Upcoming first-person arena shooter from Boss Key Productions, LawBreakers, has had its payment model changed.
In a GDC panel, “Surrounded by 800lb Gorillas! Standing up to the competition”, it was revealed that developers had scrapped the free-to-play model announced last year, but stated the game will not cost $60.
“As the game continued to take shape, we realized free-to-play wasn’t the right fit for what we’re building,” Bleszinski said “LawBreakers is a competitive game at heart and that means balance is a big priority to me, my team, and our community. Using a digital premium model helps ensure an even playing field by giving fans access to every available role without any barriers.”
Cliff Bleszinski revealed a mature look for the game during the panel. “Being constantly compared to the current slew of colorful shooters on the market made us realize we needed to stand out from the crowd” he explained. “We decided to take a step back and explore how we could dial up the maturity in LawBreakers, going back to our original vision. The new look and feel embraces the innovative and vertical nature of our game elevated by violence, intensity and competition.”
LawBreakers will be available via Steam. A release date has not yet been announced.
