There’s also a new rifle, the ability to dive through windows, and a buncha bug fixes
Radical Heights, Boss Key Productions’ battle royale game that is free-to-play, is getting its first patch. From the developer of Lawbreakers, the’80s-infused Radical Heights arrived in’XTREME’ Early Access only a week (the day after it had been announced), and while we had a pretty good time playing, its feathered mullet was definitely a bit rough round the edges. Now, patch one, of presumably arrives.
Let’s start with the BMX bikes, which are made more easy to ride. “They will spin out of control significantly less when riding generally,” the patch notes say, to which I have to ask: shouldn’t they never spin out of control while riding normally? Would anything, when ridden generally, spin out of control? It’s a incentive that bicycle handling is improved, and you have control in the air to perform completely tubular twists and flips. If you land on your head, you’ll fall off the bike, which sounds both debilitating and comical.
Players may be provided a melee alternative, letting you punch cash registers without switching from weapons to fists, which is a significant quality of life improvement and should accelerate the looting process up a little. You’ll also be able to dip something each hero needs to be able to do, through glass windows.
There’s a new rifle as well, some cosmetics in the kind of colors, and tweaks to the UI, inventory, sound effects, harm, and loot frequency, plus a host of bug fixes. You can peruse the full patch notes .
