LawBreakers, the first person shooter where gravity is less of a hard rule and more of a suggestion, will be having a free weekend on Steam from Thursday, September 28, 2017 until Monday, October 2, 2017, according to a news post on the game's Steam community page.
A trailer announcing the free weekend was released on YouTube. It showcases gameplay from LawBreakers interspersed with a police officer offering tactical guidance to fellow officers on the correct usage of weapons and their varying effectiveness depending on the situation.
According to a representative from Nexon posting on the subreddit for the game, the development team originally planned to host the LawBreakers free weekend for both the PlayStation 4 and Steam communities simultaneously. Unfortunately, plans for the PS4 free weekend didn't work out, perhaps partially due to "a lot more red tape" when running a free weekend on the PlayStation ecosystem as compared to the Steam ecosystem. As a result, the free weekend will only be taking place for PC players on Steam.
LawBreakers recently released Patch 1.4 which changed the game's health mechanics, added a new map, tweaked the game's respawn system, and made several other minor changes. If you don't yet own the game, it's currently on sale for 25% off on Steam. That's $22.49 or your regional equivalent for the base game and $29.98 for the Deadzo Deluxe Edition. The game might have a bit of an uphill battle to fight, though - the Call of Duty: WWII Multiplayer PC Open Beta will be taking place during the same weekend in preparation for its November 3 launch.
What do you think of LawBreakers free weekend? Do you think it will perform well considering that it's going head-to-head against Call of Duty: WWII's Multiplayer PC Open Beta? What do you hope to see added to the game in the future? Let us know in the comments below!
