Steamgoers are getting their first chance to hop into LawBreakers this weekend as Nexon and Boss Key are kicking off another beta event on PC, this one open to everyone on Valve’s platform, which should add a few more bodies to the game, yeah?

The studios are touting new content for this round of beta, including the new Vertigo map in the Sierra Nevadas, a new Uplink mode, and WEAPON STICKERS. It’s the summer of stickers, man.

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 centre of the map and deliver to your team base, continuing to protect it until points are earned;
Weapon Stickers – players can test a new customisation 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.

The official launch of the game is on August 8th for both PC (through Steam) and PlayStation 4 with a base price of $29.99, so this round of the test would be a good chance to see whether the game is worth its purchase price.

Wait for it, it’s gonna launch as B2P and then transition to F2P, it offers nothing unique compared to TF2, OW and Paladins. No weapon customization, various weapon choices or skills/talent tree… nothing unique or different.

It’s a fun game. Seems well polished. Different tone from the rest of the current crop of hero or arena shooters. It doesn’t take itself deadly seriously, but it’s not cartoony. It’ll be interesting to see how team composition/meta develops, but right now with it being in beta, matchmaking kind of silly and working with your team seems an unlikely prospect at this point.

Pro-tip (from another rookie): If you decide to play it, watch the tutorials either in-game or on their youtube channel.
