With appearances on the PC Gaming Show and YouTube Live at E3’s All Access Show, Cliff Bleszinski revealed new content and the alpha roadmap today for LawBreakers, the upcoming FPS from Boss Key Productions. Beginning this weekend, June 18, players will have the chance to experience the gravity-defying action of LawBreakers in the first closed alpha test. Boss Key also released a new developer video, explaining their plans for the alpha:
In addition to scaling tests taking place over the course of the summer, Bleszinski announced there will be an Early Access program on Steam later this year. This phase will allow Boss Key to open the game up to more players while they continue to iterate on and add new features, maps, modes, roles and more.
“While we’ve given people a glimpse of the game at various events over the last year of development, this weekend is the first time we’ll begin really showing LawBreakers off publicly,” said Bleszinski. “I can’t wait for everyone to see the results of all the blood, sweat and tears our development team has poured into this project so far. And it doesn’t stop here; we’ve got a lot more content we’re working on that we’ll continue to roll out during the alpha, Early Access and beyond, collaborating with the community to shape and improve the game.”
The first new content to be added to LawBreakers during the closed public alpha tests this summer will be revealed at E3 this week in Los Angeles, where the game is playable by appointment only: “Turf War” mode, a unique take on capture-and-hold amplified by the game’s thrilling combative moments, and the “Promenade” map, based on the iconic Third Street location in sunny Santa Monica, Calif.
LawBreakers promises a bloodbath of role-based vertical team conflict, creating endless mastery and competition across an alternate American landscape. Players will choose whether to kill to uphold the “Law,” or go out for blood as a “Breaker,” as they take part in the combat raging across iconic locations including the boiling oceans off the Santa Monica coastline, a gravity-ravaged Grand Canyon and beyond.
