LawBreakers hosts free-to-play event this weekend

By most accounts, LawBreakers is having a rough go at breaking into the shooter market, with even CliffyB admitting last week that his studio “need[s] the bodies” and that the player numbers are humbling. Part of that may just be the $30 cost barrier to entry, and now that barrier is going away, at least for the weekend: In the tersest Steam post of all time, Nexon has announced a free weekend for the game beginning this Thursday, September 28th, and ending October 2nd.

Most recently, the game patched up to 1.4, which boosted health for all characters, added out-of-combat health regen, group spawning, the new Namsan map, new daily login rewards, and more matchmaking and queueing options.

It’s almost like a shooter with almost zero artistic soul relying on being a “fast-paced” class shooter but without the pedigree of something like Quake can’t survive when charging a $30 entry fee.

Shocking.

Cliffy knows how to make good games but, might not be the best businessman it seems. And Nexon surely isn’t a great company to consult on anything but “free to play” titles it seems.

Time to make it F2P and pray it carves a niche like the F2P alternatives to PUBG have.

playing battlefront,titanfall2,BF1 and arena shooters like Unreal,Doom,Quake,Battleborn(RIP) and overwatch.

first i want to say i like this game so much.
now, if you want another OverWatch game – this game is not for you.

if you like fast hardcore shooters like quake and unreal..this one if for you even if there is no weapon pickups.

really great game, the graphic,gameplay and modes are must.
the bad side is people think its another OW Clone & The Nexton title not help it took me time to say im going to buy it even if its nexon title.

one thing is sure – cliff know how to make shooters and he done its right again.
so people – try the game in the free weekend.

I can’t view the videos at work. Any idea if this is Steam-only or will it be free for the weekend on PS4 as well?

They’re going to need more than that.

I think Xbox dodged a bullet with Cliffy not bringing it out on the platform.

Same weekend as the CoD: WWII Multiplayer PC Open Beta. More genius decisions.

Just preloaded. I havent played one since 5. I wouldn’t mind some mindless run n gun shooter in my life right now.

Oh wow, for some reason I thought this game was a f2p title. Maybe it should be considering the need to boost their numbers for match-making.

My guess is they’ve already considered it, many times over.

Doesn’t matter either way to me, b2p or f2p, I have no interest in playing the game. Just surprised to learn it wasn’t already f2p haha

I know they put a lot of hard work and money into the game – building it and promotion – but with those numbers they really need to put a bullet in it so they don’t continue to lose money. There is no way it is going to pull out from a sub 200/person average. No way on earth.
