The demo (sized at around 1.5GB) offers the game’s Elite mode for free. Elite is a 1v3 mode in which one player has three armour points and a laser, while the team of three only have one armour point each and are armed with four rocket launcher shots.For victory, the solo player has to either kill the entire enemy team, or capture the point that they’re defending.
You can pick it up via the official website here, although the Shootmania Storm demo is apparently also available on Steam and Uplay – and playing it gives you the chance to win a PlayStation 4 or “VIP access to Shootmania.” If you’re still not convinced, there’s a trailer composed of community replays that show off what’s possible in the game below.
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really terrible ones, getting very angry at people in Dota 2, or playing basically anything that’s not a hardcore simulation or sports game. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
