LawBreakers is an upcoming class-based shooter from Unreal Tournament and Gears of War creator Cliff Blezinski and is being developed by Boss Key Productions. It takes place on a futuristic and post-apocalyptic Earth where we accidentally blew up the moon (lol) and caused some significant issues back here at home; Mostly just massive earthquakes and weird gravity in some spots, no big deal. Earth is then able to rebuild, bigger & better than before, but only until violent criminal gangs attack and the LawBreakers are dispatched to use their superhuman powers to fight back.
Yes, it shares a very similar plot to basically every modern shooter out there, but this is something Cliff Blezinski has commented on, and he is adamant that LawBreakers will be different. After recently playing the Black Ops 3 beta, I could definitely understand why people might feel that LawBreakers is just a BO3 rehash with few differences. This is something we’ll have to wait and see once LawBreakers is released.
All-in-all, this little bit of gameplay that Boss Key put out looks extremely promising, and I think it shows off some pretty interesting game mechanics, specifically the grapple hook near the start and shooting behind your back. Considering that it’s going to be Free to play, LawBreakers is definitely something that I’m going to test-drive when it releases sometime in 2016.
