About Laser League
“Laser League is a game built with community and co-op as our number 1 priority; we believe it represents team-based play at its very best, and that sense of teamwork extends to involving our fans in development,” said Neil Ralley, president, 505 Games. “Through our initial beta tests, we have been energized and inspired by the content and feature suggestions the community has shared and we’re looking forward to exploring that input further through our open beta this weekend as well as the Early Access program beginning Feb. 8.”
For a first look at the content that will initially be featured in Early Access, anyone can join the Laser League open beta, which is live now on Steam and runs through Sunday, Jan. 28 at 10:00 p.m. PST. All players who participate will receive exclusive in-game bonus items during Early Access, including the Al Shama OASIS 401 Limited Edition Kit, unique emojis and character portraits.
Three futuristic international stadiums will be available in the open beta and Early Access, bringing players a variety of twelve maps, each with a different gameplay style, including:
- Empire Campus Stadium (London, UK)
- Gauntlet: Restrictive map that quickly escalates in complexity
- Spin Cycle: Defensive map with perpetual long lasers
- Geng Hao Megaplex (Tianjin, China)
- Warzone: Multiple short firing nodes
- Crusher: Short moving lasers trap players
- Silvertip Arena (Detroit, USA)
- Y-Control: Long central orbiting lasers and shorter rotating lasers
- Prime: Interlocking lasers that allow players to expand control by owning the center of the map
Like all great sports, Laser League is simple to pick up and play, but rewards dedication with deeply strategic possibilities as players learn the complexities of classes and maps. In the open beta, players will be able to gain XP and progress to the highest levels, unlocking customizable items, but progress will be wiped for the upcoming Early Access.
