Today BossKey Productions and Nexon officially announced via press release that Cliff Bleszinski’s FPS LawBreakers will come to PS4.
The game has made headlines thanks to its omni-directional, traversal-heavy gameplay, and will be launched on simultaneously on PS4 and PC (via Steam), also featuring enhancements for PS4 Pro.
While no specific release date was included in the announcement, we learn that the standard edition of the game will cost only $29.99. There won’t be any season pass, and all future content updates will be free. Pay-to-win microtransactions won’t be on the menu either. The “Stash-box system” will just offer a “robust offering of cosmetics,” that players will be able to earn.
BossKey Founder Cliff Bleszinski offered a comment with the press release:
“With LawBreakers, we wanted to honor the skill-based FPS games of yesteryear, all while embracing the new and pushing the genre in our own unique way, We found that messing with gravity, and having it mess with the player, adds a dynamic vertical element that will challenge players of all skill levels to go above their limits. Add in a variety of character role play-styles that go beyond the basic ‘tank, sniper and medic,’ a price point that we feel is fair to the player and the fact that it’s just damn fun to play – we’re confident LawBreakers will be one of the best valued and most challenging FPS games on PC or console.”
Nexon President and CEO Owen Mahoney also commented, underlining the fact that LawBreakers will be Nexon’s first console release:
“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Cliff and his team to bring such a unique and challenging combat experience to PS4. This marks a major milestone for Nexon as we launch onto console for the first time in the company’s history.”
The PS4 version of the game will be playable at E3, and below you can see a few illustration, artwork and screenshots, alongside about three minutes of PS4 gameplay, and a rather spectacular cinematic trailer by Blur Studio.
