The masters of vehicle combat, Stainless Games have gone back to their roots to deliver all the over the top action you could possibly need.

The titular ShockRods are fully customisable, technologically advanced vehicles, equipped with nitros and the ability to double jump, allowing for truly thrilling and action packed gameplay. 


It’s an easy to learn, hard to master, high octane thrill-a-minute ride!

Originally intended to launch into Early Access in June, Shockrods now slams onto Steam as a full release with a wealth of features and functionality:

  • 6 playable environments - Arena, Dam, Shockball, Western, Snowfall & Summit

  • Multiple modes - Deathmatch, Team DeathMatch, Capture the Flag, Shockball & Golden Ram

  • Custom Lobby system

  • Full vehicle customisation

  • 6v6 team modes plus 12 player Deathmatch

“The launch of ShockRods marks the latest step in a 20 year journey since I first worked with Stainless Games and I couldn’t be more impressed by what their incredibly talented team have created in ShockRods” said David Clark, Managing Director of Green Man Gaming Publishing 

ShockRods is out now on Steam for PC priced at $24.99, £19.49, 20,99€. For more information head to Twitter, Discord, Reddit or Facebook
