CliffyB and Nexon Announce "LawBreakers"
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.
