The ShootMania 4 All Recap!

Hello everyone,

Last month, the community, Nadeo, and Ubisoft, in partnership with SteelSeries, came together to celebrate a very special event: the release of ShootMania Storm with the “ShootMania4All” Launch Party.SM_-_SM4ALL_recap_-_slide

For the entire day, thousands of people from all around the world came together to discover and play ShootMania – online or in person, from North America, Europe, Australia and many places inbetween.

Players created a fun and friendly ambiance, sporting the ShootMania colors alongside other awesome swag the received, including t-shirts, mugs, and the limited edition ShootMania collector mousepads.

Fans unable to attend one of the live events still had a chance to participate in the fun, joining the FragDolls and O’GamingTV for their livestreams. They put together an awesome show, which you can watch [or rewatch!] here:

Finally, for those who prefered to simply play the game, special online servers were configured specifically for this event. These servers featured some of the most popular community-generated game modes, and allowed everyone to participate in the party [and even meet members of the Nadeo crew!

We leave with this small re-cap video of the event, and our thanks once again to our fans and players for helping us with organizing and participating in the launch of ShootMania Storm. It was really awesome.
