Laser League arcade multiplayer announcement

laser league arcade multiplayer announcment linux mac windows pc games

Since 505 #Games announced a partnership with BAFTA-winning indie dev magicians Roll7. Hence Laser League, a fast and fun original multiplayer arcade game. And since the studio is known for the award-winning OlliOlli series. And of course NOT A HERO. #Roll7 bring their trademark addictive gameplay to an original vision of near-future competition. Which we all expect to release on Linux, Mac and #Windows PC’s.
Since the gameplay includes up to 4 v. 4 intense online or local multiplayer modes. Laser League’s frenetic yet intuitive matches are easy to play. Yet difficult to master. All in a throwback to the heyday of gaming’s more approachable arcade action. This is all from the announcement of course.

“We have admired and enjoyed Roll7’s work from a far ever since the first OlliOlli game,” said Tim Woodley, senior vice president of brand and marketing, 505 Games. “When we saw the first prototype for Laser League. We could already feel that all-too-rare ‘just one more go’ impulse. We jumped at the chance to help Roll7 take their proven studio to the next level. And realize their ambitions for Laser League.”

Laser League Announcement Trailer:

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. While 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. Each provides an edge at the crucial moment. Like all great sports, it is accessible and immediately understandable. Yet rewards dedication with deceptively complex strategic possibilities.

“It’s awesome to step outside of our ‘house style’. Developing a far bigger 3D experience that we think will redefine a genre,” said Simon Bennett, director at Roll7. “The (much bigger) team here at Roll7 are hyped. Hoping to get Laser League into people’s hands as soon as possible. Then work with the community to fine-tune the experience before launch.”

So what’s the deal?

Since we know that Laser League is in development using Unreal Engine 4. Most people know that Linux support is a given for Roll7 games. Yet we don’t know if Linux support will be available for Early Access. But, since Roll7 are known for their Linux, Mac and Windows full releases. Well it could be we have to wait a bit.

Re Linux – we are not 100% sure at this stage, our Publisher 505 will make this decision – so its in their hands!

As of this moment, we’re waiting for further announcement details from 505 Games.

Laser League will be part of the Early Access program on Steam beginning this summer. Followed by a launch on PC (hopefully Linux, Mac and Windows), PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2018.
In the mean time, players can sign up now for a chance to be part of the upcoming beta test and Early Access HERE.

OlliOlli 2: Welcome to Olliwood releases for Linux, Mac and Windows PC in August

olliolli2_welcome_to_olliwood_release_for_linux_mac_windows_pc_in_august

OlliOlli 2: Welcome to Olliwood 2D action platformer has already released on consoles, but according to a new Steam page, a Linux, Mac and Windows PC version is expected to release on August 11th. The originally OlliOlli was certainly well received and presented a uniquely challenging platforming sports title.

Apart from new game features we knew about last year, the Steam page confirms a ‘summer 2015’ release date. Which meant it would be happening sometime soon, and voila.

Features:

  • Revamped Paths and Combos: The sequel boasts all new ramps and epic hills allowing for monster air and multi-route levels. Further, OlliOlli2’s combo system has been expanded with the joy of manuals, reverts, revert manuals and grind switching giving you more control and expression than ever before.
  • Expanded Bag of Tricks: The hallowed ‘Tricktionary’ also expands with new specials including 540 Shove-its, Anti-Casper Flips and Darkslides.
  • New Worlds and Levels: Five new worlds, 50 new Amateur and Pro Levels and 250 new Challenges to tear through, along with the return of the much loved Daily Grind, Spots Mode and RAD Mode.
  • Local Multiplayer Mode: OlliOlli2 introduces a gnarly new local multiplayer mode – Combo Rush, a split-screen four-player party mode with four unique game modes.
  • Legendary Soundtrack: Once again, the crate diggers at Roll7 have scoured the airwaves for a shimmering extended soundtrack, including, Cid Rim, Lone, Faulty DL, Submerse and Mike Slott.

If you missed out on the first OlliOlli,  the game is basically a 2D platformer similar to the Tony Hawk games or the Trials series, but far more addictive and infuriatingly difficult fun.

System Requirements:

  • OS: Ubuntu 14.04 or later
  • Processor: Dual Core 2.4 GHz or higher
  • Memory: 2 GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT or equal AMD Video Card / Intel HD4000, OpenGL 3.3 or highe
  • Hard Drive: 1 GB available space
  • Additional Notes: Microsoft Xbox 360 or Sony PS4 DualShock strongly recommended.

For now, follow Roll7 for more details about OlliOlli2 on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

Roll7 will release the action adventure shooter Not A Hero mid-May

According to #developer Roll7, the #delay for NOT A HERO is due to “we’re excited to say that truly – we’re getting out the spanner and cranking it up to run at #60fps.”

“For the entire duration of time we’ve made NOT A HERO, it has been a rock-solid 30fps game. Working nicely, but at Roll7, we’re always looking for chances of adding more funs to the game.”

As you can see in the incredibly realistic and accurate diagram below, this is a monumentally great decision for all.

“Throughout the rigorous beta testing phase of Not A Hero, the most consistent feedback was to increase the frame rate to 59 frames per second,” boasted Simon Bennett, director at Roll7. “Well, we went a step further and took Not A Hero up to 60 frames per second. You’re welcome.”

NOT A HERO is available for pre-order and is set to release come May 14th on GOG, the Humble Store and Steam gets you 10% off right now. And we know the Linux release is expected to arrive sometime this summer.

Roll7 release date announced for Not A Hero for Linux, Mac and Windows PC

Not A Hero, a 2D cover-based #shooter from OlliOlli developer #Roll7 and #game publisher Devolver Digital, is coming May 7, 2015. A release on PlayStation 4 and Vita will follow later on, in fall 2015.

Playing as Steve, the assassin hired by an anthropomorphic rabbit from the future named BunnyLord to clean up the city. Steve and along with a roster of not-heroes wreak havoc on the city’s criminal underworld with explosive gunplay that resembles the classic, Blackthorne.

The wild running and gunning will get you quickly killed, so savvy players have to rely on environmental cover, leaping and rolling around to gain the advantage necessary for blowing away their enemies. Random secondary goals and mid-level events like unexpected SWAT teams keep you on your toes.

“The Roll7 team really wanted to embrace the indie developer lifestyle by delaying the release of Not a Hero on several occasions for no discernible reason,” Creative Director John Ribbins said. “Unfortunately, we also have a publisher, so we have to stop messing around and release it. So, May 7 I guess.”

Not A Hero does not play like Roll7’s 2D skater OlliOlli, but it stands out for its simple-but-deep control scheme and bombastic sense of fun. The May 7 Windows release is coming to Steam, GOG, and Humble. Fans at PAX East will be able to get their hands on the beta in March.
