Green Man Gaming and Stainless Games have launched the first major update for Shockrods since its launch last month. The update brings new vehicles, enhanced graphics and an entirely new map to the arena-style shooter.
With the 3 new fully customisable vehicles, there have also been enhancements to the visual effects, making the destruction look that much sweeter as you blast your way to victory. Also included is the new Stormdrain map, available on Death Match, Team Death Match and Golden Ram game modes. There’s also good news for players that prefer a controller over keyboard and mouse, as aim assist and button remapping is now implemented to keep an even playing field against more traditional PC gamers.
Other Enhancements include new AI behavior, improved matchmaking rules, and a UI change showing your current game mode on the scoreboard. Finally, improvements to the overall game experience have been added, with pickups now gravitating towards your vehicle, and the ability to take the ball/flag from your opponents by bumping into them.
This is just the first of many updates to come with further balancing, more maps and vehicles all on the roadmap for Shockrods’ future.
