After officially announcing LawBreakers (formerly Project BlueStreak) last week, Boss Key Productions have shared the first gameplay footage in a new trailer released this weekend.
Set in a post-apocalyptic future following something called "The Shattering", LawBreakers sees two forces vying for control of the new world - a peacekeeping organisation (the Law), and a powerful crime syndicate (the Breakers). The game is described as a competitive first-person shooter that's "all about skill, not streaks."
The new trailer offers a look at the Grandview map, which is set in a Yakuza-controlled Grand Canyon, and four playable characters:
- Kitsune: Kitsune is a fast, highly maneuverable melee fighter with deadly precision. She excels when she can get up close and personal, preferring to catch her opponents by surprise. Although she is not well-suited to tackling opponents head-on, what she lacks in durability she more than makes up for in damage output and mobility.
- Maverick: An extremely mobile and highly stylized combatant. Maverick is what you would get if you strapped armor made from an F-15 Fighter Jet onto a Spec Ops soldier. Maverick uses her jets to take to the sky and quickly move around the battlefield, raining down death with her Vulcan Gatling cannon and massively destructive Starfall ability, which allows her to take flight, then plummet, dealing massive damage to anyone caught in the blast.
- Breacher: As a well-rounded soldier, Breacher performs well in nearly any situation. His run-and-gun gameplay is well suited for novice and experienced FPS players alike. His assault rifle and sidearm have powerful and unique abilities, but still manage to feel comfortable and easy to use. Breacher excels at quickly subduing opponents and effectively supporting teammates.
- Cronos: An absolute brute. High durability and damage output, but very low mobility. Cronos charges the front lines, soaking damage for his allies and dishing out twice as much with his rocket launcher and ricochet grenades. Most opponents will want to stay as far away from Cronos as possible. If he gets too close to you, it’s probably too late - you're already dead.
LawBreakers is a free-to-play arena shooter, the first game from Boss Key Productions, the new studio founded by Gears of War creator and longtime Epic staffer Cliff Bleszinski.
