Laser League has been sat in Steam Early Access for a little while already, but now, as it begins to prepare for a full release, comes the news that it won’t be a PC limited title. Instead the multiplayer future sport will also be arriving on Xbox One (as a Game Pass title no less) and PS4… and it’ll be here pretty soon.
Coming from the development team at Roll7 and their publishers 505 Games, Laser League will be hitting Xbox One, PS4 and PC come May 10th 2018, with the Xbox One version debuting in Xbox Game Pass.
Full of arcade style multiplayer action, Laser League will offer up intense online and local multiplayer matches with friends, as its frenetic yet intuitive easy to play but difficult to master gameplay delivers a throwback to the heyday of gaming’s more approachable arcade action.
About the game:
This exhilarating, high-speed contact sport of 2150 pits players against the opposition for control of nodes that bathe the arena in deadly lasers. Evading rival colored beams, teams attempt to eliminate their opponents with speed, skill and strategy. Special offensive and defensive abilities, as well as game-changing power-ups on the arena floor, provide an edge at crucial moments. Like all great sports, Laser League is accessible and immediately understandable, but rewards dedication with deceptively complex strategic possibilities.
“Early Access has allowed us to get feedback from players and focus on the priorities,” said Simon Bennett, studio director, Roll7. “We have worked on bringing new players to the community and delivering new and exciting content. Leaving Early Access is the culmination of a development process that started many years ago and it allows us to get Laser League into the hands of more players, across multiple platforms, so we can answer the call to grow our community.”
After spending a good few months in Early Access on Steam, Laser League will launch with all of the following content included:
- 6 unique classes; Blade, Smash, Thief, Ghost, Shock and Snipe
- 16 maps with unique laser patterns
- 15 power-ups with the possibility to drastically alter the match
- 12 modifier effects to adjust each class to best suit your playstyle
- 4 international stadiums packed with cheering fans
- Over 250 unique character customizations
We’ll be finding the launch of Laser League on Steam also including an additional seven maps, two stadiums and two new power-ups, along with six unique new modifiers.
Further to this, 505 and Roll7 are also launching the NewMotion Brand DLC, which will include two new player models, eight kits, exclusive laser patterns, emojis and character portraits for $1.99. Whilst it should be hitting PC on launch day, the extra console content will arrive later in May.
