LawBreakers, the multiplayer first-person shooter, designed by Cliff Bleszinski  and Boss Key Productions, is getting another closed alpha test. The alpha will occur from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. PT on both July 9 and July 10.

The new test will be running on the game’s 0.4 patch, which includes multiple updates and a new map, Promenade.

“Once a part of the mainland California before the cataclysmic event known as The Shattering, Promenade takes place on Santa Monica Island in the newly rebuilt California Keys,” described on the game’s official forum. “Known for being an affluent shopping destination, the Promenade landscape is now a contested battleground between the LAW and BREAKERS, as both forces fight for control of the location’s abundant gravity anomalies.”


Listed below are the new changes coming with the patch:

Core Gameplay
– New “Skip Jump” mechanic: press Jump (SPACE) within a few frames of landing to maintain momentum

– Afterburners zero-fuel cooldown reduced from 15 to 12 seconds
– Hydra spin-up time increased from 3.3 to 4 seconds
– Flux grenade cooldown reduced from 20 to 8 seconds
