Radical Heights is a new Battle Royale game from the makers of Lawbreakers
Radical Heights is the brand new battle royale game from the makers of Lawbreakers.
Boss Key is aiming to cash in on the Fortnite and PUBG battle royale craze with an 80s-inspired shooter of its own.
Radical Heights enters “x-treme early access” at 6pm UK time later today.
The free-to-play shooter will be available to download on Steam, alongside a paid Founder’s Pack featuring cosmetic items and Gems.
“Partake in high-stakes battle royale gunplay in a sunny SoCal dome as contestants drive-by on BMX bikes or stalk other contestants from the shadows in search for weapons and prizes… but also CASH that you can bank – win or lose!” reads a Boss Key post.
“Whether you spend that cash on righteous customisation in your personal prize room or pull it from an ATM to purchase weapons early in the next game – building a wealth of cash is as important as taking down the competition in this irreverent 80s-themed action game show where everyone wants to be rich and famous!”
As with rival Battle Royale shooters, 100 players will battle it out to become the last person standing in solo mode or as a duo.
While the game will initially only be available on PC, Boss Key hasn’t ruled out a PS4 and Xbox One release.
Asked for information on a potential console release, Boss Key replied: “Radical Heights is on STEAM, PC. Right now, we’re focused at building Radical Heights in X-TREME Early Access with Community and releasing a 1.0 version in 2019.
“Once we leave Early Access, who knows what the future holds!”
The studio also plans to add new features, including female characters and squad play.
One fan even asked if skateboards will be available in the future, to which Boss Key replied: “We like your style.
“The team is continuously working on updates for fun things contestants will be able to experience in the Dome in the future. Noted and be sure to let us know more feedback when you get hands-on!”
Boss Key has also confirmed that controller support will be added as part of a future update.
“No controller support at launch, but the team is working on it for the future.”
