Stainless Games are back with a classic arena shooter with a twist. Stainless Games are back with a brand new IP featuring all the over the top, in your face vehicle combat that you have come to expect from this world class dev studio. ShockRods is a 6v6 or 12 player free-for-all arena shooter, bringing all the blisteringly fast-paced action, mayhem and overpowered weapons you would expect.   ShockRods draws inspiration from the classic “kill or be killed” arena shooter greats of yesteryear with over the top weapons, explosions and insane mobility, but with a twist - the ShockRods! These customisable, technologically advanced vehicles, nimble but tough, are equipped with multi-directional boosters and the ability to double jump, allow for truly thrilling and action-packed gameplay. It’s easy to learn, but hard to master - a high octane, thrill-a-minute ride! Environments ShockRods features 6 stunning, highly varied environments, designed to allow players to exploit their vehicle’s manoeuvrability; These range from natural looking desert and woodland areas, to man made battle arenas, specifically designed for 6v6 or free-for-all carnage and mayhem. Game modes ShockRods brings 3 classic, tried and tested game modes to the table: Death Match, Team Death Match and Capture The Flag. Plus, the juggernaut inspired Golden Ram mode and the full combat no-holds-barred Shockball - work as a team and protect the ball carrier as they target the opposition goal, or simply reduce your opponents to scrap metal and walk the ball home. Customisation ShockRods allows for full customisation of your hulking war machines. Change your car type, colour, wheels and patterns. Choose from a host of taunt FX and sounds, and much more, to show off your flair and style as you dominate your opponents. All the content is cosmetic and can be unlocked through currency earned in game based on your performance in battle. Weapons and Power-Ups ShockRods brings a full arsenal of explosive and somewhat unconventional weapon types to annihilate your opponents. These will be scattered across the environment for you to collect and put to good use. Want a Minigun? Rocket Launcher? Grenade Launcher? We got you covered. Not your style? Try the Balloon Cannon, Freeze Gun or Ram power ups!

ShockRods Critic Reviews

ShockRods is a disappointing game that was made with a lot of oversight. While most of the issues can be resolved with software updates and DLC maps, the base game costs £20 and you are getting what is essentially a half baked game.
