Introducing Mushroom Wars: Online

Hi everyone! I’m Bill Fryer, the Marketing and PR Coordinator from Creat Studios. I’m sure many of you are very familiar with our much-loved PSN title, Mushroom Wars, and I am very pleased to announce today that fans of Mushroom Wars will soon get the features they’ve been begging for in our newest DLC pack, Mushroom Wars Online! The online add-on will be available for download on 15 December in Europe.

For those of you who are unfamiliar, Mushroom Wars is a fast-paced and accessible RTS, with a quaint, anime-inspired visual style in which you send your cute armies into battle, upgrade your mushroom bases, improve your weaponry and fight skirmishes in close-quarter maps.

While the title Mushroom Wars: Online ruins the surprise of the best new feature in this add-on, it certainly won’t ruin your enjoyment as you slay opponents in our 4-person online multiplayer mode. You think that’s awesome? We’ve also thrown in local multiplayer support for up to four players, but that’s not all. Enjoy custom matches against online friends for training and entertainment, or watch other players battle from the sidelines to hone your strategic skills when you need a break. Compare your global rank with others to see how you stack up, and keep track of your personal score history. Record and replay your best matches, and share your victories with friends by uploading gameplay videos online.
For those of you who want to conquer new lands in the mushroom kingdom, we’re releasing a pack of new maps as well. For €0.99/£0.79 you can test out your strategies on new terrain, all true to the original visual style.

  • 3 pounds for this kind of DLC is a steal, I’m most likely on this day one. Thanks for the post-launch support, guys :)

  • This i would certainly get..
    Any chance to reduce the game by £1 or so or a bundle :D

  • I love mushroom wars its a nice simple game but I too won’t be buying this, the problem I find is all PSN games the online element quickly dies out so £2.39 is just not worth it sorry

    • You should check out all of the people posting their videos of Mushroom Wars onto youtube. Based on that, I think this game is going to have a great community.

  • Still not picked this up yet, although I played the demo and really enjoyed it. Maybe this is the time to pick it up…?
    Also, I can’t help but think that this game would work great with Move support. Something to think about…

    • This is definitely the time to pick it up :) Move would be really interesting with this game and we would love to keep working on this awesome game.

  • I must say I really enjoyed this game, however I’m concerned as to how many people will pick up this update. I suppose I could use the local multiplayer support if it became difficult to find people online.

    • There is a rather large community playing it now so that will probably transfer to the online scene. If you did play locally you would be able to play 4 player now too :)

  • Good game but……….
    PS3 internet browser facebook doesn’t work properly keeps crashing and some buttons dont work like commenting on people’s walls, not all videos on the EU and US blogs work and the search button doesn’t work at all on youtube

  • @shortfuse14: What does this have to do with the PS3 Internet browser? Sure it could be you’re viewing this blog update from the PS3, but it has nothing to do with the game so it doesn’t belong in this post.
    Mushroom Wars is awesome! I’ll consider buying this :)

  • most underrated PSN game …. i will continue my support to it by buying this add ….. Thanks Creat respects from Saudi :)

  • This game looks really awesome… don’t know how I could’ve missed it. Will go and check it out tomorrow!

  • this is cool, i bought this game a couple of months ago and i wasn’t expecting it to get an online patch.
    but i don’t think i’m ready to play against other people yet, i still suck at the single player lol =(

  • Just to clarify, are the new maps for offline play ?

  • Awesome! Great game, interesting additions, gamer friendly pricepoint. day one!

  • This really should’ve been in the original game, I was extremely disappointed when I bought it and it wasn’t. May or may not buy it depending what other stuff is on the store tomorrow.

  • So I actually just bought the game, but the online add-on doesn’t seem to be downloadable still . . . .
    So when will it be up & running?

  • Great implementation of online. Other than once, it matched me to a game instantly.
    But can I just point out a spelling mistake! If you pick a map for 3-4 local players, and try only 2 players, it says not enouth players, instead of not enough players.
    Plus, it would be nice to play those 3-4 player maps with 2 players.
    Lastly I have a request. In the campaign, can you have some kind of indication of what difficulty you have completed each individual level on, and what rewards you have on each. I have had to give up on 2 trophies as i keep repeating the same levels, etc.

  • Great DLC and a super price at the moment :)
    Also like ‘nickjd331’ mentioned it’s impossible to know which levels you have completed on which difficulty making some trophies virtually impossible.

  • It would have been nice to know that the extensions wouldn’t work with my US-bought copy of the game – so now it seems that I’m forced to buy a second copy of the game!

  • Now this is what I’m talking about, first of all the game is a wonderful melange of strategy and somewhat cutesy graphics which is appealing to absolutely everyone. I’m 28 and my son is 6, and we both thoroughly enjoy the game. If that’s not enough, the software is backed by a team that does everyone the favor of listening to what their customers want. That’s the difference between writers and people simply trying to earn a paycheck. (Like SquareSoft ever since they ousted their president for the bad movie reviews).

  • Also, does anyone know the release date for Mushroom Wars Online for the USA? I’m eagerly anticipating :)
