Another team based FPS is headed into the fray. With Overwatch and other titles coming soon, Cliff Bleszinski (CliffyB of Gears of War fame) and Arjan Brussee announced that their new company, Boss Key Productions, will soon be unveiling LawBreakers. This title, formerly operating under the codename “Project BlueStreak” will be partnered with Nexon leading us to make the assumption that it will be a free to play title.

Through a Twitch stream reveal earlier today, CliffyB and team answered some basic questions about LawBreakers and what we can expect and released the announcement trailer shown above. LawBreakers has more of a skill focus than some of its competitors and will rely heavily on symmetrical gameplay between the Law and the Breakers (the combined might of the planet’s crime cartels) in a world that has had gravity ravaged by the Moon splitting as a result of government testing on the Moon’s surface.

From the official Press Release:

“LawBreakers is a competitive team-based FPS set in an alternate future in which the world has been divided into two factions following a huge cataclysmic event known as ‘The Shattering’ that changed gravity forever. Afterward, the world recovered and ushered in a new age technological advancements providing gravity manipulation and supplement use that grants near-superhuman abilities.”

The first official gameplay will be shown this Friday morning with players attending PAX Prime being able to get their hands on the game this weekend. Stay tuned to the LawBreakers website and Twitter to see how you can help spread the word about the new title and earn your way into secret play sessions or into Alphas as a result.

    I don’t know how your gonna mention overwatch a game that at this point is probably one of the best looking games to look forward to as far as f2p mmo sites like this goes.

    This game doesn’t even have gameplay in the trailer
    I really don’t get trailers they waste a ton of money on them to display content to get the hopes up and dissappoint people the first time they actually see it..
    No gameplay to me means the game is years away from launch while overwatch already has hours of gameplay videos.

    Nexon? LOL just look how they manage their other games, full of lag and overpriced cash shop. Get ready for some pay to win and terrible customer support if you’re going to play this game.

    “LawBreakers is a competitive team-based FPS set in an alternate future”
    How can there even be a term like “alternate future”? o_O It implies that future is known beforehand, which is impossible. Developers sure do love their buzzwords…

    • Anon on August 26, 2015

      Alternate future could just mean a future that no one would expect or foresee to happen ever. Theoretically, it wouldn’t make much sense since there’s no guarantee we would know how the future is like, but realistically, there’s a good chance that the future wouldn’t be like the one described as an “alternate future.”

      • Curst on August 26, 2015

        You mean, buzzwords? Lol.

        This is science-fiction, correct? Which by definition means that it’s something that could maybe possibly somehow happen. And yet, saying that it’s alternative future implies that it can not happen? Which means it’s not sci-fi? Which in turn means what exactly? … Sigh.

          Alternate future. It’s easy. KASAXHASUNOHANA said what it (theoretically) means. It might be a different dimension where you would die because you were a black market millionaire (lol wut). So alternate future is something different than what you would expect. Not that you can predict the real future. Maybe it should be called alternate present or something. Maybe it is 2015 there and the technology advanced fastly and in WWII, Nazis won with lightsabers (how the f*** did I come up with this). That’s my theory.

        You die tonorow in an alternate future…. Or is it?

    • kasaxhasunohana on August 26, 2015

      Well if we made a game that takes place in the future but was based in a world where the Nazi’s won the war and ruled the world, couldn’t that be considered an “Alternative future” since it’s a future which can’t come to past due to the circumstances that made the world as it is.

      granted just calling it “Alternative history” is generally a better term…But still. Could work, right?

HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY?
