Developer/publisher Deep Silver announced today via press release that they have acquired the distribution rights to "Goat Simulator's" physical release in North America. This means a physical copy will be hitting stores sometime in the near future for the same price as the digital version at $9.99.
While this is great news to North Americans who still haven't made the jump to "that internet thing," UK residents were privileged to have boxed copies sitting on shelves since May.
Check out the full press release below:
Larkspur, Calif., June 27, 2014 – Today Deep Silver announced it has acquired the North American PC distribution rights for Goat Simulator from Coffee Stain Studios – the most unique goat simulator of the goat simulator genre and quite possibly the funniest game in the history of games, ever, forever.
Available in participating retail stores for $9.99 by mid-July, the title includes the patch 1.1 content with new goats, the ability to ride a bike and skateboard, a new map and local four-player split screen multiplayer mode. New game modes include Capture the Flag, Racing Mode, and Ragdoll Hockey.
Supporting Steam Workshop, Goat Simulator players can create their own goats, levels, missions and more. While the main character may get hit by a truck, head butt a car until it explodes or perform endless other acts of rampage with style, rest assured that the goat will never die and a humans’ desire to destroy things can forever be fulfilled. The slow motion controls, exaggerated physics, ridiculous bugs and random events in the small, yet dense maps make it easy to enjoy this sandbox goat simulator. Strap on the jetpack, jump on a trampoline and head butt your way into video game absurdity with Goat Simulator.
