Freejam’s most electrifying expansion to date ‘Enter the Shredzone’ is now live for the free-to-play PC battle building game,Robocraft. The latest update is the tenth free expansion for Robocraft and features two new tools of war, a new step-by-step tutorial system which is a first for the series, an enhanced Single Player mode, new build options and multiple bug fixes and balance changes.
This latest expansion continues to build on the success of Robocraft, which has accrued over 9 million registered player accounts since arriving on Steam’s Early Access platform in July 2014, and marks an important step in the game’s journey to full scale launch later this year. New features in the expansion include:
New Legendary Weapon – Chain Shredder: This minigun-esque weapon can shred enemies in a heartbeat once spun up to full fire-rate and is versatile enough to be used by both flying robots and those anchored to the ground.
New Legendary Weapon – EMP: Shock and drop enemies with this high skill module which allows players to call down a huge column of electromagnetic pulse energy from an orbiting mothership. When successfully aimed, this attack will deactivate any enemies unfortunate enough to be caught in its radius for several seconds allowing for a quick and easy kill.
Step-by-step Tutorial: For the first time in Robocraft history, players will be greeted with a detailed hands-on tutorial when they first log-in or access the main menu. This short step-by-step guide introduces the basics of character movement, how to place blocks in Edit mode, inventory management and the nuance of combat.
Enhanced Single Player and Better AI: Robocraft’s existing Single Player mode has been overhauled and now faithfully emulates the game’s 5 vs. 5 Team Deathmatch gamemode. However rather than facing other humans online, players are placed on a team with AI teammates to fight against enemy bots and earn Salvage Crates and experience based on their performance.
