Last week, LawBreakers developer Boss Key Productions announced that their next video game venture is a free-to-play battle royale game titled Radical Heights. While the anti-gravity FPS LawBreakers found little success in a highly competitive market space, Radical Heights might have enough quirky differences to set itself apart from the likes of PUBG and Fortnite.
Radical Heights is set in what can only be explained as an over the top 80’s music video/game show. Cheesy music, vibrant colors, arcades, confetti bombs, inflatable decoys, and even BMX bikes. From the looks of things, it might just be time to dig out those sweatbands and windbreakers from your parents closet.
Money is King
When it comes to most battle royale titles, the loot is randomly found in places on the map. Boss Key has said that “money is king” in Radical Heights. Money is obtained in different areas of the map, and also when you take out an opponent. This money can be placed in a bank account via ATM’s spread across the map. Money can then be used between matches to buy new outfits or used in a match to buy new weapons. Money also carries over from match to match, meaning you could start a match loaded with cash and stock up on weapons from the get-go. Sounds fun to me.
Radical Heights goes into early access on Steam on April 10th, 2018. No announcements have been made regarding a console release at this time. Check back here for updates.
