Ubi send word that Nadeo’s competitive FPS spin on the community-driven “Mania” platform, Shootmania: Storm, will soon be entering its second beta test phase soon: December 19th, in fact. That really is quite soon. Also check out this extract from their blurb: “Create your own frag style with the new movements and game modes.” Haha, “frag style”. That’s how they say it on the street, you know.
There’s also a fancy new trailer, which you can see below.
Personally I’d love to see the less-realistic, more acrobatic FPS come back as a dominant e-sports form, but I am not entirely convinced that Shootmania is the platform for making that happen.
