The Lawbreakers release date is almost here, as the hardcore shooter comes to PS4 and PC.
Lawbreakers is a multiplayer first-person shooter with an August 8 release date on PS4 and Steam. It’s even been compared to Overwatch.
After a few successful beta tests, Boss Key Studios will set the servers live in time for the midnight launch on PS4 and PC.
In fact, according to the Steam page, the Lawbreakers PC servers will be switched on at 11pm.
However, fans wishing to play at launch will need to pre-order the game now and pre-load ahead of the servers going live.
Fortunately, there are multiple pre-order bundles available, including a regular edition and Deadzo Deluxe Edition.
Both bundles come with various bonuses, while PlayStation Plus subscribers can take advantage of launch discounts.

The regular game is available for £24.99 on PS4 and PC, although PS Plus members can pick it up for £22.49 for a limited time.
The Deadzo Deluxe Edition costs £34.99 on Steam, £32.99 on PS4 and £29.69 on PlayStation Plus.
Anybody pre-ordering the regular edition will receive the Hellion Sunflare Skin, Kitsune Honor-Bound Skin and Assassinated Account Portrait.
The Deadzo Deluxe Edition contains the aforementioned bonus content, as well as the following extras:
6 exclusive Character Skins:
5 exclusive ‘Hadronium Blue’ Weapon Skins for:
- Enforcer’s Aerator
- Titan’s Crisper
- Assassin’s Arc Blades
- Gunslinger’s Alpha & Omega
- Battle Medic’s Lobber
Exclusive Deadzo Weapon Stickers:

Exclusive Deadzo Account Portrait
From the creators of Gears of War, Lawbreakers features 18 different characters, nine roles and a selection of maps that re-imagine locations Santa Monica and Grand Canyon.
The only downside is that it won’t be coming to Nintendo Switch due to the console’s lack of buttons.
In a recent interview, one member of the development team said that the studio only just managed to get it working with the DualShock 4, so a Switch version would be a stretch.
A Nintendo Switch version could happen eventually, but an Xbox One release seems more likely.
