Just because SteamSpy says things look grim doesn’t mean Boss Key Productions and Nexon are throwing in the towel on LawBreakers just yet. To hammer home the point, the new LawBreakers All-Star update has been announced, bringing a competitive ranked mode, new maps, and a bunch more.
The new competitive ranked mode is known as the Boss Leagues, a seasonal ladder with six total tiers for players to climb. Players have to play ten placement matches in order to qualify for a ranking and players must be at minimum level 5 in order to participate in the Beta Season 0.
The new competitive sport theme has also informed the game’s latest map, Gateway, a hovering Blitzball arena map. The update will also feature All-Star Stash drops filled with sports team-styled goodies which can either be purchased on their own or earned upon leveling up, along with a new Blood Moon variant of the Redfalls map, the ability to queue across multiple regions in order to help find matches faster, a new guided tutorial, and a host of balance adjustments.
It all lands to players on Thursday, October 19th. You can take a look at everything on the way in the developer update video below.
Between this and the game’s scheduled arrival to TwitchCon, it would seem like LawBreakers isn’t a done deal yet. That said, if a free weekend wasn’t enough to rouse people into the game, we’re not sure this update will be enough. Here’s hoping that those still playing are pleased by the new content.
