LEAP into the New Year with a New Update!

Hello Mercenaries,

We're kicking off the New Year with a shiny update! Through our community events, playtests and review of feedback from all angles, we've been hard at work to implement changes that we believe will be most impactful. Many issues are addressed in today's roll out.

The main focus of today's update is on quality of life improvements, improved visuals and performance. We've broken it down into a few categories to make it easier to digest.

Armory Makeover

The number of items players can add to their Armory can be a little overwhelming, so we've given it a makeover to make things a bit smoother and easier to navigate.

Player Taunts



Now that we have the big picture, we can discuss improvements to performance, balance, UI, and more. Because of amazing community members like yourself, LEAP is constantly evolving and will be in a great position for launch! We will be sharing a lot more about LEAP in the coming weeks, so stay tuned. Let's take a look at what's changed in the last few months.
