BossKey Productions’ Project BlueStreak gets a reveal trailer and a new name: LawBreakers

Since Cliff Bleszinski formed BossKey Productions and announced its first project, codenamed Project BlueStreak, last year, there has only been a slow trickle of information about the game. Earlier this week the Gears of War creator teased that a reveal would be coming on Wednesday, and sure enough, more information about the game was revealed yesterday than in the entire year leading up to it.

The real name of the game is LawBreakers and as you might have guessed, the five-on-five shooter sees players taking the role of either the law or those breaking it. Government testing on the moon has caused it to split in half, resulting in a series of massive earthquakes ravaging the globe, an event known as “The Shattering.”

LawBreakers takes place years after that event, but most of the planet is still in ruins, and gravity is much lower than it used to be. This factors heavily into the gameplay, with mobility being key. Players are encouraged to stay airborne as much as possible.

While the teaser give us a look at the world, no gameplay has been shown outside of a short Twitch stream hosted by BossKey yesterday. Luckily, there isn’t long to wait: a gameplay trailer will be released tomorrow at 6 a.m. PDT.

In addition to the trailer another new video was released, and if this one looked familiar it’s because we’ve seen it before … mostly, anyway. The video is a shot-for-shot remake of the original teaser for Project BlueStreak shown at PAX East, with one difference: Floating rocks and debris are clearly visible in the background during the outdoor sections.

BossKey will be offering hands-on access to LawBreakers at PAX Prime, which kicks off this Friday and runs through Sunday. If you won’t be attending PAX, your best bet at seeing the game before its release is to hope you make your way into one of the upcoming alphas. More info is available on the game’s website.

LawBreakers will launch in 2016, and while there is a possibility that it may come to consoles later on, for now the PC is the only platform targeted for release.
