Amazon aims for fun while viewing and playing.
Amazon Game Studios’ upcoming Breakaway looks like a raucous, riotous multiplayer battle with potential. If the newest trailer out of Gamescom 2017 is to be believed, it could be one of the next big competitive games you start reading about here and there, much like how PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and how it ended up expanding and growing so quickly.
It’s being built with Twitch streaming in mind, blending shooting mechanics and sports with the same kind of gameplay that has us coming back to titles like Overwatch and LawBreakers. Amazon has stated that it’s been created with Twitch viewers in mind, making sure that it’s not only fun to play, but it’s fun to watch, with features that can assist players in keeping their audiences entertained.
Those are strong words, especially for some viewers who balk at watching streams entirely, but if Breakway can pull it off, it will accomplish something quite interesting. If that sounds like a game you’d like to try out, especially if you’re into streaming, alpha signups are currently live. You can check out the new trailer below.
