505 Games announced that they have partnered with the BAFTA-winning indie developer Roll7 to bring the world Laser League. Check out a debut trailer below.
The game is a “fast and fun” original multiplayer arcade experience and will have 4 v. 4 online or local multiplayer modes. Visually it reminds me a lot of Tron.
In Laser League, the exhilarating, high-octane contact sport of 2150, players battle against the opposition for control of nodes that bathe the arena in deadly light. Evading rival colored beams, teams attempt to fry their opponents with speed, strength and strategy. Special offensive and defensive abilities, as well as game-changing power-ups on the arena floor, provide an edge at the crucial moment. Like all great sports, it is accessible and immediately understandable, but rewards dedication with deceptively complex strategic possibilities.
“We have admired and enjoyed Roll7’s work from a far ever since the first OlliOlli game,” said Tim Woodley, senior vice president of brand and marketing, 505 Games. “When we saw the first prototype for Laser League, we could already feel that all-too-rare ‘just one more go’ impulse. We jumped at the chance to help Roll7 take their proven studio to the next level and realize their ambitions for Laser League.”
Laser League will be part of the Early Access program on Steam beginning this summer, followed by a launch on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2018.
Players can sign up now for the chance to be part of Laser League‘s upcoming beta test and Early Access at their website.
