Lawbreakers aimed to mix Team Fortress 2's class-based team combat with Quake's arcade shooting. The old-school FPS DNA comes from Boss Key co-founder Cliff 'CliffyB' Bleszinski's experience working on Unreal as well as the first three Gears of War games. Unfortunately, the game hasn't attracted a large playerbase on desktop (it's much harder to tell player count on PS4). But Boss Key is soldiering forth and released a feature roadmap into 2018, announcing a new map today and another class to come before year's end. Bleszinkski referenced League of Legends' slow climb from a Warcraft III mod into the juggernaut it is today as reason not to be discouraged in a Eurogamer interview last month.
This weekend will be a tough window for Lawbreakers to attract more players given that Call of Duty: WWII's PC open beta starts on Friday. Plus, Bleszinksi's former company Epic Games' PUBG-aping free-to-play game Fortnite: Battle Royale just broke a million players on its first day.
