Only a couple of days after Lawbreakers studio Boss Key announced the death of their game so that they can move on to other projects, they come back to reveal their next one. A battle royale title named Radical Heights. Can this become new competition for PUBG and Fortnite?
The thing that differs Radical Heights from other Battle Royale titles is its 80s themed environment and characters as well as the use of cash to buy items in-game to use during battle. In its first trailer, the game looks rather promising but it remains to be seen if it manages to attract players from other similar games. \Its retro look and cult looking characters are probably the first reason players will want to try it out, with the second being its free-to-play character. Either way, Radical Heights will be available on Steam Early Access on April 10th. Its Steam description reads:
Welcome to RADICAL HEIGHTS, a free *X-TREME Early Access* BATTLE ROYALE shooter. 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! Whether you spend that cash on righteous customization 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!
Radical Heights seem to have that “graphic middle ground” between PUBG and Fortnite as its colors are bright and radiant enough while the models don’t look as cartoony as Fortnite’s. Speaking of, its minimum requirements seem legit even for low-end PCs giving you the opportunity to get into a new battle royale title even if you couldn’t try out any other yet.
It remains to be seen if its cash feature and shooting system are good enough to be considered competitive enough, but it looks like a decent project to lean on right now.
Steam users have already started nagging about its free-to-play character and whether or not it will be filled with pay-to-win material as a Founder’s Pack has been revealed containing a permanent 10% gold boost. Boss Key has replied to this saying that the boost is available only for the gold that you gain after the game.
Radical Heights is coming to Steam Early Access on April 10th by Boss Key. Will you try it out?
