    I'm pretty sure the actual teaser is whatever is behind the poster, Gerrard.

    This is going to be like Mythos and Hellgate: London where people end up more interested in Double Dudes than the real product. :smug:

    Hopefully they're not dumb enough to make another multiplayer focused game, especially a multiplayer shooter. Any multiplayer game they make now will be tainted by the failure of Lolbreakers and nobody will buy it.

    I can't help but wonder what the Lawbreakers player base thinks of this. Has anyone informed him?

    As 10-15% of it, I said it already, It's pretty damn shitty to have waited until the very end of Q1 to inform that the update schedule previously advertised has been cancelled and won't see the light, if not never, in a long loong time. I wonder how much of this is BK and Nexon, but it's pretty baffling that the PSA still dares to talk about transparency when that's the very last thing they can be proud about especially now. It's not like that mattesr considering that all the people jerking off about the flop's knowledge of the game and the state of it boils down to CLiffyB's face and SteamDB screenshots. I myself was of the thought that packaging the planned updates and a marketing boost could reboot it at least to a modest level, but Nexon doesn't seem to think likewise.

    Haha, of course their "passion project" is a battle royale.

    Also no sight of Nexon as publisher.

    Well at least that's good. The game also lowkey seems pretty interesting but hey, if you fail at making a dent in a fad genre, you go try that with another one. Oh well.

    I'm guessing they must've been cooking this one up when it became obvious Lawbreakers wouldn't be pulling any numbers, instead of continuing to maintain a corpse.

    Though like Arnust said, nothing screams 'desperate hacks' more than jumping on the latest trends in order to maximize your chances at exposure and profit when you're so creatively bankrupt and insecure about your original ideas gaining any traction.

    Well, we can only see if it actually will. Albeit Durandal I wouldn't have called LB an attempt of getting in the bandwagon considering it started development at just about the same time as its competitors. But in this instance it's quite the less ambiguous if it actually is, no doubt.

    Uhhh, why the fuck are they revealing a game just a day before it's actual release?
    Do they even know what the fuck marketing is?
