If you can't get enough of online brawls by way of Blizzard's Overwatch and Gearbox Software's Battleborn, there's a third contender out there. It's called LawBreakers, and it's the brainchild of Gears of War creator Cliff Bleszinski. The arena-based multiplayer shooter from developer Boss Key Productions is now offering registration for alpha testing to anyone who wants to get down and start breakin' the law, breakin' the law.Simply head to the official LawBreakerswebsite to sign up, and you'll be notified via email with further instructions on how to access the game, which is exclusive to Steam. Alternatively, you can add the game to your Steam Wishlist to be considered for the alpha test.

The competitive shooter was originally poised to take the free-to-play route, but that's since changed as Bleszinski opted to revamp LawBreakers for a pay-to-play release instead. Players can fight on the side of the "Law" or opt to suit up as "Breakers" across the Grand Canyon, Mount Rushmore and even the Santa Monica coastline in a "rebuilt America." If you're interested in adding a third competitive shooter to your PC repertoire, you might want to get in while the getting's good.Twitter
