Law Breakers’ latest mode, Turf War, is a twist on Domination that proves just as capable of setting up late-game steals as Overcharge. Here, there are three points to take control of, but rather than an ongoing tussle as possession goes back and forth, capturing a location locks it for the remainder of each short match. Each objective you capture earns your team a point, but locking down all three with just five players requires strong communication and coordination as the opposing team positions itself to attempt the same. Once all objectives are spoken for, there’s a short period in which teams can score kills, in turn accelerating your capture speed in the following round. Like Overcharge, Turf War’s spin on a classic mode type feels strikingly fresh, especially when combined with the game’s roster of idiosyncratic hero characters.
