Boss Key Productions

Despite a player count that's bottomed out at ten people in the last week, Lawbreakers is forging ahead with a content release that includes two new maps and the launch of competitive mode, Boss League. The number of players has been reliably under a hundred every night, but studio Boss Key Productions is keeping its promise to continue on its roadmap of DLC.

Lawbreakers launched two months ago and its playerbase has dwindled since. A recent free weekend temporarily spiked it up to 1,000 concurrently playing, but it seems few, if any, stuck around. And yet, the game still has a large content block going up today. In addition to the two maps (one of which is a spooky version of an old one), it also includes balance changes, multi-region queueing and better tutorials, plus a bunch of items themed to the game's in-universe sport Blitzball (not the one you're thinking of).

Boss Key and Lawbreakers will be at TwitchCon 2017 this weekend, with a 5v5 game of streamers going head to head on stage tomorrow and time in the LAN room on Saturday evening for players to try a game and, hopefully, pick it up when they get home.
