A recent update to Sound Shapes adds a brand new vehicle, new levels, creator content, and the ability to play offline. Most of the new content is free, though you can pick up the Car Mini-Album & Creator Pack for $1.99 USD. This pack adds a new vehicle that allows you to flip, loop, and jump through levels like never before. The pack plays more like a trials game instead of a platformer. You’ll get new campaign levels, a full Sound Pack, new editor entities (including loop-de-loops and speed boosts), Beat School lessons, and trophies.
Is $1.99 too much? Well, you can pick up some free content by way of The Community Milkcrate & Six New Albums.
Here’s a description via the PlayStation Blog:
"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.
The Milkcrate launches with six albums and 35 total levels and is included free in today’s patch update."
Finally, you can now take your game offline. You can sync your favorite community levels and play offline. The update is available now.
