LawBreakers, the competitive sci-fi shooter from Gears of War designer Cliff Bleszinski, will be released on August 15th, developer Boss Key Productions announced today at E3 during the PC Gaming Show. The game will come out on both PC, via Steam, and on PS4, where it will play with improved graphics and smoother performance if you have a PS4 Pro. At one point, LawBreakers was going to be a free-to-play release, but Bleszinski announced last year that the game would switch to a paid model, but with a price tag less than a traditional console game. We now know the retail price will be a modest $29.99.
If you’ve never seen footage of LawBreakers, all you really need to know is that is a mind-bogglingly fast-paced shooter that has players performing high-speed aerial maneuvers, precision aiming, and gravity-manipulating stunts. It’s a role-based shooter, similar to Blizzard’s Overwatch, so you’ll be able to pick a distinct play style and use those skills to try and dominate deathmatch bouts. Boss Key Productions held a closed, one-month beta starting back in April of this year, and it’s planning an open beta to start later this month.
