LawBreaker System Requirements Revealed

Developer; Boss Key Productions and Publisher; Nexon America, have teamed up to bring you a new take on the Arena Shooter game genre called: LawBreakers!

What is the backstory of LawBreakers?  From the outside looking in, LawBrakers has to do with the fight against good and evil.  The good being the "Law" who are trying to keep order and peace in the new world, and the evil being the "Breakers" who are out to get rich and break the law selling their new age drugs.

The more you look into the backstory the more you will find about this "new world" that came about after the earth's moon was either destroyed or exploded, causing causing chunks of the moon to come flying down to earth.  Due to these new chunks of land invading earth, there was a shift in the earths gravity.  Not an overall change, as some part of earth still have, what we call, normal gravity and others have no gravity at all.  

The lack of gravity will add an interesting feature to the gameplay and the art style is definitely aids in the futuristic change of the earths geography.   

Not many details are know about the game, but there are some trailers and Q&A videos provided on their YouTube page.  What we do know is that it was recently added onto the Steam library, as a game you can add to your wishlist and be notified when it is available. Also on the steam page are the system requirements for the game's alpha stage.  Keep in mind that these do not represent the final game system requirements:

Paragon Early Access Now Live!

Paragon Early Access officially launched today and the "Battle for Agora" has begun! The new third-person MOBA powered by the Unreal Engine getting a lot of attention due to its gameplay and graphics.

So, you've heard the hype and thinking how can I get in on the early access? Great question!  In order to get into the Early Access season, all you have to do is purchase one of 3 founders packs found here! The 3 tiers are priced as follows:  The base Founder Pack: $19.99, Challenger Founder's Pack $59.99, and Master Founder's Pack $99.99.  Each tear comes with master challenges, boosts, and the top two tiers come with a founders pack for a friend!

I've been lucky to be able to play Paragon for the past week and I can definitely say that all the hype is spot on.  I am not a big MOBA fan, mainly due to the top down camera angle, but Paragon brings the fun of a third-person shooter to the MOBA genre.  This for me makes all the difference and much more exciting. That along with some cool characters and art style of the game, makes it a contender in the MOBA genre. 

 
If you want to check out some gameplay, be sure to tune into our EVGA Twitch channel where we will be streaming it.  If you want to join in on the action yourself, then be sure to head over to the Epic Games site and purchase a founder pack to get in on the early access.  Let us know what your though are on Paragon and if you plan on joining in the early access, down in the comment section below!
