LawBreakers' Player Count Has Increased By About 60 Times Since Going F2P
Eleven days ago, LawBreakers went free-to-play. The game will still be shut down in three months, but at least for now, it's got a smidgen of new life, as its concurrent users graph on SteamCharts looks like a flatlining patient whose heart suddenly started beating again:
LawBreakers' peak over that period is 459 players. That's not amazing, but it's a lot more than what it used to be. Before this month, it hadn't broken into the triple digits since November, and the average concurrent players has been in the single digits since February.
Its 30-day average -- which includes just 11 days of it being F2P -- is 67.4. If you pro-rate that out to a full month, you'd be looking at around 200 concurrent players on average, or about 60 times the 3.3 concurrent players the game averaged in May. The numbers are trending downward slightly, but at least there appear to be enough players online to do a match.
Players who spent money on the game seem to be generally OK with the transition, judging by this Reddit thread, with most players saying they don't regret paying for it (and one saying he "enjoyed it but it was a waste of money nonetheless").
Have you jumped into LawBreakers lately? If so, we'd like to hear your impressions, whether you paid for the game before this month or if you just jumped in after the F2P transition.
