Some people like to make life difficult for themselves. You know the sort – they’ll inexplicably take on an extra project at work they really hate, or offer to do a sponsored swimathon when they can’t swim and are made of alka-seltzer. That kind of thing.
If that sort of person were a game, it’d be Lawbreakers. Because short of releasing it on a special sort of disc that gives you the runs, the devs really couldn’t have made the launch much trickier for themselves.
The first issue is, it’s attempting to cram itself into a niche that’s full to bursting, with most of that being down to one hugely dominant game – Overwatch. As with that title, Lawbreakers is what they now call a ‘hero shooter’ you see.
