LawBreakers

Cliff Bleszinski’s LawBreakers, a free to play arena multiplayer shooter set in the future, will no longer be free to play. The former Epic Games director revealed at GDC 2016 that it would have a price after all, although it will be relatively less expensive than the traditional $60 price.

Bleszinski stated that, “As the game continued to take shape, we realized free-to-play wasn’t the right fit for what we’re building. 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.”

Currently, developer Boss Key is looking to showcase the game’s unique mechanics and how it stands out from top-tier, triple-A titles. LawBreakers will be out on Steam with closed testing sessions slated before launch and an appearance at PAX East this April.

    f2p model to recoup investment is a plague tbh. It forces devs to sell every single little thing in the store….making players who care about the game end up paying more than a full price game for cosmetics, etc.

    The only one who was able to pull f2p correctly was Valve with Team Fortress 2….and that was only because it was initially a full priced game for a long time and the investment was already more than paid for.
