LawBreakers, the free-to-play multiplayer FPS from Cliff Bleszinzki's Boss Key Productions, comes out of closed beta today and opens up its servers to the teeming masses. The PC open beta is for a limited time, though, ending on July 5.
With the launch of the open beta comes some new goodies for players who had been part of the closed beta:
- New Map: Vertigo: located in a remote location in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Vertigo is a high-altitude reconnaissance outpost with near suborbital elevation;
- New Mode: Uplink: capture the uplink in the center of the map and deliver to your team base, continuing to protect it until points are earned;
- Weapon Stickers: players can test a new customization feature and earn a special Beta participant Weapon Sticker by completing five matches during the event. This reward transfers to the full release of the game at launch.
LawBreakers is prepping for an August 8 launch on PS4 and Steam. The game will cost $29.99 for the base game, but a Deluxe edition will run $39.99 for extra in-game content. A pre-order gets you even more goodies.
Bleszinski stopped by the Shack E3 booth this year to promote Boss Key's upcoming FPS, calling LawBreakers "the Dark Souls of competitive first-person-shooters." Check out the full interview below.
