On Friday, Steam announced that the director’s cut of Indiegogo alum Lazer Team is now available on its digital distribution platform. The Rooster Teeth production film received over $2.3 million during its crowdfunding campaign in 2014 and raised an additional $1 million in theatrical release pre-sales last year.
“Four small-town losers stumble across an alien crash site containing an incredible battle suit. One round of bickering and a quick scuffle later, they each find themselves wearing a piece of the suit, which has genetically bound itself to them. Now they must work together as one to save humanity. With the government chasing after them and desperate to remove their new equipment at ANY cost, the foursome must learn to use a strange alien device meant for only one person, train for a battle against an omnipotent enemy, and not kill each other in the process. They may not be strong, smart, or talented…but they’re Lazer Team.”
The launch of Lazer Team’s Director’s Cut comes just after director Matt Hullum confirmed the film’s sequel would start filming this upcoming spring. Last summer Hullum and his team stated the sequel would premiere on YouTube Red:
“Thanks to this amazing partnership with YouTube and the platform’s incredible reach, we’ll be able to bring ‘Lazer Team 2’ to millions of fans across the world.‘Lazer Team’s’ success on YouTube Red proved that with the right partner we’re able to capture new audience and give our fans more access to the content they love, and we couldn’t be happier to be doing it again.”
