After a successful Alpha test, Cliff Bleszinski’s Boss Key Productions and publisher Nexon have announced that their gravity-defying multiplayer FPS LawBreakers will be coming to the Playstation 4. If you missed where we gave out over 100 keys to the Alpha, you are probably wondering what’s different about LawBreakers.
From the mind of Bleszinski, LawBreakers is set in a brand new futuristic world where the laws of gravity have been turned upside down. A war between the Law and the Breakers rages across a variety of iconic locations such as the boiling oceans of the Santa Monica coastline to the gravity-ravaged Grand Canyon and beyond.
Today Nexon also revealed its business model for the game which sees the base game starting at just $29.99. In addition, the company confirmed that there will be no season pass-style program and that all future content updates will be free. Also, there are no “pay-to-win” mechanics in the game, just a robust offering of cosmetics for players to earn via the game’s Stash-Box system.
“With LawBreakers, we wanted to honor the skill-based FPS games of yesteryear, all while embracing the new and pushing the genre in our own unique way,” said Bleszinski. “We found that messing with gravity, and having it mess with the player, adds a dynamic vertical element that will challenge players of all skill levels to go above their limits. Add in a variety of character role play-styles that go beyond the basic ‘tank, sniper and medic,’ a price point that we feel is fair to the player and the fact that it’s just damn fun to play – we’re confident LawBreakers will be one of the best valued and most challenging FPS games on PC or console.”
LawBreakers is going to be at E3, so we’ll be working with Nexon to get hands-on with the most recent build of the game.
While LawBreakers doesn’t have an official release date yet, it’s confirmed to be headed to Steam and PS4 (with PS4 Pro support) later this year. While we wait for the inevitable release date announcement, check out this gorgeous trailer from award-collector Blur Studios.
