Video game developer Blue Isle Studios announced today that its twisted team-based, aerial firefight-focused first-person shooter LEAP is coming to Steam Early Access on June 1st, 2022. In anticipation of the game’s Early Access launch, Blue Isle Studios has partnered with GPortal to host an Open Beta Test for LEAP that begins Friday, May 20th, 2022 at 10:00 am PT and runs through Sunday, May 22nd, 2022 at 6:00 pm 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.
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. Call in orbital strikes, set up automated turrets, or control guided cruise missiles as each exosuit is armed to the teeth. Large-scale combat takes place on a variety of stages and skilled mercenaries use jetpacks, grappling hooks, and highly distinctive Personal Vehicles to close the distance on control points and active firefights. Nothing is more menacing than a LEAP mercenary saddled on a robo-moose galloping at full speed.
