'LawBreakers' (ALL) Update Will Add New Maps, Competitive Ranked Mode, And More

by Rainier on Oct. 17, 2017 @ 9:24 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' All-Star Update is the largest content drop the game has seen to date, and is expected to be available for download beginning Thursday, Oct. 19 at 10 a.m. PT. 

The major feature is the long-awaited competitive ranked mode, Boss Leagues. This ladder mode inspired the sports theme for the rest of the content. Boss Leagues will kick off with Beta Season 0, which allows the team at Boss Key Productions time to collect feedback from participants to help improve the mode and for future seasons.

All are encouraged to share their feedback with the development team.
