Just saw this upcoming game. Looks amazing!

Sort of like a more adult version of overwatch

To be honest I wouldn't be surprised if this went the way of Battleborn in the PC space though I can't say anything in the console space though. Seems interesting but just doesn't grab me in any way. I think the new UT has a better chance of surviving than this.

Had a go and its alright nothing special.

After playing for about an hour I feel like it may have some legs, but I dont think it is going to take over Overwatch for an arena style 5v5 shooter atm.

Still trying to work this out but the server up times don't give much of an opportunity to play properly.

It was OK, but there are so many of these types of games I can't see it having a long life unless it gives us something unique. I hope AI bots will eventuate to fill up servers because it will struggle like First Assault otherwise.

Why do devs think faster gameplay is better these days... bring back some strategy - First Person 'Strategy' Shooter should be paramount as this type of game becomes very boring quickly.

oh man, yeah, i can't see it getting to Overwatch levels but i think it will have a cult fanbase.

also, the graphics options are a bit anaemic.

EDIT: while you can switch between characters there's no real need to do it to the extent in overwatch where team composition matters - team composition doesn't matter all that much in lawbreakers.

I'm willing to give this a try, looks kind of like a more adult version of Overwatch. Never found myself trying to try that game but this one for some reason reminds me of UT, so naturally, I want to give it a go.

I have alpha access but the server hours for each test so far were really shit because they were open while people in Australia were practically asleep.
