Here’s a game I never kept up to date with and never thought to mention, Lawbreakers! Coming to us from Cliff Bleszinski, the mind behind Gears of War and the Unreal Tournament games this looks to be an arena type shooter that aims to rival Overwatch in scope.
Where this game and Overwatch differ however is the type of combat that is involved. Lawbreakers is an incredibly fast paced and high octane shooter with your success measured by your twitch aiming skills and movement while in Overwatch team compisition and teamwork matter more. The games while sharing a similar genre of class based multiplayer games couldn’t feel more different in tone and pacing. Lawbreakers almost feels like a true successor to the Unreal Tournament series (aside from the reboot obviously) with extremely similar gameplay and an art style that while it may seem drab does at least make sense coming from the Gears of War developer.
Will the game do well in the long run? Well let’s just look at Paladins and Battleborn to see where that goes. Anyway that’s all for now and as always. It’s not just a game, It’s a Life.
