Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Laser League began as a small, experimental game for local multiplayer fun in 2014, with feedback from our awesome dev friends from around the world, we saw the potential to build it into something more substantial. Before launching on Early Access, we plan to run BETAS to achieve a level of balance and polish we are happy with. We believe once in Early Access we will have the chance to further tweak the game balance, test new features, poll the community for ideas, fine tune Network and Matchmaking elements and help Laser League become the ultimate Arcade Multiplayer Competition!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The current plan is to have a strong release candidate by Q1 of 2018 but changes to the game's scope through community excitement and feedback may drive a longer development.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version of the game will have more content – new stadiums, Maps, Power Ups, player models, Portraits, Laser Textures and Emojis. That said, we want to keep our plans pretty flexible so that we can evolve the game based on your feedback.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“All major features are in the game;

  • Over 60 characters from 5 Unique brands
  • Select from 6 unique and spectacular classes; SMASH, THIEF, GHOST, SHOCK, SNIPE and BLADE.
  • Play up to 4v4 intense offline or online matches
  • Compete on 3 packed international Stadiums and master up to 10 laser maps.
  • 16 available power ups drastically change gameplay momentum
  • Level up to unlock over 250 character customizations.

However there may be aspects of the game that still require polish; we appreciate your understanding on that front and ask for you to please be as descriptive as possible when giving us feedback. We’re dedicated to providing regular updates, and are committed to the game being playable and stable throughout Early Access.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“A decision on the final pricing will be made during the Early Access period, and may be higher depending on the amount of features and content added to the game.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“You can always reach Roll7 and 505 Games through our social media profiles! But we will monitor the LASER LEAGUE Steam Forums, and our Trello Board for your ideas and questions and will run surveys to gather representative feedback. At this stage of development, we are specifically looking at the XP system balance, class balancing, stadium rotation playlists, Map design and powerups. If you’re passionate about the game, please be a part of this process!”

LASER LEAGUE OPEN BETA FAQ GUIDE

When?
Beta will officially open servers in Europe, North America, Russia and South-East Asia from Friday 26 at 0900 PCT / 1200 EST / 1700 GMT until Sunday 28 at 2200 PST / (Monday) 0100 EST / (Monday) 0600 GMT.

How do I get in the game?
1. Browse for “Laser League Beta” on Steam on Friday 26.
2. Click on “Install Now”
3. Launch the game from your library.
4. We strongly suggest that you play with an Xbox controller.
5. We recommend paying close attention to the Tutorial video on boot to learn the basics. Or better still, play the in-game Tutorial!

How do I get a match going on?
1. Press any button on the game logo screen.
2. Press “Play Online” on the Main Menu screen
3. Select “Standard. 3v3” or “Duel.2v2” mode.
4. You will be able to customize your character (class and modifier, kit, portrait, emojis, laser pattern) while the system automatically finds a match for you. Make sure you try out all the classes and see which suits your playstyle best.

What are these ‘classes’?
Your character class determines your special ability in game, which you can activate once it’s charged. There are six in this Open Beta version:

• BLADE: Has a short-range attack which will eliminate an opponent.
• SMASH: A longer-range dash attack, which sends a hit opponent flying across the pitch.
• SNIPE: Drop a marker, see a tracer line to it drawn on the pitch, and teleport back to it – eliminating anyone in your path
• GHOST: Activate for a few seconds of invincibility, to safely grab lasers or revive team mates
• THIEF: Steal a laser node that’s been activated by the opposition
• SHOCK: Area of effect electric shock that stuns rivals.

Each class also has two ‘modifiers’ which subtly change their effect – experiment!

Can I select a map to play on?
No, the game does that for you. There are 3 stadiums and 12 maps in this Open Beta version, each with a different gameplay style. The longer you stay alive, the more chaotic they become.

• EMPIRE CAMPUS (London, UK)
• GAUNLET: Restrictive. Quickly escalates in complexity.
• NINE CLUB: Hypnotic. Slow escalation with space for combat.
• SPIN CYCLE: Defensive. Perpetual long lasers.
• ARROWHEAD: Mesmeric. Slowly shifting border.

GENG HAO MEGAPLEX (Tianjin, China)
• CRUSHER: Pressure! Short moving lasers to trap opponents.
• WARZONE: Shooting. Multiple short firing nodes.
• BATTLEGROUND: End to End. Multiple long-beamed nodes.
• RICOCHET: Hectic. Figure of eight moving nodes.

SILVERTIP ARENA (Detroit, USA)
• CAROUSEL: Clockwise. Slow escalation with Space for combat.
• Y CONTROL: Orbiting. Long central lasers. Short rotating ones.
• PRIME: Interlocking. Expand control by owning the centre.
• ROTATOR: Restrained. Close combat with deadzones

Will I be able to save my progress?
You will be able to progress, climb the leaderboards and unlock new character models, player kits, Laser patterns, emojis, etc but we’ll wipe servers through our Beta and Early Access programs until we release the final version on Steam. Laser life is tough!

Can I post or share info, images, videos, etc of the game?
Yes, you can capture, share and stream! but, please, bear in mind that during this Open Beta, we will be analyzing and working on the servers, matches and player performance. You may experience latency and server complications, you may encounter issues and be exposed to content and features that may be modified or removed from the final version of the game. We appreciate your cooperation on this front.

Any known issues I should know about?
– Some users get a green screen on boot caused by a driver issue. Switch to Borderless in graphics options to fix.
– Ensure all Party members are loaded to the main menu before progressing to matchmaking. If one of your Party is still watching the intro video, you may get a crash.
– Avoid making changes in the Options Menu once an online game is in progress. If you want to make changes to video settings etc, do those on the main menu before matchmaking.

But I have more questions… and suggestions!
Join the Laser League Steam forums and talk to us there! We’ll be listening…
