Amazon Game Studios changes Breakaway following alpha feedback, adds shadow huntress Jarra

Cast your mind back to Christmas carols and unfortunate egg nog binges of late 2016, and you might recall that Amazon Games Studios was running its first title, Breakaway, through a short alpha test.

Clearly it was a beneficial test for the studio’s 4v4 brawler, as the devs said that they received a load of useful feedback for the game’s direction and development. “We identified four opportunities where we could tangibly change the gameplay for a better experience,” AGS said. “Give players better movement options, more options for combat capabilities, refine the buildable experience, and revisit the balance of gold in the game.”

As the team works on all of that, a new warrior steps onto Breakaway’s battlefield. This would be Jarra, the shadow huntress, a stealth assassin with low health and high burst DPS against single targets. The team announced her on a recent livestream, which you can watch below.

Looks good! This sort of game might be perfect for me, it has sort of an MMO PvP feeling due to the 3rd person view and ability system, but it doesn’t have all that PvE that makes MMO devs regard their PvP as tacked on side content. Gonna keep an eye on this one.

I also find that to be unlikely… 40M is an absolute absurd number, I’m not sure I’ve ever heard of a stream getting above 1M . 40K viewers would still be impressive, assuming that’s what he meant?

He said viewers multiple times and he went from the mid 30 million to 46 million in just a couple minutes so I laughed and stopped watching. Even views would be a stupid number for an unknown game with zero advertising.

The hype train is already going strong.
