LawBreakers is an awesome looking new game from Gears of War creator Cliff Bleszinski, that breaks rules, bones and the laws of physics to deliver a high octane multiplayer arena shooter full of verticality and brutal violence.
LawBreakers brings modern game design and stunning visuals to the old school Unreal Tournament-style arena shooter. It features four different character classes currently (although more will be added), each with their own specific weapons and abilities. There’s plenty of variety between the character classes, from the agile grappling hook-wielding assassin to the huge, lumbering titan. The weapons all have alt-fire modes and cannot be used by other character classes, while the special abilities are pretty inventive and are often more useful in combat than the guns are.
There are also lots of cool gravity effects at work in LawBreakers, with players able to drastically alter gravitational fields in areas – from slowing down enemies by massively increasing gravity to turning gravity off all together and watching as they float through the air (being propelled by the kickback from their guns). This playful use use of gravity distortion is not only fun to see in action, but adds a nice bit of verticality to the battle arenas.
It’s an impressive game that looks set to deliver everything we could hope for from the creator of Gears of War – big, bold and bombastic action with that all important spark of originality. Sign up now to break into the Alpha.
