



Weapons and Power-Ups
ShockRods brings a full arsenal of explosive and somewhat unconventional weapon types to annihilate your opponents. These will be scattered across the environment for you to collect and put to good use. Want a Gatling Gun? Rocket Launcher? Grenade Launcher? We got you covered. Not your style? Try the Balloon Cannon, Freeze Gun or Bulldozer power ups!
