Futuremark Studios announced today that the zero-gravity first-person shooter, Shattered Horizon, has undergone a major update that introduces gamers to a slew of new single-player modes where players can hone their skills against bots.
Jaakko Haapasalo, Director of Futuremark Games Studio commented in the press release, saying…
"Shattered Horizon's multiplayer can be tough for new players. Not only do they have to learn the skills required for zero gravity combat, but they have to do so while going up against the game's experienced community," …. "Now there's an alternative. The Last Stand pack adds single player to all game modes making it the perfect way for new players to learn the game, practice to improve or just play for fun."It’s true, newbs get slaughtered in the game and Shattered Horizon has a lot of interesting mechanics that can be manipulated to the advantage of a skilled player. Allowing the newbs to get a grasp of the gameplay and weapon mechanics without being mercilessly pwned like no tomorrow is a good way to expand the user base. The single-player bot matches will most definitely help a lot of new players adjust and advance enough in order to become competitive with the long-time players.
In addition to the new mode, Shattered Horizon is currently 50% off this week on Steam, so now would be a perfect time to try the game out if you have a DX10 or higher video card.
