Cliff Bleszinski’s upcoming free to play First Person Shooter LawBreakers is on the second day of its public baptism of fire in Seattle, and players are already fragging each other with gusto. After getting the go ahead from Microsoft boss Phil Spencer (as well as possibly being touted to join Microsoft), Sony’s Adam Boyes also tested the game in Seattle, going up against none other than Cliff Bleszinski himself. The results, which were uploaded to the LawBreakers Twitter account, went about as well as you’d expect.

The video also gives us another glimpse into what exactly LawBreakers is shaping up as. The video has also been released not too long after the first official Gameplay Reveal Trailer was uploaded to Youtube by the LawBreakers team. You can see that video below. On top of posting not one, but two videos (above and below) to Twitter in order to have some fun at Boyes’ expense, the LawBreakers Twitter account also released some more videos featuring other fans playing the game. You can see more of the videos on the official Lawbreakers Twitter account, or by using the hashtag #breakfree, although the majority, if not all, of the videos have been posted by the official Twitter account.
LawBreakers is the first from Bleszinski’s new studio Boss Key, which he formed after parting ways with Epic Games in 2012, the studio behind the original Gears Of War and influential games like Unreal Tournament. While the game was only officially announced recently, it seems that it has been in development since at least 2014, when rumors began circulating about what Bleszinski was working on surfaced. So far, not release date have been given for the game.
