Boss Key Productions has closed down, the studio’s found Cliff ‘CliffyB’ Bleszinski announced in a statement yesterday evening. The Lawbreakers developer released Radical Heights into Steam Early Access just under a month ago, but it seems this last ditch attempt at saving the studio hasn’t proven enough.
Lawbreakers was sadly one of the lowest profile failures of 2017. It was a decent game that arrived with all the impact of a gone off banana thrown with a broken wrist. After several attempts to get its heart pumping again, development was canceled last week. And here we are, four days later, and develop Boss Key Studios has announced its new project - Radical Heights. It's a free-to-play 80's game show-themed battle royale shooter, seemingly laser targeted at today's hottest gaming trends. Too little too late? We'll have to find out.
We’ve been a bit of a dry territory for graphics card driver updates, a sort of sweet mercy for our download caps. This little situation has come about because there’s been practically zero AAA games to speak of, the usual titles which justify Nvidia or AMD kicking into action. Nvidia’s got itself into gear though, releasing a new GeForce Game Ready Driver for Lawbreakers, Ark: Survival Evolved’s proper launch, Dark & Light and Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice.
In case you weren't aware, the Lawbreakers PC beta took place this weekend, some six weeks before the proper launch of the fast-paced online shooter. If you missed it then you might be able to squeeze some in today, however, the servers are due to go down imminently. In the absence of getting to play CliffyB's latest shooter for yourself, here are some Low vs Ultra graphics comparison sliders for Lawbreakers, letting you just how tweakable the PC graphics settings are.
Nvidia has just released its latest GeForce Game Ready driver. The GeForce 384.76 WHQL driver adds support and up to date performance optimisations for both BossKey Games’ LawBreakers open beta, and Spider-Man: Homecoming. Before you go getting excited about a new Spider-Man title though, this is a five-minute virtual reality experience designed to tie in with the new Spider-Man: Homecoming movie. My Spidey senses aren't exactly tingling.
When a new arena shooter comes out and the development lead has "created Unreal Tournament" on his resume, you should sit up and take notice. That's one Cliff 'CliffyB' Bleszinski, FPS extraordinare, who's working on LawBreakers with his new studio BossKey. At heart a class-based shooter, LawBreakers pits teams of killers against one another; the Law versus the 'Breakers.
Remember LawBreakers, the new free-to-play PC shooter from Gears of War creator Cliff ‘CliffyB’ Bleszinski? The one where humanity has blown up the moon? Well don’t worry, it hasn’t been cancelled, but CliffyB has announced it’s no longer going to be F2P, launching instead as a premium title.
We’ve finally got our hands on some of the first gameplay footage of Cliff Bleszinki’s LawBreakers. As you’d expect from one of the lead designers of Unreal Tournament, LawBreakers is a sci-themed arena shooter, albeit team-based and with player classes.
Gears of War creator Cliff ‘CliffyB’ Bleszinski has taken the wraps off of BlueStreak, or Project BlueStreak if you like, and erm... it turns out it’s actually called LawBreakers. The team at Boss Key Studios has settled on LawBreakers then which isn’t the most inspiring name, but lest we judge a book by its cover, we’ve got the first details on this multiplayer shooter.
