Radical Heights: Female Characters Are "Coming Soon"
Female characters are "coming soon" to Radical Heights.
Radical Heights, the new free-to-play battle royale game from LawBreakers developer Boss Key, is currently available via Steam Early Access. However, at launch, there's no option to create a female avatar; only male avatars are available currently, with the female option "coming soon."
On Twitter, the Radical Heights team addressed concerns about the lack of female characters in the game's trailer and early promotion. The Radical Heights Twitter account clarified that female characters will be in the game eventually, just not at launch. The tweet also specifies that all cosmetics can we worn regardless of your character's gender.
Female contestants will be implemented but won't be available at launch tomorrow. You'll be greeted with a "coming soon" for females tomorrow during customization. Plus all cosmetics you unlock can be worn by males or females.— Radical Heights (@Radical_Heights) April 9, 2018
Radical Heights is described as a "free *X-TREME Early Access* battle royale shooter," so it's not surprising that certain features aren't yet available. Boss Key also plans to introduce "new weapons, gadgets, customization, vehicles, game show events, game modes, and eventually a Daily/Weekly Challenges system."
Like other battle royale games, Radical Heights tasks you with surviving against other players, but it has few twists: You can collect cash and deposit it in the bank to use in a later match, regardless of whether you win or lose the game you're currently playing. The game also lets you ride BMX bikes.
On April 5, Boss Key addressed the current state of LawBreakers, admitting that it had "failed to find enough of an audience to generate the funds necessary to keep it sustained in the manner [it] had originally planned for and anticipated." However, the studio said it was committed to giving the game "the second life it deserves."
