LawBreakers is doing its best to be relevant in today’s overpopulated hero shooter genre, and its ALL-STAR UPDATE might just be the thing that pushes it out in the open. We will be going over the new competitive ranked mode, Boss Leagues, a brand-new map and a map variant, new Blitzball themed character and weapon skins, and even some quality of life improvements.
First, let’s talk about the Boss Leagues, the game’s competitive ranked mode. Players have been asking for a ranked mode for a while now, so the developers finally decided to prepare the Boss Leagues. The first season is going to be called Season 0, or the beta season, and whoever decides to help and participate in Season 0 of Boss Leagues will be rewarded with the Season 0 Profile Icons and the Silver Weapon Skins. Make sure to also send any feedback that you have if you participate so that Boss Key Productions know what to change in the future when other seasons come.
A new map will also be coming with this update, and it’s called GATEWAY, the map that was teased during the 2017 Content Roadmap. Yes, this is the map where an arena floats above San Francisco. We even got some backstory on this map and how it came to be. Thanks to Hadronium, the Blitzball stadium floated through the sky and it became the world’s first “Mobile Stadium”. A new map variant was also introduced, and for everyone that wanted Promenade Night to be different, it can be with the Redfalls BLOOD MOON variant.
Lastly, we have the new Blitzball themed items and the quality of life changes. As far as the Blitzball themed items are concerned, we have character and weapons skins, profile icons, and kick decals, so you have over 120 brand new items to collect, all of which can be found in the All-Star Stash-drops. The quality of life updates includes multi-region queuing, balance adjustments, and so on. This LawBreakers update is coming on October 19th, 2017 (Pacific: 7:00 AM, Eastern: 10:00 AM, CEST: 4:00 PM).
