Boss Key’s Radical Heights Reportedly Already Surpassed LawBreakers’ Concurrent Peak Player Count on Steam – Rumor
Boss Key’s new extreme early-access battle royale shooter Radical Heights might have already surpassed LawBreakers’ peak concurrent player count on Steam.
The new free-to-play battle royale from Cliff Bliszinski’s studio released in early access yesterday, and according to SteamCharts, concurrent players peaked at 7.966 players. Boss Key’s flopped hero-shooter LawBreakers, which was released in closed beta back in March of last year, reached an all-time player peak of 7,482 concurrent players during its beta, but concurrent players quickly dropped once the game was actually released in August of 2017.
Even at the moment of writing, around 4400 concurrent players are playing the “extreme” early-access of Radical Heights, which is higher than the amount of peak concurrent players playing LawBreakers (3003) after its official launch.
Please note that these numbers are based on data from SteamCharts, and its unsure how accurate the data is. In addition, Valve just made every Steam user’s gaming library hidden by default, which might have also affected player data for Radical Heights.
Boss Key announced that they would be moving away from LawBreakers to work on a new projects last week.
Radical Heights was officially announced earlier this week. We’ve included the gameplay reveal trailer below.
Radical Heights is a free *X-TREME Early Access* BATTLE ROYALE shooter.

Survive to the end or risk it all in this irreverent action game show where everyone wants to be rich and famous.
“Radical Heights is a five month passion project for the studio as we’re creating and publishing the game entirely by ourselves,” said Zach Lowery, Creative Director of Radical Heights. “We’re huge fans of Battle Royale games along with the bright, inviting irreverence of the 80’s aesthetic. Because of that, we want to put our own spin on the genre and create a futuristic 80’s world that takes place in 2023 during an over-the-top game show where contestants battle it out for fame and prizes”.
