ShootMania Storm release delayed to April 10, open beta beginning Feb. 12

Developer Nadeo's upcoming multiplayer first-person shooter ShootMania Storm will now be released on April 10, a nearly three-month delay from its original release date of Jan. 23, publisher Ubisoft announced this morning.

The current pre-order offer of a 20 percent discount and immediate, unlimited access to the closed beta will be extended through April 10 as well.

Additionally, the game will go into open beta on Feb. 12 in order for developers to collect more community feedback and target areas needing additional polish.

"Nadeo's model of development has always been to be very close to the community," said Nadeo Live managing director Anne Bondel-Jouin. "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."

ShootMania Storm is part of the ManiaPlanet group of games, which also includes Nadeo's TrackMania racing titles, and allows players to build and share customized maps using the extensive ManiaPlanet map editing tools.
