As promised over the weekend by Cliff Bleszinski, Boss Games had some big news to share with PS4 players this week. The developers announced that PS4 players will be able to jump into the competitive world of “LawBreakers” when the game finally launches, and that the game will be available for $30.
The company describes LawBreakers a game set in “a brand new futuristic world where the laws of gravity have been turned upside down”. In the game a war between the Law and the Breakers rages across a variety of iconic locations such as the boiling oceans of the Santa Monica coastline to the gravity-ravaged Grand Canyon and beyond.
Today Nexon also revealed its business model for the game which sees the base game starting at just $29.99. In addition, the company confirmed that there will be no season pass-style program and that all future content updates will be free. Also, there are no “pay-to-win” mechanics in the game, just a robust offering of cosmetics for players to earn via the game’s Stash-Box system.
“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,” said Bleszinski. “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.”
“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Cliff and his team to bring such a unique and challenging combat experience to PS4,” said Owen Mahoney, President and CEO, NEXON Co., Ltd. “This marks a major milestone for Nexon as we launch onto a home videogame console for the first time in the company’s history.”
The PS4 version of LawBreakers will make its debut at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles, June 13-15, and attendees will be among the first to experience its unique brand of gravity-defying combat.
The PS4 and PC versions of the game will launch simultaneously, with the PC version hitting Steam. The company did not set a release date at this time, but may announce one at E3 this year.
