Another round of open beta testing seems to be in the works for LawBreakers during the coming weekend. There is no official announcement yet, but Steam lists a beta testing date for 28 July 2017 and it seems to coincide with the upcoming PlayStation 4 open beta.

LawBreakers already has a few rounds worth of beta frags behind its belt, but now it looks like another, probably final, round of open beta testing is going to take place this weekend. There isn't any official news regarding the next round of testing, but Steam is allowing pre-loading for the game in preparation for 28 July 2017.

A beta test for the same date has been announced for PlayStation 4 as well, and it looks like it won't be requiring a PlayStation Plus subscription for participation. Rumours are floating around about the possibility of a Xbox One version after the PC and PlayStation 4 launch.

LawBreakers comes from some of the same people that brought you the classic Unreal Tournament, Gears of War and Planetside, so hopes are high for this one. The official launch date for the self described double A (AA) title is 8 August 2017, so this may very well be the last chance to give the game a free spin before release.

Nvidia has recently released an updated set of drivers targeting several games, and LawBreakers was among them. It could be that Boss Key Productions is trying to squeeze in some extra testing with the updated drivers, which were released yesterday.

The game itself is a character shooter similar to Overwatch, but tries to add faster paced gameplay and more level verticality to the mix.
