Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions Evolved adds 40 new stages

Update due at the end of the month.

The newly-revived Sierra has announced Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions Evolved, an update for Lucid Games' fast-paced neon twin-stick shooter.

The update adds 40 new stages to Adventure Mode, new boss battles, 3D grid shapes and gameplay types. The previous level gating system has been revised to make it easier for players to progress and unlock modes.

Elsewhere, Hardcore mode lets you play 20 dedicated levels without using a drone or super. There are individual leaderboards for this, too.

Evolved is a free download for existing Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions and will be available on 31st March on PlayStation 4 and PS3, PC, Mac and Linux via Steam. It launches on 1st April on Xbox One and Xbox 360.

Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions becomes Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions Evolved for new players when the update comes out, and will be sold for the same price. The whole package includes over 100 levels.

Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions launched late last year. Chris Donlan gave it a 7 (remember review scores?), saying he enjoyed playing the game, but took issue with the progression system.
