Finally, LawBreakers Is Free-To-Play On PC (Update: Shutting Down Sept. 14)
Update: Now there's a Steam announcement and a shutdown date of Sept. 14.
Original story: Originally announced as free-to-play, then not, then ... well, there were several more steps in LawBreakers' life, though none of them were ever "Profit." But now, everything has come full circle, and LawBreakers is free-to-play once more (just as predicted), and you can pick it up right now on Steam.
For the moment, at least, the move seems to be paying off. As of this writing, there are a whopping 100 people playing LawBreakers on Steam, the most the game has seen since November; it hasn't even had half that many since January.
The big question, though, is who's running the game? Boss Key Productions is no more, so that would likely mean it's Nexon who flipped the switch. We're not even sure that there was any official announcement -- there's none on the Steam page and the LawBreakers Twitter has been silent since February -- so we'll have to dive in for ourselves to find out what, if anything, the game has for a cash shop or restrictions. Both of those concepts always rubbed Cliff Bleszinski the wrong way, but if he's not calling the shots any more, anything goes, I guess.
