Patch Notes: Patch 1

Contestants,

   Who’s ready for an update?!  It’s only been a little over a week since Radical Heights launched into X-TREME Early Access, and it has been a busy but very exciting time. The Boss Key team has been working hard on reviewing and implementing your feedback along with some improvements and fun additions of our own.  It’s been Dome tested and engineer approved to make its way into Radical Heights today, April 18 at 4PM/ET!

It includes things like…

Bike Tricks

You asked for bike improvements and the ability to pull off more tricks, well here you go!

 That’s just a few things we have added to the first patch.  You can find more details and more additions below! BUT before we do that, we must break for a commercial brought to you by grateful…

So thank you!  Remember, your feedback will help shape the future of Radical Heights, so be sure to jump in on the forums or social after you get hands-on with the update and let us know your thoughts!

BMX Bikes

There was a large amount of changes done to the BMX Bikes for Patch 1.  They will spin out of control less when riding normally, and we added in additional features to allow players to perform backflip as well as additional air controls.  This now means players will also get knocked off the bike if they land on their head! We're still tuning and tweaking the BMX, and we will continue to do so until we are happy with it!

  • BMX bikes should spin out of control less frequently.
