LawBreakers
was officially announced today as a PC title to be released this summer. Its developer Cliff Bleszinski, best known for creating Gears of War, revealed that the game would be exclusive to Steam at launch and that it is now a digital premium title instead of a free-to-play game as was originally planned. It won’t cost $60, but you will have to buy it.

The developer also announced a new art direction for the game that lines up with his original visual for LawBreakers.

In the press release announcement he also took the time to answer a few of the questions you may have about the game. Here are all of his answers.

  1. Why Steam?

We explored all of our options and determined Steam is the best fit for our community and the competitive game we’re building.

  1. Why did Boss Key/Nexon decide to make changes to the game’s business model?

After careful consideration of how the game has been progressing, 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. Using a digital premium model helps ensure an even playing field by giving fans access to every available role without barriers.

  1. How much will LawBreakers cost at launch?

The price at launch hasn’t been revealed yet, but we want to provide a high quality, digital downloadable game at a compelling price. LawBreakers will not have the $60 price point of a traditional boxed product.

  1. Are you developing LawBreakers exclusively for PC? / Will LawBreakers release on additional platforms?

We’re initially developing LawBreakers for PC, then… who knows what the future holds?

  1. When can I play?

We are planning to run a number of upcoming tests before launch. Exact timings are still to be confirmed, but we encourage players to Wishlist the game on Steam to be first in the know about our upcoming announcements.
