'LawBreakers' (ALL) eSports Tournaments At DreamHack and TwitchCon

by Rainier on Oct. 12, 2017 @ 8:53 a.m. PDT

LawBreakers is a competitive FPS featuring team-based action from any angle. Its characters and spaces manipulate gravity to create a dynamic style of gameplay that rewards skill – not streaks.

Set in a futuristic rebuilt America, players will choose whether to kill for the nobility of the “Law,” or go out for blood as a “Breaker,” as they take part in the conflict raging across iconic locations including the boiling oceans off the Santa Monica coastline, to a gravity ravaged Grand Canyon and nearly unrecognizable Mount Rushmore.

After a huge cataclysmic event known as ‘The Shattering’ changed gravity forever. Society has recovered in a manner of speaking

Afterward, 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.

LawBreakers is excited to support its growing competitive community by participating in two major gaming events this month. Audiences will have the opportunity to watch some of the best teams out there go head-to-head in intense showdowns.
