What to Expect


Radical Heights – Reveal Gameplay Trailer [Official Video]Welcome to Radical Heights, a free *X-TREME Early Access* Battle Royale shooter. Partake in high-stakes gunplay in a sunny SoCal dome as you loot for weapons, gadgets, cosmetics, and CASH that you take with you – win or lose! Survive to the end or risk it all in this irreverent action game show where everyone…2018-04-09T13:39:08.000Z

Radical Heights is a battle royale game that is set retro-futuristic 1980’s inspired world that oozes with nostalgia. Players compete in a game show called Radical Heights, where they need to not only be the last one standing but collect as much cash as possible. This money is not only used to purchase cosmetics but buy weapons and items in-game for you to use. Your money will carry over regardless if you win or lose. Players will be able to horde and spend their cash as they please, which does possibly present some balancing issues.

The money you’ve saved can be deposited or withdrawn from ATM machines scattered across the map in $100 increments. This takes a few seconds and will leave you vulnerable to gunfire. In addition to cash, players can buy Rad Gems which are used exclusively for cosmetic items. However, these cosmetic items can also be obtained via cash, but there is a bit of a catch.

In order to actually make these items purchasable, players will need to find them in-game first. We currently do not know how much or what specific weapons are in Radical Heights. Only a few guns were shown off in the trailer and they were purchased at vending machines.

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. Like crates in other battle royale games, players can camp these spots to try and steal the items off players earning this loot. As for vehicles, players can utilize a BMX bike for quick getaways. Currently, these are the only vehicles in Radical Heights, but you can pull off some gnarly tricks!

Radical Heights has a maximum of 100 players, each of which is dropped randomly across the map at the start. There are no parachutes or fall damage so launch yourself straight down when the game starts. Avoid the locations that are fuzzy and have a purple outline. These areas will cause you to take damage over time and are not considered safe.
