505 Games in collaboration with Roll 7, have just announced their latest title, Laser League – a high-octane tron-style title whereby players will have to use teamwork, tactics and skill to active laser walls to eliminate enemies.
“We have admired and enjoyed Roll7’s work from afar 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.”

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, 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, provide an edge at the crucial moment. Like all great sports, it is accessible and immediately understandable, but rewards dedication with deceptively complex strategic possibilities.
“It’s awesome to step outside of our ‘house style’ to develop 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 to get Laser League into people’s hands as soon as possible, then work with the community to fine-tune the experience before launch.”
Laser Leauge will launch on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2018.
