Ships Ahoy - ShootMania: Storm

Ubisoft announces the release of ShootMania: Storm, the first-person shooter from TrackMania developer Nadeo. To celebrate they are holding ShootMania 4 All, a worldwide release party for the game's first players. Details on how to join in the festivities can be found on this page. The game is available through and Steam and they say Uplay, but the site says it is down for maintenance, which GameSpot says is to clear up security issues which lead to the leak of Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. They inform those who participated in the betas that their accounts have been converted to trial accounts, but add that new players cannot create trial accounts at this time, saying: "Free trial accounts with access to Elite and Royal will come back in the future along with more updates of the game." Here's the launch trailer and here's word:

SAN FRANCISCO – April 10, 2013 – Ubisoft® and Nadeo have released ShootMania Storm, an online multiplayer first person action game built from the ground-up for fast-paced competition and endless variation via intuitive content creation tools for users. ShootMania Storm is now available for personal computer via the game's official web site and the Steam digital distribution service for $19.99.

“ShootMania Storm delivers on two fronts: incredible, fast-paced competition for newcomers and pros alike as well as easy-to-use creator tools that empower users with the ability to imagine, design and build their own worlds,” said Joshua Milligan, Senior Director, Online Strategy, Ubisoft.
