Gears of War creator reveals the first gameplay footage for his new gravity-defying FPS

Gears of War creator Cliff Bleszinski and his new development studio Boss Key Productions recently debuted its very first project: LawBreakers. As many expected Cliffy B is dropping another shooter, but this time it’s in the first person and in a post-catastrophe setting.

LawBreakers is looking to set itself apart from typical futuristic, multiplayer shooters while still pulling inspiration from titles like Titanfall, Overwatch and Battleborn. There looks to be a strong focus on the connection between gameplay, the lore, and in turn, the somewhat unique looking classes. As you can see in the gameplay footage above, from the Assassin’s double jump to the Skirmisher’s jet-pack, and Cronos’ (tank class) rocket-jump, there looks to be a strong focus on traversal as well.

As for the specifics of the setting and story, humans have shattered the moon through failed experiments causing a number of geographical instabilities on earth. As a result, the planet has been rocked by earthquakes and left with a number of low-gravity areas that players can use to their advantage. While humanity has managed to re-build itself, the LawBreakers must be deployed to get a handle on the series of violent gangs that have cropped up in the aftermath. You can get more details in the debut announcement trailer:

As of now, we know this is a free-to-play, multiplayer-driven FPS set for release in 2016. We still have no details on in-game purchases, early beta access or even which platforms it will appear on.

Head to our roundups for the best gaming deals everyday of the week.
