LEAP is a fast-paced multiplayer first person shooter game developed and published by ‘Blue Isle studios‘. LEAP is said to be coming out the 1st of March 2023 on the Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PS5, PS4 and pc. An early access came out in 2022 though. LEAP looking like it can be the game. X35 Earthwalker knows what games need to be successful in each genre. Let’s take a look.
LEAP ain’t hiding what it’s trying to accomplish. The initial description tells a lot. Read it: “fast-paced multiplayer first person shooter game”. So we know that mobility and speed is a big factor here and we hope LEAP gets it right. After all “It’s not what you, it’s how fast you do it.” To take the words of a certain someone. It’s simple, as an elite LEAP mercenary you either fight for the United Earth Defense Coalition or side with the rebel Exo-Terrans. It seems more like who pays you the most attitude.
Next they state that there will be “epic battles with up to 60 players”. This means big multiplayer matches. So there has to be big maps with hopefully quite a bit going soon within them. Now at this point, especially if you have at least average intelligence, LEAP would have reminded you of Titanfall by now. That game was fast paced multiplayer shooting. LEAP is first person though.
Leap is also gong for the more modern approach with flare and style. Players will enter the battle or lead the charge, as they say, with mounts or equipment otherwise called PV, Personal Vehicle. For example players can ride in on a rubber dingy, mechanical moose, hoverboard and even a rocket. Use your personal vehicle for traversal purposes.
We checked out some LEAP gameplay and it’s what we expected. LEAP really is fast paced. There’s thrusters, boosts, grapple hooks, launching pads and more. There’s loads of action going on as well. Shoot outs, explosions, beams, what looks like an orbital beam, artillery strike, blasts and of the sort. Due to there being up to 60 players there’s battles and interactions happening in various parts of the battlefield. We of course would like to know more about the game modes and the respawn times. The weapons have alright designs and the movement animations is looking quite basic.
Overall LEAP does look it’s going to be a good game. There are some concerns off course. Players are described as “armed to the teeth” but we do not see that. The LEAP mercenaries don’t seem so dangerous or that armed. We are liking the immense amounts of mobility though. The graphics look very good and we expect them to be better by now. The sounds are excellent, definitely liking what we are hearing. The developers ‘Blue Isle studios’ have done an excellent job so far. We at X35 Earthwalker will have to keep an ear open concerning this game. Now LEAP may have loads of mobility but it’s nothing compared to the mobility of… the ‘Earth Walk!’
