Fans of Cliff Bleszinski, also known as Cliffy B will know that his games like Gears of War feature plenty of blood, guts and gore. It seems he wants to continue this trend with his new game Lawbreakers.
While discussing the game, he was quoted by Vandal.net as saying that he wants to achieve a rating of “adults only” for the game. This will no doubt make fans happy, but may also cause a few concerns with censors around the world:
“I want the version lawbreakers ‘adults only’ all these games first-person shooter for all ages,” said Bleszinski, ensuring that you will have a lot of blood and we can dismember enemies and make them explode .”
While he wants to up the blood levels in his game, he reference Overwatch as a game that won’t have the same feel as Lawbreakers. He says that while Blizzard’s new game may have gone for the humour, and is great it doesn’t have the tone that he wants to achieve with a game like Lawbreakers.
Lawbreakers will be a free-to-play multiplayer and earlier we reported on Bleszinzki’s comments on why a lot of shooters are moving away from single-player campaigns. It will be interesting to see how popular Lawbreakers is, especially if there is more of an adult feel to it. With games such as Overwatch and Battleborn going for the more comic cartoony feel to the action, maybe there fanbase just waiting for the likes of Lawbreakers and other games such as Doom to fill the gap.
What are your thoughts on Lawbreakers? Are you looking for more gore in your First person shooter?
