Yesterday we have sent out the first wave of invitations for the ShootMania Storm Beta. Of course some of you have several questions about the Beta so we made a FAQ about it:
I registered for the Beta on the official site but didn’t receive my key. Why have other people received their key?
That’s normal, we sent the invites chronologically from the time players registered for the Beta. Several waves of invitations will be sent through the coming days/weeks.
Apparently I received a key valid for only 7 days. Does this mean the beta last 7 days and that the game will release after? Am I able to extend this period?
The key that you’ve received is valid for 7 days from the day you use it, you have until 31th July to use it or it will be deactivated. The Beta will last more than 7 days but we wish that every player registered to the Beta have the opportunity to test ShootMania Storm.
A way to extend your beta period will be announced soon.
The key has an expiration date?
You can use your key until the 31th July.
Where can I download ShootMania Storm?
A unique download link will be sent to you by GamesPlanet, use the promotional code given to you by email on the website:
Posted on 15 August 2012 by Cerovan Hi everyone, It’s been an incredible ride since the beginning of the ShootMania alpha and beta, and today during the Ubisoft Press Conference taking place at GamesCom in Germany, we took a moment to look back at what YOU, the players, have achieved.
But this is just the beginning, and we have great plans for the development of ManiaPlanet, big news that will bring players of TrackMania and ShootMania from all around the world, together in their love of competitive gaming. We’re not quite ready to talk about it yet, but you can already set the date: in November of this year, during the ESWC competition in Paris, Nadeo will hold a press conference to tell you more about it.
In the meantime, we continue to work very hard on the development of ManiaPlanet and on taking over the world of competitive gaming and eSports with ShootMania and TrackMania. Lots of things are happening every week on ManiaPlanet, so watch this space, and don’t hesitate to share the spirit around you !
