TORONTO, CANADA – MARCH 1, 2023 – Blue Isle Studios, a Veteran independent video game developer, today announced that their team-based, aerial, first-person shooter LEAP is available now on PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®5 computer entertainment systems, Xbox One and Xbox Series X the all-in-one game and entertainment systems. To supercharge the game’s launch on all platforms, LEAP has partnered with all-in-one modding leader Overwolf to deliver a steady stream of community-created content including map variants and unique game modes like “One Bullet, One Kill” at launch and much more to follow. 
LEAP arrives on consoles with an extensive selection of user generated content, including private servers, diverse official maps and modes and a robust content roadmap. Included at launch is notable content from Overwolf modder Thomas who has come up with Sniper vs. Runners where the goal is to either snipe the runners from a distance as a sniper or dodge the snipers’ bullets while trying to complete your goals as a runner on a vertical parkour map. Another Overwolf modder Lukas has created a private server dubbed LEAP Hardpoint, a multiplayer mode that randomizes players’ weapons by requiring everyone to vote for them. Only Dragons is another mod created by Overwolf modder Eru, where players are able to replace all vehicles in game with dragons. 

Wanna make your own map, mode or weapon?!?! With ‘LEAP Design Works’ the sky’s the limit offering endless opportunities for community content through new modding features that allow fans to modify virtually anything in LEAP. Players can make new modes of play, build original maps, create slick character skins, modify vehicles physics, redesign weapons and more. Through the LEAP modding suite, modders can unleash their creativity. The intuitive tools provide huge potential for LEAP as they encourage creators to design content that will be featured within the game on both PC and console. 
Overwolf creators are not the only modders currently featured - LEAP features a variety of mods from the most advanced modders to novice creators who are using the Unreal Engine for their first time. LEAP community members include several high school students from New Jersey’s Bergen County Tech that have developed UGC content available and playable today. The new modding capabilities in LEAP are for everyone and provide endless opportunity for gameplay within the high flying action packed shooter. 
In LEAP, players select from four unique hero classes, each delivering a distinct balance of power, agility and defense as well as epic abilities that bring shock and awe to their foes. Call in orbital strikes, set up automated turrets, or control guided cruise missiles as each exosuit is armed to the teeth. Large-scale combat takes place on a variety of stages and skilled mercenaries use jetpacks, grappling hooks and highly distinctive Personal Vehicles to close the distance on control points and active firefights. Nothing is more menacing than a LEAP mercenary saddled on a mechanical moose galloping at full speed!
