Cliff Bleszinski's Boss Key Productions announced today that a closed beta for its first-person arena shooter Lawbreakers will be coming later this month. Running from Thursday, March 16, through Sunday, March 19, fans looking to get their hands on the fast-paced, gravity-defying shooter can sign up at the Lawbreakers website here.  

Bleszinski and Boss Key studio communications manager Rohan Revas also talked about their upcoming appearance at PAX East later this week, as well as Lawbreakers impending beta in a video published on the Lawbreakers YouTube channel. You can check the video out down below.

Our Take
With Bleszinski's previous experience in fast-paced shooters like Unreal, Lawbreakers looks poised to be the next big shooter to take what is old and make it new again. As the game enters beta, it will be interesting to see what has changed, and if it really has what it takes to compete with the likes of other ability-based shooters like Overwatch.
