'Leap' Open Beta/Playtest Later This Week, Gets Steam Early Access Date - Trailer

by Rainier on May 18, 2022 @ 3:52 p.m. PDT

Leap is a team-based, aerial firefight focused first-person shooter featuring epic battles with up to 60 players, each armed to the teeth.

Fight for either the United Earth Defense Coalition (UEDC) or the rebel Exo-Terrans - whoever pays the most, wins your trigger finger and excessive arsenal.

In Leap, players will select from four unique classes, each delivering a unique balance of power, agility and defense as well as epic abilities that bring shock and awe onto their foes.

Work together with your teammates, use powerful weapons and unique class abilities, and traverse the terrain quickly with grappling hooks, jetpacks and outrageous vehicles to seize victory.

Blue Isle Studios announced today its twisted team-based, aerial firefight-focused first-person shooter Leap is coming to Steam Early Access on June 1.

In anticipation of the game’s Early Access launch, Blue Isle Studios has partnered with GPortal to host an Open Beta/Play Test (Steam) for Leap that begins Friday, May 20 at 10:00am PT and runs through Sunday, May 22 at 6:00pm PT.

Mercenaries will have the opportunity to check out the all-new PVE mode - Special Operations - during the Open Beta Test, squadding up into teams of four to fight and rake up juicy contract bonuses… and bring peace back to Earth and stuff.

In Special Operations, four-player teams will face off against new enemies like the Specialist, a sneaky snake who likes to hide and is armed with a sniper rifle, and the SpecOps, a group of stealth assassins wielding swords and invisible powers. LEAP’s Open Beta Test will also introduce a variety of improvements and updated gameplay features.

Every exosuit comes equipped with match altering abilities - Call in an Orbital Laser to wipe out a group of enemies, or throw down a Support Shield to take temporary cover from enemy fire. Every obstacle is an opportunity to soar, dash or charge, and an elite mercenary will use their unique movement abilities to navigate the battlefield quickly. Use your grappling hook to reach greater heights or your directional dash to dodge enemy fire.

The glory of victory only gets sweeter with rewards. Customize your mercenary with helmet emojis and distinct skin options for exosuits, vehicles and weapons. Flaunt and taunt your frenemies with style and sass.

Nothing is more menacing than a Leap mercenary saddled on a mechanical moose galloping at full speed. 

Leap is in development for PC (Steam).
