LawBreakers Coming To PS4 Later This Year


Boss Key Production's LawBreakers is coming to PlayStation 4 later this year as a digital-only title. This is the first-person team based shooter from Unreal Tournament and Gears of War legend Cliff Bleszinski.


According to Bleszinski, the price of $29.99 is for everything. There's no season pass or pay-to-win schemes in the game. You pay and you play. If you need a run down of what this game is, here's CliffyB's snippet from the blog post:

The setting is the perfect backdrop for a super fast, omni-directional team-based FPS where we challenge players to get the hell off the ground. The floor is lava, bruh. It’s the skill-based competitive shooter made by shooter fans for shooter players that my team and I have always wanted to play. It honors the old and embraces the new. Old being the feeling of soaring through the air at mach-speed and rocket-jumping and such. The new as offering a variety of characters each with different movement abilities, multiple weapons, combos and more.
For example:
Our “healer” in LawBreakers can be an offensive powerhouse. In the hands of a skilled player, this role can simultaneously heal two teammates at once, all while lobbing grenades from high above like some flying human artillery cannon. Stuff like that is what LawBreakers is all about. Also we’ve added a few new things too, like being able to blind-fire behind you with any ranged weapon. Yep.

I've played LawBreakers on PC during a few betas (and luckily, they don't lock players down from talking about it via an NDA). It's a lot of fun with friends and nothing like Overwatch. It's more of the action of Unreal Tournament with hero characters. Yes, the characters have abilities and locked down weapons, but that's not truly unique to Overwatch anyway. The gameplay for it's main mode is capture the zone with a twist. The B zone has almost zero gravity so weapons and jumping feels a lot different.

And for the heck of it, here's a free theme on PS4.
