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

Offering up intense online or local multiplayer matches with friends, Laser League’sfrenetic yet intuitive gameplay is easy to play but difficult to master, in a throwback to the heyday of gaming’s more approachable arcade action.

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.

Laser League will launch on Thursday, May 10 for Steam on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Early Access has allowed us to get feedback from players and focus on the priorities,” said Simon Bennett, studio director, Roll7.“We have worked on bringing new players to the community and delivering new and exciting content. Leaving Early Access is the culmination of a development process that started many years ago and it allows us to get Laser League into the hands of more players, across multiple platforms, so we can answer the call to grow our community.”  

Following several months in Early Access on Steam, Laser League will launch with a wealth of content including:

  • 6 unique classes; Blade, Smash, Thief, Ghost, Shock and Snipe
  • 16 maps with unique laser patterns
  • 15 power-ups with the possibility to drastically alter the match
  • 12 modifier effects to adjust each class to best suit your playstyle
  • 4 international stadiums packed with cheering fans
  • Over 250 unique character customizations

Laser League on Steam will also launch with an additional seven maps, two stadiums and two new power-ups included in the price of purchase, along with six unique new modifiers, providing a new way to play each of the game's classes. On top of this, 505 Games and Roll7 are also launching the NewMotion Brand DLC, which will include two new player models, eight kits, exclusive laser patterns, emojis and character portraits for $1.99. The added content and DLC will be available on console later in May.

Several promotions will run to celebrate the launch of Laser League, including:

  • Sony: Beginning today, PS+ members who pre-order the game will receive a PS4 theme and 20% off
  • Microsoft: Laser League will be available to Gamepass Members free from launch
  • Steam: 40% discount for launch week (May 10-16)

Laser League will launch on PC, PS4 and Xbox One starting May 10, 2018.
