'Laser League' (ALL) Open Beta Begins This Friday - Trailer

by Rainier on Jan. 22, 2018 @ 2:00 p.m. PST

Laser League is a fast and fun original multiplayer arcade game with an original vision of near-future competition.

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.


The open beta will begin on Friday, Jan. 26 at 9:00 a.m. PST and run through Sunday, Jan. 28 at 10:00 p.m. PST on Steam for PC. All players who participate will receive exclusive in-game bonus items, 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, 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

International players can join the Laser League open beta by joining servers in North America, Europe, Russia and Singapore to experience this content and more, choosing from six classes – each with a unique ability – in their attempt to dominate the pitch and climb the leaderboards. Available classes include:

  • Blade: Offers a short-range attack to eliminate opponents
  • Smash: Provides a longer-range dash attack, to send opponents flying across the pitch
  • Snipe: Allows players to drop a marker and trace a line across the pitch, then teleport back, eliminating anyone in their path
  • Ghost: Gives players a few seconds of invincibility to safely grab laser nodes or revive teammates
  • Thief: Delivers opportunities to steal laser nodes that have been activated by the opposition
  • Shock: Lends powers of electricity to stun rivals

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.

Laser League will be part of the Early Access program on Steam, followed by a launch on PC, PS4 and Xbox One in 2018.
