London, UK – March 28, 2012 – Hot off the heels of its launch earlier this month for both Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation®Network, Demiurge Studios and Ubisoft are proud to announce that their beer-fueled run-and-gun co-op romp, Shoot Many Robots , is heading to Steam on April 6, 2012 for £7.99. Starting today and going through launch, those that pre-order through Steam will receive a litany of bonuses, including: buy three copies of the game, get one free (the Steam Four Pack); special gear that enables you to kick butt as Gordon Freeman from Half Life; the dreaded Portal turrets will replace some of the enemy robots; and a special backpack from Team Fortress 2, the Chopper Bot, for the Pyro and Medic classes.
The PC version will boast sexier graphics (up to 2560x1600 resolution and 60 fps), overhauled and PC-optimized controls and interfaces, fully integrated Steam matching, Facebook matchmaking, Steam achievements, and integrated voice chat.
"We're dedicated PC gamers here at Demiurge Studios, and we wanted to make sure and take the time to do the PC version right,” said Albert Reed, CEO. “We rebuilt the controls for PC and overhauled all the user interface so it won't feel like you've turned your keyboard into a gamepad that makes clicky sounds – every detail has been considered to make this an optimized and seamless experience."
Released by Ubisoft and developed by Demiurge Studios, Shoot Many Robots is a four-player co-op run-n-gun RPG shooter that lets players take out a tidal wave of rusting hulks of metal and degenerating circuits with an array of weaponry that would make any shooter enthusiast proud. Shoot Many Robots is packed full of big guns, massive explosions, giant bosses, four-player online mayhem, and a ton of customizable gear to unlock.
