The first gameplay trailer for LawBreakers, the new game from Cliff Bleszinski’s Boss Key Productions has been released, along with a screenshot of the first four characters.

Grandview map, as in seen in the trailer above, is set in the Grand Canyon. A shell corporation for the Yakuza has taken it over

The competitive, team-based FPS can be played from “any angle” do to the characters’ ability to manipulate gravity. Rewards are focused on skill, not kill-streaks.

Set in an alternate future where the world has been divided into two rival factions: one determined to keep the peace, and the other a crime syndicate. Players will choose which faction to support.

The division occurred during “The Shattering” which shook up the planet’s gravity, this is where the ability to manipulate gravity comes into play.

Characters introduced today and featured in the video above are:

Kitsune – “A fast, highly maneuverable melee fighter with deadly precision. She excels when she can get up close and personal, preferring to catch her opponents by surprise. Although she is not well-suited to tackling opponents head-on, what she lacks in durability she more than makes up for in damage output and mobility.”

Maverick – “An extremely mobile and highly stylized combatant. Maverick is what you would get if you strapped armor made from an F-15 Fighter Jet onto a Spec Ops soldier. Maverick uses her jets to take to the sky and quickly move around the battlefield, raining down death with her Vulcan Gatling cannon and massively destructive Starfall ability, which allows her to take flight, then plummet, dealing massive damage to anyone caught in the blast.”

Breacher – “As a well-rounded soldier, Breacher performs well in nearly any situation. His run-and-gun gameplay is well suited for novice and experienced FPS players alike. His assault rifle and sidearm have powerful and unique abilities, but still manage to feel comfortable and easy to use. Breacher excels at quickly subduing opponents and effectively supporting teammates.”

Cronos – “An absolute brute. High durability and damage output, but very low mobility. Cronos charges the front lines, soaking damage for his allies and dishing out twice as much with his rocket launcher and ricochet grenades. Most opponents will want to stay as far away from Cronos as possible. If he gets too close to you, it’s probably too late. you’re already dead.

Formerly known as Project Bluestreak, the area-shooter was revealed via Twitch earlier this week.

LawBreakers is slated for 2016 and it is playable at PAX Prime, which kicks off today.
