A new update is coming to Sound Shapes that will be their biggest update yet. It promises to include some "new levels, vehicles, creator content, offline play, and more musical/visual goodies."
Offline Play is finally coming! You will be able to sync your favorite community levels while you are connected to the server to play while you are on-the-go. This update is now available with today's patch, which, of course, is a free update.
Another free update will offer up some hand selected "eclectic and creative levels" from the Sound Shapes' Community that are arranged into some themed albums. Plus, there will be some downloadable content that will include two new vehicles to race through the levels with, including some flips, loops, and jumps for some platforming play.
Here are the details from Mark Robo, over at the Sound Shapes team, posted at PlayStation Blog:
Car Mini-Album & Creator Pack ($1.99)
Put on your driving gloves, there’s a new vehicle in Sound Shapes and it changes everything! Speed, flip, loop, and jump your way through the levels and experience Sound Shapes like never before. We set out to make a platformer and created a trials game by accident. Yeah!
This pack includes new Campaign levels, a full Sound Pack, brand new editor entities (like loop-de-loops, speed boosts, and more), Beat School lessons, and trophies too.
The Community Milkcrate & Six New Albums (free update)
Perfectly sized to fit a record, the trusty milkcrate has been holding music collections for a long time and with the Community Milkcrate we’re continuing that tradition. We’ve hand-picked eclectic and creative levels from the Community and arranged them into themed albums. Each is presented in a brand new interface and comes complete with liner notes with insights and interesting things to check out while playing them, kinda like a director’s commentary for levels. We’re so blown away by what you guys are making that we wanted a way to properly showcase it. Oh… and the Milkcrate albums become part of the game so any levels selected are baked right into Sound Shapes.
Here is the trailer to the left to get you hyped for some more Sound Shapes madness.
