Important ShockRods Announcement!

Hey ShockRoders!

We hope you have enjoyed the recent announcements showing off what we have under the hood of ShockRods, with the new maps and some insight into how ShockRods was developed.

We had previously announced that ShockRods will no longer be launching in May as an Early Access title but instead would be launching in Fall 2019 as a full release title. Not only are we still on track for the launch date, we have also managed to up the scope of what will be included in the full release. These changes in our launch strategy have resulted in us having to make some changes to the pricing model to bring these two things into line. We originally intended to launch on Early Access at £14.99 / $19.99 / €19.99 with possible extra purchasable content available post-launch. However, we have now adopted a strategy of a one-off payment of $24.99 / £19.49 / €20.99 for all the ShockRods content, with all planned future content being free.

Now that we have updated you on improvements to the game, new maps and how the game has been developed, what next? Well, our next update will confirm our localisation plans - the languages the game (and the Steam page) will support. After that, we have one last MAJOR and very exciting update that we hope to be able to announce in early September.

Once again we would like to thank all of you in the ShockRods community for your continued enthusiasm for the game and for helping to shape the development of ShockRods with the invaluable feedback from the beta tests.

Don't forget to add ShockRods to your wishlist!

We look forward to seeing you in the arena later this year!

Introducing the Western map!

Hey ShockRodders!

We are back with more exciting news, regarding a yet unseen ShockRods environment! Without further delay, we present to you the Western map, which has recently received a massive facelift.

During early development a level was built using a “Western” theme – it looked like an old-fashioned US town out in the desert, semi-abandoned. This level was constructed quickly and was largely flat, with the town in its centre. It looked pretty cool, and proved useful for testing various aspects of the game.

It became apparent in the latter part of development that this level lacked the 3D interest we’d identified as important to ShockRods levels, and tactical play was hampered by the player being able to see the entire map from most places. So, the map has been rebuilt, to retain the essence of the original level’s setting while introducing more interest, with varied routes and navigational options.

The idea behind this level is that our poor town in the sun-drenched desert sat directly on a fault line, and has been the victim of a devastating series of earthquakes, leaving the town in a state of wrecked abandon. Buildings have been buckled and broken, left to hang from precipitous rocky outcrops or cower under their looming shadows.

It’s the perfect location for your ShockRod to meet other ShockRods, for some crazy ShockRods shenanigans under the sun!

Stay tuned for another exciting announcement very soon!

“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!

ShockRods features 6 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 and the juggernaut inspired Golden Ram 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.

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!
