FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Aalborg, Denmark (March 15, 2016) — Legendary games publisher 3D Realms and indie game development partner Interceptor Entertainment are offering the first Bombshell downloadable content (DLC) completely free of charge, included in the first major game update since the game launched late January.
“We wanted to show our appreciation for the fans that stood by us from day 1 with Bombshell” said 3D Realms CEO Mike Neilsen. “The game wasn’t perfect at launch, but our partners at Interceptor remained committed to creating fun and memorable experiences in their games – and that’s an ideal 3D Realms supports.”
Bombshell is on sale for 33%-OFF the MSRP of $34.99 all this week, and is available for purchase on Steam, GOG.com, Green Man Gaming, and the Humble store.
Addressing mixed critical reviews at launch, Interceptor Entertainment’s CEO and Creative Director Frederik Schreiber said: ”It’s true, games press was hot or cold with respect to Bombshell. But the game has a ‘Mostly Positive’ user rating on Steam right now, fluctuating between 70-75%, and it’s a relief to see gamers responding more consistently positive. We made this game for gamers, not the critics.” He went on to add, “Bombshell is a game we’re proud of. And it’s an even better game with 1.1, as we’ve addressed most of the fair and consistent criticisms the game received at launch.”
The included Free DLC is known as “Shellshock Missions”, and is accessible from the Main Menu. These are retro / arcade style missions that exist completely separate from the core campaign. They pit players against challenges like, killing all enemies using only Abilities, or clearing a zone within 3 minutes.
