Developer Boss Key Productions’ high-flying gravity-defying shooter, LawBreakers, is getting a major content update later this year.
Boss Key Productions revealed the update’s content, and it includes a new map, based in the United States, new features to make the game more welcoming to new players by adding gameplay and video tutorials to walk you through the different abilities of some heroes as well as continued game improvements. LawBreakers will also be getting a new class. Here is everything coming in September’s update:
New Onboarding Experiences
We recognize that new players might be turned off due to a lack of knowledge on the ins and outs (and ups and downs) of the game. We are improving our new player onboarding experience with new tutorial gameplay features along with new tutorial videos. We believe these new changes will give players (both new and old) the knowledge they need to begin competing at a high level and to understand the nuances of the game and the classes.
Continued Game Improvements
LawBreakers is not a fire and forget title. It’s a game we crafted to run for years. But before we talk long term, we start by thinking small… this is why we are committed to continual, rapid fire updates to the game. This allows us to be responsive to issues brought up by the community and iterate on balance changes as is needed. Some games go months between updates and while that may work for them, it doesn’t work for LawBreakers. We’re going to continue to listen to your feedback and update the game rapidly, so keep sharing your thoughts with us.
The inaugural post-launch map release is Namsan, the first map set outside a post-shattering United States. It is currently in testing and is slated for release later this month. As with everything map, mode, and class related in LawBreakers, all players who own the game will get this map for free.
Our content update coming soon isn’t just about a new map, we’re also experimenting with entirely new modes. We call these Skirmishes, and each one is temporary. They’re all about playing the game different than you can in Quick Match, and to start things out we’re going to drop our Team Deathmatch Skirmish in a brand-new playspace. Yep, we’ve been listening.
