Cliff Bleszinski's Project Blue Streak Renamed 'Lawbreakers'

Cliff Bleszinski's new studio, Boss Key Productions, has taken the wraps off its arena shooter, and renamed it 'Lawbreakers.'

Gears of War creator Cliff Bleszinski has given more details, along with an official title, to his next game project.

Previously known as Project Blue Streak, the game has been redubbed "Lawbreakers." The game is a 5v5 arena shooter where two teams, Laws and Breakers, battle one another. Lawbreakers is unlike most arena shooters as players should expect a more vertical experience through the use of jetpacks, grappling hooks, and additional accessories as well as a large variety of weapons.

Bleszinki also notes he would like the game to appeal to a wide audience, so there will be a number of female characters to play as. He described the game as being about "gangs, guns, and gravity."

          Because someone just killed two people and filmed it in first person, is my guess.

              That's cool. I was just clarifying why BC wrote what he wrote. Ask him :)

        Feels like every day is be worst day for the good ole US of A. Wasn't there a shooting just last month? Seems like there is a shooting every few weeks.

      So not excited about this. Waiting for gameplay, but that cinematic trailer sounded so generic and uninspired.

      Is this for real wtf? its like amateur hour I don't get it? Also still no gameplay really? how long are they going to milk it?

      This is crazy, I think I don't even care anymore unless they show gameplay today.

      Also man they sure like making big deal out of everything.

        To be fair, Nexon rarely launches these kinds of marketing campaigns in the US. I don't think that's their forte.

        Yep. I've already not cared about this thing twice.

        Attention all advertising: show me why I should care about your thing, don't just tell me.

          This is the guy who designed Unreal Tournament, which is the closest thing to an Old Testament for the Shack. How does this thing not get at least a little love?

            Unreal Tournament was for dorks in jeans shorts. Quakeworld was the real game.

      That was fucking horrible. No gameplay footage. It was 4 guys talking about how great it is on a couch. So sad. I sorta hope this fails now because of that.

        Wow, that was the first I've ever seen 4 guys jerk each other off with their pants on. Come on, show some gameplay!

        Wait, what are you talking about? Four guys on a couch? All I see is a video for the reveal trailer.

      i watched the twitch stream. it was hilarious. Potato quality. it cut out multiple times. no gameplay. They probably spent a millon dollars on that 30 second trailer. They actually built all the armor and guns and 3d printed them and hired actors to be in the trailer.

      lots of stupid comments like "all the games have wall running now so we won't do that" etc

      Enough already. Can we just have a game or movie with a proper Thundarr setting? Runaway planet between the earth and moon, 2000 years later (but it looks more like a year later since people are still wearing 'modern' clothes) earth is reborn with sorcery and super science where the laws of nature have been 'bent' to some degree.

      YA! I want that movie and game tie-in.

            I know, I was totally agreeing with you :) and made an example to back you up. I am not sure why on earth they think its new?

      5v5 arena shooter? What a complete and utter waste of a somewhat decent world narrative.

      eh I thought the game itself sounded allright. I'll give it a shot probably.

      The setting seems great and like a lot can be done with it. A 5-5 shooter though? Kinda seems like a waste of that narrative and setting, I guess not much has really been shown yet so we'll see.

        I agree the settings sounds awesome it has potential.

        Friday is due or die for them when they finally show it, we shall see.
