Ill-fated arena shooter Lawbreakers announced that it's going free-to-play this week with one pretty big catch; the game's servers will be shutting down in September.

Lawbreakers was a classically inspired FPS where players could pull off gravity-defying glory kills in a fast-paced, multiplayer arena. Unfortunately, the game struggled to find traction soon after its launch and has now announced it'll be closing down its servers as of September. The news comes after it was recently confirmed that Boss Key Productions would be closing its doors after Lawbreakers and Radical Heights failed to gather enough momentum.

The Lawbreakers team at Nexon posted a news update on their website announcing the news.

"In light of the unfortunate news regarding Boss Key Productions shutting down, we regret to announce that we will be sunsetting our support of LawBreakers on September 14, 2018 as we are not able to operate the game.

"Our servers will remain open until then and the game will be made free-to-play on Steam for all players effective immediately. Please note that any and all new in-game purchases will also be disabled and we will not be able to accept any refund requests."

"We truly appreciate your understanding in this difficult time and we want to thank you all your support and being a part of the passionate LawBreakers community. Thank you for staying with us throughout this journey."

So, you have until September should you wish to try the game. Simply head on over to Steam where you can download it for free. The game also released on PlayStation 4, although whether that version will become free to play is not yet known.

REVIEW. Written by Mike Holmes

"The clever implementation of gravity-defying combat comes with some satisfying and responsive shooter mechanics."
