Hey there, that is Alex Tintor, co-founder of Blue Isle Studios. We’re launching a brand new sport known as Leap that has main mod help…one thing that’s fairly close to and expensive to my coronary heart.
I obtained my first style of modding at ten years outdated, once I began making mods for the Command & Conquer sequence of video games. I labored on the Command & Conquer: Crimson Alert map editor which I continued to collaborate on with a gaggle of others by means of my highschool years with the Blitzkrieg 2 mod for Command & Conquer: Generals. I met my colleague and studio co-founder Brenden years down the highway when Starcraft 2 got here out with a powerful set of modding instruments. I used to be on a mission to start out a complete conversion modding venture and had been advised I wanted to attach with Brenden.
Collectively at Blue Isle Studios, now we have introduced quite a few video games to market over the previous decade and have all the time envisioned growing a sport the place gamers are supplied the chance to mod throughout the sport and create content material that provides to the sport’s playability. Leap was the right sport to introduce our Leap Design Works suite of mod instruments.. All of our video games have superb communities, and Leap has had an particularly energetic group of modders who’ve been within the sport since our Early Entry launch final 12 months. Their content material paired with our new partnership with the modding chief Overwolf has set us as much as have a pleasant choice of user-generated content material (UGC) from modders everywhere in the world obtainable to play immediately!
A number of the UGC I’m most wanting ahead to trying out embrace a mod known as “One Bullet One Kill” by Overwolf modder “th_mrow,” and one other is situated inside a personal server from one other Overwolf modder, Lukas, known as “Leap Hardpoint.”
Along with modding being a hundred percent purposeful for console launch, Leao additionally options two modes (PVE and PVP), tons of map maps, weapons, and private automobiles as modes of transportation (my private favorites being the robo moose and hoverboard). Leap continues to develop each day as our modding group expands and continues to implement new servers and content material. We even have a strong roadmap of content material deliberate for the approaching months that features new weapons and ranges amongst different issues that we are going to reveal quickly.
Whereas Leap delivers on what gamers have come to know and anticipate from a strong FPS, we’re excited to face out with our partnership with Overwolf, and stay up for holding our servers stuffed with imaginative gamers.
This can be a huge second for Brenden and me, as we glance again on these hours spent in our teenage bedrooms come full circle; we hope with the launch of this sport, it’s going to present an avenue for brand new and skilled modders to create content material for years to come back.
Welcome to Leap! We are able to’t wait to see what experiences you’ll have and what inventive modding content material you’ll create – not that I’ll be judging or something.
