Radical Heights is a battle royale game that is set retro-futuristic 1980's inspired world that oozes with nostalgia.

Radical Heights is a free to play game that thrusts Boss Key into the battle royale craze that PUBG and Fortnite started, though with an 80's theme.

"Radical Heights", which goes live as an early-access title on Steam, is described as a last-person-standing shooter with an '80s aesthetic and a game-show twist. "Just like cake, though, you probably couldn't indulge yourself with it everyday - there just isn't enough of substance to keep you coming back for dessert when there are other, more enticing things on offer".

Though an interesting concept, Cash could be easily exploited if they add microtransactions, as players with lots of money to spare could use their wealth to buy themselves an in-game advantage. However, its release time proved to be unfortunate, especially since the blockbuster PC online game PUBG released roughly at the same time, which is why the market environment for Lawbreakers but also for first-person shooters, in general, became boring. In order to actually make these items purchasable, players will need to find them in-game first.

Radical Heights will launch in early access tomorrow, which also coincides with the huge new Retribution event in Overwatch (probably bad timing there).

We also know there will be powerful gadgets like a deployable trampoline, remote explosives, inflatable decoys, and confetti bombs. Radical Heights also embraces various gameshow elements such as a spinnable prize wheel or prize doors you can open.

Vehicles also seem to be in, as the trailer shows two players riding what appears to be a BMX bike. We'll have to see as the project becomes fleshed out further. Boss Key says it would like to transition the game to free-to-play, but can't do so without more time, money, and publisher support.

The shooter is slated to stay in early access for a year and will launch tomorrow in a playable, yet unfinished, state.
