LawBreakers is the adrenaline-fuelled OTT multiplayer FPS from Gears of War creator Cliff Bleszinski’s new studio, Boss Key Productions, that swaps third person cover based shooting for intense gravity defying combat and unique playable characters, each with their own badass skill sets.
We first featured LawBreakers over a year ago, during the Alpha Sign Up, but it’s now in Beta on Steam and the devs have just announced a PS4 Beta players can sign up for. It’s a ridiculously cool game that offers action packed battles, with lots of verticality and plenty of blood splattering violence. Set in a futuristic America, from Santa Monica to the Grand Canyon, it takes place after an Earth-shattering event has forever changed the landscape and even altered gravity itself. Now crime is rampant and war ravages between the law-keeping ‘Law’ and criminal underbelly of the ‘Breakers’ .
LawBreakers features multiple inventive game modes a selection of different characters, each with their own skills, abilities and weapon combos that add a lot of depth to the games fast paced competitive combat. It is a ‘Hero Shooter’ like Overwatch, but it’s also very different, focusing on fast paced Quake-style run and gun combat rather than Overwatch’s more tactical TF2-style approach.
It was originally intended to be a Free to Play title, but LawBreakers is now going to be a full retail release, so this Beta will be your last chance to try it for free. If you’re remotely into multiplayer first person shooters we highly recommend checking it out as it has a lot to offer. Gears of War had OTT weaponry, but LawBreakers has OTT gameplay to back it up. Sign up now to break into the Beta!
UPDATE: This Beta Is No Longer Available
