Old dogs may be a lost cause, but old goats can definitely be taught new tricks - for proof, look no further than the 1.1 update now slated to reach Goat Simulator on June 3.

Though originally scheduled to launch in May, developer Coffee Stain Studios opted to delay the release of the 1.1 patch to ensure that players would receive only the finest in barnyard shenanigans. "We realise we said we'd release the patch in May, but we really wanted to shock players and make sure the new map will be even better than the old one, so we had to push forth the release date a week or so than we originally intended," said designer Armin Ibrisagic. "With June 3rd as a release date, the new map is gonna be so awesome, and I'm not just saying that cause I'm working on the game."

Alongside the new map (which Coffee Stain Studios claims is "roughly the size of the old map") the free 1.1 update also brings with it splitscreen multiplayer for up to four would-be goats, goat parkour and goats that have inexplicably learned to ride both bicycles and skateboards. New breeds of goat are also found in the update, including the Tornado Goat, Classy Goat and Shopping Goat.

What's a "Shopping Goat?" We've got no idea. Just roll with it, and hope June 3 brings some sort of explanation.
