Goat Simulator to get new map, split screen, fresh goats on June 3

Goat Simulator patch 1.1 will be released on June 3, Coffee Stain Studio has announced.

According to the studio, the patch will introduce a number of features that players suggested as DLC, which will now be released free of charge.

"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 game 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."

The update will bring a new map "roughly the size of the old map", in addition to local split-screen multiplayer for up to four players, goat wall-running and balancing on front legs.

Players will also be able to ride bicycles and skateboards, as well as force humans to ride goats. New playable goats including Tornado Goat, Shopping Goat, Classy Goat and Repulsive Goat will be introduced. The patch will also feature other optimisations and achievements too.

In our Goat Simulator review we said the game is "definitely funny, just not quite for long enough, and the surrounding game is uneven."
