New LawBreakers Alpha Test Dates Announced

Here's when you can play the Lawbreakers alpha.


LawBreakers, the multiplayer arena-based shooter designed by Gears of War creator Cliff Bleszinski, will have a second alpha test on July 9 and July 10.

The alpha test will run from 9 AM to 9 PM PDT/5 AM to 5 PM BST on both days, and include a new map called The Promenade. Along with this, the alpha will have the Overcharge game mode, which is developer Bosskey's take on Capture the Flag.

For those that don't already have an alpha test access key, publisher Nexon has said there will be "more tests and key giveaways" soon. Those with a key can participate in every public alpha test.

Changes to the game that have been made since the first alpha have also been detailed. These were made based on feedback from players. Take a look below to see a complete list.
