Boss Key Productions Announce “LawBreakers”
Boss Key Productions, the development studio founded by veteran videogame developers Cliff Bleszinski (Of Unreal and Gears of War fame) and Arjan Brussee (Killzone and Jazz Jackrabbit!), today announced the official title of its highly-anticipated first game: LawBreakers (formerly known by its codename, “Project BlueStreak”).
LawBreakers is a competitive team-based FPS set in an alternate future in which the world has been divided into two factions following a huge cataclysmic event known as ‘The Shattering’ that changed gravity forever. Afterwards, the world recovered and ushered in a new age technological advancements providing gravity manipulation and supplement use that grants near-superhuman abilities. Now, the new technology rages and two forces fight for control; a peacekeeping organization charged with upholding the law, and a highly-organized crime syndicate bent on breaking it. Players will be asked to choose a side – it’s LAW versus BREAKERS.
Rumour has it that it’s going to be playable on PC and free-to-play to boot! Interested? Then you may want to check out the debut trailer released earlier by Boss Key:
It looks like they’re just teasing for now, but a proper gameplay trailer has been promised for tomorrow at 5pm GMT/ 9am EDT/ 6am PDT, presumably as part of the PAX Prime lineup. Speaking of PAX, if you happen to be in the area (long shot, I know) you’ll have the opportunity to get an early hands-on with LawBreakers on the show floor.
