If you were one of the lucky few that played in LEAP's last closed beta playtest, then you'll be happy to know that the team at Blue Isle Studios is taking your feedback into consideration and has already implemented a few changes and fixes to the first person shooter's PvE game mode.

Don't mistake that for meaning the game is going to be more casual, though!

When the next playtest begins on April 20th at 12PM EST, LEAP will make the PvP mode available to those looking for something a bit more competitive.

Those jumping into Special Operations again will see improvements (and bug fixes) to the UI, an increased timer to complete objectives, a swap from Titan to Pathfinder for the default class, and more. All the changes are listed in the dev blog on the official site.

These changes all focus on one core ideal: making the casual mode easier to understand, easier to participate in, and more engaging. The future holds even more for Special Operations as the team is looking at adding randomized objectives, more maps, and a tiered difficulty system to the mode.

If you want to check out the next playtest, make sure to follow the official social accounts as the LEAP team will be giving out more keys than the last test had available and you can still sign up to (hopefully) get a key on the official site.
