[Register now] Published by Nexon America and developed by Boss Key Productions using Unreal Engine 4, LawBreakers begins its first public round of Closed Alpha tomorrow. Lucky players who registered to become a tester and received an invite to tomorrow’s test will get their hands on the first wave of content. LawBreakers is being described by IGN as “Overwatch meets Unreal Tournament.”
This shouldn’t come as a surprise, as the founder of Boss Key Productions is Cliff Bleszinski, who previously held a key development role in Unreal Tournament and Gears of War at Epic Games. Tomorrow is the first of several scaling tests taking place over the course of summer and leading up to an Early Access phase on Steam later in 2016. More content will be added for subsequent tests.
LawBreakers promises a bloodbath of role-based team conflict, creating endless 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.
