According to the developer, the Steam community’s hosting of the game has been positive; however, there has not been the best start for LawBreakers in terms of a number of players.
It's trash don't try to copy Overwatch
bruh.. take it easy ^_^ It plays nothing like Overwatch though...
Bruh, yes it does. Plain and simple
The lads clearly never played Quake. He probably thought Halo 5 was a CoD clone. Witcher was a Elder Scrolls copy.
Some posts are seriously embarrassing to read. I mean, why do ppl love to show their ignorance ? Insecure too much ? This game (probably) started slow because it's not the most family friend game ever and the learning curve is pretty steep, discouraging a lot of people that played the beta.
then why of all games does he make references to Overwatch?
WAT It's more like old school fast fps, unreal tournament, quake etc.
Thats what i wanted it to be but its its not
I find it enjoyable. Decent game for only 30 dollars
And Overwatch is so original? The game literally took Team Fortress, added heros as subclasses, and supers from Destiny. If Lawbreakers is a copy of Overwatch, the later is just a copy of Team Fortress 2 and MOBAs.
took supers from destiny? LOL what!?!??!!?!?!???!??! CoD Black Ops 3 was the closest to stealing off Destiny Supers but there's nothing in overwatch that mimicks destiny.
Whether or not a game is original has nothing to do with it being good. Honestly no game is original anymore these days. The problem is Lawbreakers just plays it too safe, it's not really that good, but it's also not bad. It's just merely okay.
To be fair, overwatch is garbage too. Some people just love garbage.
Get good bro, you Hanzo main
@awdevoftw No it's not. You don't like it? Fine. For you is garbage? Good, your point of view. In general, Overwatch, is NOT garbage at all.
Give me one reason why it's garbage. I'm willing to bet you played some characters once, didn't understand wtf was going on and kept dying.
or maybe next time don't insult console gamers in general how bout da cliffy b?
You do realize that the dude in a very real way created and refined many of the mechanics that Blizzard apes in Overwatch.
Clearly haven't played Lawbreakers. Unreal Tournament is a better comparison than Overwatch. Your ignorant "hot take" does the game an injustice
I can tell you haven't played it yet. It doesn't play like overwatch at all.
Overwatch is far from original plus it has a ton of issues
Tons of issues like what?
Lawbreakers has awful design. People don't like the look. Overwatch has incredible design. Honestly OW isn't a game I care to play but I can recognize what it does well. Everything it does is solid. But not innovative, just a MOBA FPS game with different characters to play and RPG elements. No single player seems meh to me. I don't want to buy a game just for Online Battling especially when lag is an issue.
Such a shame not releasing on Xbox One and Nintendo Switch making it cross play.
The Switch is way too weak to run this game, be realistic.
xbox one s cant run it either
Do you think this game is more demanding than GTA 5? GTA 5 runs on the 360/PS3, The Switch is more powerful than the 360/PS3.... Yeah i don't think running it is the problem. They know their audience and Nintendo fans wouldnt buy it. I main a PC and got no interest in lawbreakers.
It does seem strange for Cliffy B to totally disregard the Xbox family of consoles, I mean the Xbox 360 pretty much made Cliffy B what he is to day. I guess Sony gave him a blank cheque and told him to write a large number on it.
Yes you are , cause if you were super confident in the game you would shut up and continue the behind the scenes work to improve it more but yet here you are try to reassure everyone including yourself that it's doing great. When it's not .
It was an interview. If you dont understand how N4G works please use a different site for your gaming news, or cease posting in the comment section. Thanks!
Yes he's worried that his first venture on his own is a failure.and one doesn't need to know how a site works to comment on said site or articles. If you don't like my comment just move along . Cause am going to post weather you agree or don't . So take care
It's not his first venture on his own...
Edit: Meant to reply to the OP. Sorry. Cliff worried? Doesn't sound like him. Sounds kind of hyperbolic to me to assert that he is worried about something when he has much more details about the sales of the game than you do. He may be worried. He may not care. He may be right where he expected to be. While I don't like the way CliffyB expresses his opinions much of the time, he is a straight shooter, and overall, is someone that knows what to expect. Even the times he goes on about stuff we don't like, he's still usually right more often than he's wrong. I have no interest in the game itself, but what does he have to worry about with this game? If it flops, he can just move onto the next game. At this point, has it flopped? May not have done overwatch numbers, but does that make it a flop? All that matters are the expectations that he had from the game, and if he met those, there is no reason to worry. If he didn't meet them, he is the kind of guy that looks at the reason why....usually after trying to blame something else first. Worry isn't something he's prone to though. All that being said, you said you were typing angrily to someone who pointed out a grammatical error. My question to you is why so angry over this? Do you have some reason to be angry about it? What is your personal investment in this game or CliffyB himself? Seems you're more worried about it than he is....and there is really no reason for you to be. So.....what's the deal with you, and why behave like a child. Were you personally offended that he said this? Does his stated stance have any bearing on your life whatsoever? Was his comment directed at you to offend you in some way? Or is this just another instance of you trying to make something out of nothing, and be an a** to those you don't like like you normally are?
You meant whether not weather. Just saying. Anyway im not interested in the game, online only no thanks cliffy. Come with that single player next time
Thank you for the correction ., Was typing rather angrily and not paying attention.
@rain when I stated typing angrily had nothing to do with this game or article so lets stop trying turn my comment into some BS logic or create some lame reason that u have interpreted . Second BK can go broke and Cliffy B can disappear from gaming and I wouldn't shed a tear nor would I concern myself about .
"we wanted to make a character-based first person shooter that appeals to the Call of Duty and Halo crowd"... lol, so you decided not to release it on Xbox, Tweet smak to your xbox 'fans' and downplay the new X development platform. Reap what you sow.
True, Xbox is the home for MP games. Of course PS4 has a higher install base, but that wont help if most of them only play SP games.
Most PS4 games are only single player? Name them.
Why do people say that?, ps4 has multiplayer in almost all their exclusives. And it doesn't matter on that anyways if you multiplat games
While I would definitely disagree that Xbox is somehow the "home" for multiplayer games, I do think Microsoft's first/second party strength generally lies with their multiplayer titles while Sony's first/second party strength is with their singleplayer titles. So I can kind of see where he's coming from, even if he's still wrong about Xbox somehow being the "home" for MP games.
No it's it's, that's just a dumb thing to say. Just because MS focuses the attention of their own games on MP doesn't make the whole console the "home" of MP games. PlayStation has all the big mp games and that's where they sell more. Calling Xbox home of MP is a ridiculous false narrative.
Kind of like how Sunset Overdrive did so poorly on xbone cause it was more of a Playstation like game created by former Playstation only developers, right?
Yet they play and sell better on ps4
This isn't last gen. Just saying.
Xbox is the home of where games flop in sales because of its pathetic install base. Why do you think they skipped the xbox one? did you pull that statement out of your ass? How do you know most people play single player games on ps4? Did you ask every single ps4 owner in the world what they play? Last time I checked, multiplayer games like call of duty, destiny and battlefield were the highest selling games on ps4. Xbox fanboys lie just like microsoft do.
@Bigboss, I was just looking at NPD from December and it shows Xbox leading PS4 in game sales across the board. Where are you getting your information?
Whoa, dont get triggered guys. Just look at the UPCOMING LINEUP OF EXCLUSIVES: X1: Forza 7 - MP Sea of Thieves - MP ONLY Halo 6 - MP Crackdown 3 - MP State of Decay 2 - MP Path of Exile - MP PUBG - MP ONLY Conan Exiles - MP ONLY PS4: GOD of War - SP ONLY GT SPORT - MP Spiderman - SP ONLY Death Stranding - SP ONLY Days Gone - SP ONLY Detroit: Become Human - SP ONLY KNACK 2 BABYYYYY - MP Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom - SP ONLY The Last of Us 2 - MP So tell me again about that PS4 MP juggernauts please.
@LP Most games across all platforms are SP games. That being said, PS has plenty of MP offerings to choose from. More than MS does really. MS just has a few higher profile ones on lock.
@Death gotta go all the way back to December to find the last time Xbox was selling more games than ps4 huh? You say he's making stuff up, you're doing the same...
@stogs, December was a more relevant month to the games he listed. It was also one of the biggest months for sales. If you want to find a month where PlayStation is dominating in sales and surpasses December NPD, by all means post it.
@Death so the fanboys have gone so low to now use monthly wins for some kind of hollow victory? Here's real facts: Destiny - 6.5 million on ps4, 3.5 on x1 Battlefield 1 - 7 million on ps4, 4.5 on x1 Cod - 7 million on ps4, 4.5 on x1. Care to reach some more?
@stogz, I'm not sure where your numbers are coming from, but the console with half as many sold sells more than half as many games from what you are showing. According to your numbers, Xbox owners buy more games per console than PlayStation owners. BF and COD sell 2/3 the amount of games on Xbox with 1/2 as many consoles? Damn, that's a pretty powerful statement. Thanks for the information. If you want to reach more, go for it.
@Death yes, the biggest games of the year that last gen would be sold way more on the 360 sold barely half as many as ps4. Cod, associated with Xbox sold less on it, but hey gotta take a victory when you can right? Now let's look at damn near every other game and see sales are way, way more on ps4. And because of those 3 games now all Xbox owners buy more games? Attach rates are extremely similar between the 2. But hey, you gotta grab a victory any way you fanboys can right?
I hope the xbox fanbase show him that same love back when he decides to launch it on the system. I know i won't support his game or anything else he puts out. I feel for the team. But cliffy is a douche bag
Not seeing a dime from me .
Xbox sales wouldn't have done much for the bottom line when the bigger user base has given it trouble, already. That said, I played the Beta on PC and it was incredibly fun, so I hope in the end it lives on!
PlayStation fans don't have any reason to support cliffy beyond buying his game if it is good. Xbox fans on the other hand had some loyalty to cliffy thanks to his efforts at epic and his work on gears... There would have been many that would have tried it based off of his name alone, he has burned that bridge. I don't try to hold unnecessary grudges, but he has pissed me off with his arrogant comments regarding many things. However, had he kept his potty mouth shut and released on Xbox, I might have given it a try.
@2cents I dunno if Xbox fans owe him any loyalty. But at the same time, since his name is probably more connected with Xbox than PS, and many xbox fans are familiar with his work, he probably would have gotten more attention from the Xbox user than he did from the PS user. Because of that, he probably could have shown a higher percentage of sales on the system relative to the install base, instead of just relying on raw numbers of PS owners when making his decision. I don't personally really begrudge the man, although I dislike the way he expresses his opinions at times in a condescending manner. But I do know that a lot of his opinions end up being true, or feel the core of what he's saying is more often than not true. I don't think that's a reason to ignore his game though. I ignore it, or at least won't buy it because it's not my kind of game. But I wouldn't actively try to bring the man, or the game down over my personal feelings for him, or the decisions he made on it's release. I can understand why some would be upset with how he addressed those fans on the xbox side though, and that holds some weight in the amount of support one would give him or the game.
I don't think he owes anyone anything. He made the game where he wanted to make it. Disgruntled fans can either buy one of the systems it's available in, or go without it.
Nobody's building a pc or buying a ps4 for lawbreakers.
@ native: Well, if they don't, they won't have access to the game. It shouldn't take Rocket Science for one to know what to to do if they really want a game. Sitting around moaning about it won't change anything. If the interest isn't really there, why would come in here in the first place?
@ LP-Elenen "Disgruntled fans can either buy one of the systems it's available in, or go without it" What funny about you're comment is. Steam and ps4 owner aren't buying or playing it. Which is why their player count is so low. PS4 gamers aren't interested in buying this game since 1) uncharted dlc comes out this month and 2) destiny launch next month. Why would they buy this game when they got better games coming for one. PC/ steam gamers aren't interested in buying this game since they have overwatch, counterstrike and Pubg that's eating up their time. Xbox one gamers would have bought the game but because cliffy insulted and turned his back on the fanbase. That bridge is burnt.
Am going without , I will survive
@ The 10th Rider: I disagree, especially when Sony has just as many properties with proper multiplayer elements and they have balanced it out well.
The problem isnt Lawbreakers itself, its a solid game. The problems are Overwatch, CSGO and PUBG which are the games most PC Gamers are at right now when it comes to shooters. Coming out right now was a bad move to be honest.
yeah.. you nailed it. Those three games can't be toppled right now... you'd have to release a juggernaut to compete ..
It's like when the MOBA market exploded and there were dozens coming out. Most crashed and burned and Dota and League still dominate the market. Lawbreakers simply came too late in the game for the genre it is, other titles already ave large playerbases and lots of interest and it's going to be incredibly difficult for a new one to carve out its own space.
I think it's really hard for any game these days to really make a mark, the gaming industry is incredibly competitive. Despite the amount of great games that came out past 5 years, only a handful became memorable to most
