ShootMania Storm entered open beta this week, and you can now freely download the game client and hop into some frenetic multiplayer shooter/builder action. Developer Nadeo says the beta includes most of what'll be in the final game, but some features will be restricted to players who've pre-ordered.

Ubisoft announced a delay last month just a day before the game was due. The publisher did at least whip up a new ShootMania Storm release date of April 10.
