Huge Sci-Fi Multiplayer Shooter, LEAP, Announced With Closed Beta

Developer Blue Isles Studios have announced their brand new explosive first-person shooter, LEAP, with a Closed Beta Test coming very soon.

LEAP is the latest title from developer Blue Isles Studios who are known for developing Slender: The Arrival, Valley and Citadel: Forged With Fire. It seeks to blend both land and air-based combat in a huge explosive first-person shooter extravaganza. Matches will feature up to 60 players who will split between the United Earth Defense Coalition and the Exo-Terrans factions. While the majority of their previous titles have been smaller, singleplayer focused experiences, LEAP will be multiplayer only. It also plans to be in Early Access 12 months, according to the game’s Steam store page. However, it is possible this will change as they say “game development can be tricky, and our timeline will remain flexible”.
