BLUE ISLE STUDIOS ANNOUNCES LEAP, A MULTIPLAYER FIRST-PERSON SHOOTER SUPPORTING UP TO 60 PLAYERS
Blue Isle Studios, the developer of Valley, and Citadel: Forged in Fire games, has today revealed Leap, its new multiplayer first-person shooter. It also revealed when its closed beta will begin and end.
Leap supports up to 60 players and adds an aerial firefight and mobility focus to the genre’s proven mechanics. After choosing one of the four exo-suits available, you take on the role as a mercenary and join either the United Earth Defense Coalition (or the Exo-Terrans) before entering the fray.
Each exo-suit has its own skills, allowing players to launch orbital strikes, create automated turrets on the map or destroy their opponents with guided cruise missiles.
Personal vehicles such as hoverboards or mechanical Moses can be used to help you navigate the “six immense environments” that are available in Steam Early Access.
Leap’s closed beta is now set for January 19. It will close two days later on January 21. To be eligible for participation, interested parties can sign up at the official site.
Early access will allow you to choose from multiple game modes, which can accommodate different player counts in small, medium, and large versions of these environments.
Leap offers a range of weapons that can be unlocked for each class as well as cosmetics to add style to your guns and armor.
The developer has said that the first-person shooter will be available in Steam Early Access, but no details are known. The current plans are to keep it there for twelve months while the team fixes bugs, improves stability, and adds new content. Mod support is also planned.
The announcement trailer for the game is below. You can find out more information about it on Steam.
