LawBreakers, formerly known by its codename BlueStreak, is the first game by Boss Key Productions founded by a veteran videogame developer Cliff Bleszinski – a long-time employee of Epic Games, who was engaged in development of such franchises as Gears of War and Unreal Tournament. Nexon, known from releasing games like Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies, United Eleven, or Navy Field 2: Conqueror of the Ocean, is the publisher of LawBreakers. This is a free-to-play team-based FPS for PC and PS4.
The action of the game is set in the future. In the consequence of secret experiments, the Moon gets destroyed, which heavily influenced forces of nature. Since then, the Earth experienced massive earthquakes and at some places the gravity changed, while at some it disappeared completely. People united in order to rebuild destroyed cities, yet some of them decided to take advantage of the chaos. Because of that, two sides came into existence: Breakers – a criminal group, and Law – a peacekeeping organisation. After they chose one of the two sides, players are deployed to one of the damaged cities to fight for control. The plot does not play a big role in the game – it is there simply to give the conflict a reason to exist.
LawBreakers for PC and PS4 focuses on five-on-five multiplayer matches and does not offer the singleplayer mode. Gameplay is fast and dynamic, but it differs from other games of such kind due to the gravitation that's prone to change. Additionally, after the cataclysm the world took a step forward, so the characters in the game can use technologically advanced equipment, like a jetpack, that allows you to reach otherwise inaccessible places.
