The new multiplayer shooter game from Gears of War designer Cliff Bleszinski, LawBreakers will no longer be a free-to-play game.

The game was teased and then annouced last year by designer and co-founder of Boss Key Productions, Cliff Blezinski. LawBreakers is under development and was announced that the game would be launched as free-to-play and will be for PC platform only, but he hinted that he may talk with the developers of other platforms as well.

However, today during his press conference at Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, revealed some information about his forthcoming game. The LawBreakers is not a free-to-play game anymore. According to him, it didn’t ‘fit’ the game.

“As the game continued to take shape, we realized free-to-play wasn’t the right fit for what we’re building. LawBreakers is a competitive game at heart and that means balance is a big priority to me, my team, and our community. Using a digital premium model helps ensure an even playing field by giving fans access to every available role without any barriers.”

“We decided to take a step back and explore how we could dial up the maturity in LawBreakers, going back to our original vision. The new look and feel embraces the innovative and vertical nature of our game elevated by violence, intensity and competition.”

Moreover, the game will Steam exclusive at launch and won’t either cost $60.

“At the end of the day, there’s got to be a halfway point between completely free-to-play and sleazy, and $60, day one, disk-based.”

Additionally, the Steam page of LawBreakers revealed system specifications for the game and according to it, the game will be supporting Microsoft’s API DirectX 12 and set for release in ‘summer’.
