Smash hit Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions is picking up another subtitle in addition to a boatload of bonus content in a free update. The content will be available to players on PS4, PS3, PC, Mac, Linux and of course, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions Evolved includes 40 new stages, new boss battles, 3D grid shapes, gameplay types, drones and super abilities. The level gating has been eased, allowing players to progress without headaches.
For fans seeking a challenge, Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions Evolved's "Hardcore" mode features 20 specific levels which also block power up drones or super abilities. Hardcore mode also introduces leaderboards for added competitiveness.
Windows Central's John Callahan previously interviewed Lucid Games' Craig Howard on the critically acclaimed arcade shooter. Howard praised the game for its playability with friends, citing Geometry Wars' rival notifications which keep you informed of how your friends are doing. If you're a newcomer to Geometry Wars, John's interview provides some great insight.
When Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions Evolved hits on April 1st, Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions will cease to exist, and all players present and future will be upgraded to the new package. The two games combined will feature over 100 levels, and will retain the competitive and co-operative online features of Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions.
