Boss Key Productions has detailed a new update for its '80s-themed battle-royale game Radical Heights. As well as the usual bug fixes and optimization tweaks, there's new cosmetic items and Kill Cards.

On the cosmetic side of things, there are three new hairstyles, gloves, shirts and a fanny pack, as well as four new emotes and ten new Kill Card option. All customization options have been merged into the Prize Room. For BMX bikes, there are all new ramps to do tricks off of, variable jump heights, and easier spinning/flipping. There's a whole new gadget called the Scanner to try out. It lets players detect enemies, with their location at the time they were scanned revealed on the mini-map temporarily. A number of weapons including the Uzi, M12, and FAL have been balanced.

 

In terms of general updates, players can now rotate their characters by clicking and dragging. Online friends are now sorted to the top of the friend's list, and performance optimizations when switching to and from aim down sight or scope view have been implemented. Head over to the post for full details of everything added as part of the latest update.

As well as the new content which has arrived as part of the new patch, Boss Key Productions also teased future features set to arrive in Radical Heights. These include ammo splitting, a new game show event, major changes to the map and sprint toggle options. No details were given as to the exact timings of this upcoming content.

 

Radical Heights is the battle-royale shooter from LawBreakers developer Boss Key Productions. The game is positioned as a series of rounds in a game show, with an announcer serving as each match's commentator. The game is currently only available as part of Steam Early Access, though Lead Designer Cliff Bleszinski teased a possible Xbox One release over on Twitter.
