Ubisoft announced today that upcoming online FPS ShootMania Storm will now be released on April 10th, allowing the development team time to rework some features due to community feedback.
“Nadeo’s model of development has always been to be very close to the community,” said Anne Bondel-Jouin, Managing Director of Nadeo Live. “Following the release of the Beta 2 in December, we received a tremendous amount of information from the very active ShootMania community. For a living, online multiplayer title like this the work is never done, but these extra few weeks will allow us to polish the game further and release it to the level of quality we think our players deserve.”
Starting February 12th, the game will enter Open Beta to allow even more pre-release feedback for a higher level of polish.
