Futuristic arena battler fully launching this week with a variety of discounts.
Laser League, the arcade-style multiplayer action sport of the future from indie publisher 505 Games and BAFTA award-winning development studio Roll7, will launch next month on Thursday, May 10 for Steam on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Offering up intense online or local multiplayer matches with friends, Laser League’s frenetic yet intuitive gameplay is easy to play but difficult to master, in a throwback to the heyday of gaming’s more approachable arcade action.
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.
Simon Bennett, studio director at Roll7 said:
“Early Access has allowed us to get feedback from players and focus on the priorities. 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 that call and grow our community.”
Laser League will launch on Steam, PS4 and Xbox One on the 10th of May. There’ll be a 40% discount from the 10th until the 16th of May on Steam, whilst Xbox One players with Gamepass will get the game free from launch. PS4 players will receive 20% off the full price, and a free theme, for pre-ordering.
