Boss Key Productions announced that the open beta for their upcoming first-person shooter LawBreakers will begin July 28. To be exact, it’ll begin on 7am PT on Friday, and will end July 31 at 7am PT. Players should be able to pre-download the beta in “the next 24 hours,” according to the developer.

Boss Key Productions also announced that they’ll be holding a “Play the Beta Contest” for PlayStation 4 owners. I’ll let them explain the official rules:

And for those on PS4, there’s the Play The Beta Contest, where if you share a screenshot from the game on Twitter using the hashtags #SkilledAF and #LBBetaPS4, you’ll have a chance at a custom LawBreakers-themed PS4 console!

We got to go hands-on with LawBreakers at E3 2017. Here’s a snippet of what Paulmichael Contreras thought of the title in his preview:

LawBreakers has a lot of lore, and Boss Key Productions has crafted an interesting world filled with unique characters with their own personalities. Dan Nanni stated that since their team was small, they opted to create a multiplayer-only game first, and to perhaps visit single player at a later time. This reminds me of the path that Titanfall took, and it appears that game found success using such a model; hopefully LawBreakers follows in that game’s footsteps, while making some low-gravity trails of its own.

[Boss Key Productions] has found a legitimately different way to take on the character shooter genre. While it feels fresh now, the challenge will be to keep the fresh ideas coming. Considering the pedigree of the team at the studio, however, the odds are looking pretty good that this will be a shooter that many won’t want to put down after it launches this coming August.

LawBreakers releases on August 8, 2017 for PlayStation 4 and PC.
