Lawbreakers Closed Beta Coming Next Weekend

Posted on March 6, 2017 by Rae Michelle Richards

Lawbreakers, the brand new first person shooter from Cliff Bleszinski – the mind behind Gears of War – will have its first closed beta from March 16th thru the 19th.  Alongside the announcement of the closed beta and confirmation that Lawbreakers will be playable once again at PAX East.

If you are in Boston this coming weekend for PAX East Lawbreakers will be playable on the Expo floor thanks to the efforts of publisher Nexon at booth #13055.

In the latest Lawbreakers developer update – which you can view below – both CliffyB and Rohan Revas give viewers a tease about what is coming with the closed beta. They are very clear that this is not the same game that we enjoyed during the closed alpha last summer. In the many months since that time the developers have added new maps, new modes and possibly a new support class.

A new logo and tagline for Lawbreakers has also been released. Nexon is now using the tagline “Gravity – Defying – Combat” to promote the title.

Posted on June 27, 2016 by Fionna Schweit

Nexon releases new video today for Riders of Icarus . The MMORPG fantasy is currently in closed beta and will begin its open beta as of 6 July 2016.

In the meantime, players can now purchase their Founder’s Pack here for a limited time. The servers in the closed beta will remain open until 29 June. 

In Riders of Icarus, players roam picturesque regions in order to save humanity from an ancient evil that resurfaces: their combat skills evolve as they explore the world and collect and tame mystical beasts that they turn into bold frames, and thus powerful weapons. Besides these aerial and terrestrial wanderings Riders heroes of Icarus also benefits from a combo system. Once you are in close use devastating combo moves to defeat the numerous enemies and deadly bosses of in the air or on land.

Personally I think this game looks amazing, Ill be at least taking a farther in depth look at it for sure later one.
